The 5000 Menstrual Pad Project is to provide women and girls in marginalized communities the economic and emotional security from the societal shame and financial burden of not being able to afford feminine hygiene products.
Our youth in our day program will be involved in fundraising for the pad project. We are asking your organization to participate with them by fundraising a box(es) of pads, tampons, or panty liners to build relationships with women living in marginalized communities which will assist with dismantling feminine shame, and provide security for their community.
A large box will be housed at your site. Individuals will be able to drop off their donations in the box. A board member from Water2Spirit will pick up the donations once a month until the goal is reached.
In the past, we have had the pleasure of sharing donations with:

Nellie Beyan-Olabige helping girls and women in Liberia. We donated 5000 Pads and 1 breast pump.
Not a business? You can still help by making a small donation. Even $10 can provide us with 100 pads to support a girl in need.
