Your help is needed. Period.

Periods might be tough to talk about sometimes, but they are just a fact of life.

And monthly menstruation products are a necessity.


Nobody should have to pick between feeding their family and being able to afford basic hygiene products. Yet far too many people – especially those living in poverty – simply can’t afford them.

The community need is real.

Menstruation and the need for menstrual products is not a topic that many are willing to talk about. It’s personal. To some it’s a source of shame, and to many young girls in particular, it’s just embarrassing. And some are even missing school because they don’t have access to hygiene products.

For many struggling families, the issue is compounded when the need is there for both parents and kids. Add on the pressure for newcomers and refugee families, or for those who identify as trans or gender non-conforming, and it can be plain overwhelming.

So, while it’s too often a silent issue, the need is very real.

Help us collect menstruation products for those who need it.

And help somebody who is already struggling, live with a bit of the dignity we all deserve.

Tampon Tuesday is an easy way to help those in need live with dignity.
