1 in 4 women have struggled to purchase period supplies products in the past year due to lack of income. U by Kotex® is proud to be the founding sponsor of The Alliance for Period Supplies. This new national organization (founded in May 2018) helps ensure that individuals in need have access to essential period products required to participate fully in daily life.
I cannot imagine having to choose between necessities such as food or shelter, and hygiene products like period supplies. Unfortunately, millions of women are facing this very same decision every single day here in America. The work that U by Kotex® is doing to help women who are facing this harsh reality is amazing. They’re supporting the nationwide development and expansion of community-based period supply initiatives capable of providing a reliable supply of period products to individuals in need.
U by Kotex® is also distributing period supplies and funding to community partners/community-based period supply initiatives. They’re also advocating for legislative changes to make period supplies more accessible and affordable regardless of income.
How U can be part of the Mission:
During the entire month of October, for every one (1) U by Kotex® product purchased in store or online at Walmart, (2) packages of U by Kotex® pads or liners will be donated to women in need (up to 5 million boxes) plus Walmart will be donating $25,000 to the Alliance for Period Supplies. Purchase your U by Kotex® products next time you’re shopping at Walmart (or using their Online Grocery Pickup – YAY!) to help someone in need!
