Why support a menstruator in need?


In a national survey of 1,000 menstruating teens, 1 in 5 struggled to afford period products and 4 in 5 either missed or knew someone who missed class time because they did not have access to period products. 

Period poverty is not just a global issue but a local one as well.

Our goal is to help 500 people by raising enough to make 500 kits!

Each kit will include a reusable pouch, organic or biodegradable pads and panty liners and organic cotton tampons. Fihri will equally divide the kits sponsored to the Northborough Schools, Northborough Food Pantry and the Northborough Library. 

Today we are asking you to sponsor a kit to help menstruator in need. $10 will provide a menstruator with a month supply of period products. 

Menstrual products are not covered by government assistance like Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).
