Did you know that there are millions of women living in poverty who miss out on daily life because they lack access to period supplies?
We’re getting personal here on the blog today and talking about something we can all relate to: that sometimes unpredictable time of the month that can be oh-so-disruptive. Well just imagine a scenario where you didn’t have access to tampons or pads. Did you know, 1 in 4 women have struggled to purchase period supplies products in the past year due to lack of income.
I’m so happy to be partnering with Walmart and U by Kotex® to raise awareness of the women who simply cannot afford period supplies and be part of the movement to end period poverty. We’ve all be a situation where we didn’t have a tampon or pad with us, and can relate to the feelings of embarrassment and anxiety. And without the financial means to buy these necessary supplies, it means missing out on work, school and spending time with friends and family.
Can you imagine not having access to something so basic and essential for every woman? It’s heartbreaking that these women in need are affected in their daily routines by a product that we should all be able to have at hand.
This is where you come in!
Thankfully, U by Kotex® is proud to be the founding sponsor of The Alliance for Period Supplies, an organization (founded just this year) that helps ensure individuals in need have access to essential period products! During the entire month of October, for every U by Kotex® product purchased in-store or online at Walmart, two packages of U by Kotex® pads or liners will be donated to women in need (up to 5 million boxes).
