Period Power

Learn about period poverty in the United States, raise awareness, and provide support!

What is the Period Power event?

About the cause: Many are aware of the impact on young women in the developing world as they are often forced to miss school during their periods. What many people don’t realize is that this is a problem in the United States as well!

Two-thirds of women in poverty did not have the resources to buy menstrual hygiene products at some point during the last year. One-fifth of those in poverty struggle to afford period products on a monthly basis. Without these items, women’s movements and ambitions are tampered. They may not feel able to leave their homes, go to work, or participate in civic life.

We can’t afford to wait for others to act. We can be part of the solution.

What we’ll do: Period Kits and WeHero are enabling companies to provide feminine hygiene supplies for those in need one corporate volunteer event at a time.

After hearing an educational keynote about the real need for period supplies in the United States, we’ll put together kits for women who are struggling to decide whether to buy food or tampons.

Join us for this virtual event as we learn and volunteer over a fun activity at home, in-office, or at a venue of your choice. Let’s provide some period kits!
