I have been cleaning out my house slowly over the past few month donating to a different charity every time I fill up about 10 bags. So far, I have given away 7 bags! It feels good to purge and give away to people in need. I definitely have donation fever and have been seeking out other ways to give! I found Power to the Period. I know it sounds funny, but it is an awesome program sponsored by U by Kotex that I am excited to be working with on this sponsored blog post.
Power to the Period is the first-ever national period products drive and second installment of the U by Kotex Period Projects – a groundbreaking series of projects, each inspired and led by a woman who shares my passion for creating change.
Donate Period Products to Homeless Shelters
Many of the 3.5 million Americans who experience homelessness each year have limited access to period products. The program is inspired by a tweet from Holly Sanchez and executed in partnership with DoSomething.org, the U by Kotex Power. The Period drive encourages people to buy and donate an extra pack of period products to a homeless shelter. DoSomething.org is pretty impressive with its 5.3 million members in 131 countries. It is one of the largest global organizations for young people and social change. This tells me that this partnership is really going to work and help people. I am excited to be a part of it. The U by Kotex Power to the Period drive is proof that together we can change the way we think about, talk about and support the needs of homeless people in our communities.
