This post is sponsored by U by Kotex but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
Last month I shared here on my blog how U by Kotex and the Alliance of Period Supplies were helping women in need by donating two product for every purchase made through Walmart in-store or online, and the most amazing part was Walmart was donating $25,000 to the Alliance for Period Supplies.
What is Period Poverty?
1 in 4 women have struggled to purchase period supplies products in the past year due to lack of income. I am thankful to have never experienced having to choose between period supplies or other living essentials, but it breaks my heart to know that other women are faced with that decision every day.
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.
The Alliance for Period Supplies mission is:
- To raise awareness of the millions of women living in poverty who miss out on daily life because they lack access to period supplies.
- Support the nationwide development and expansion of community-based period supply initiatives capable of providing a reliable supply of period products to individuals in need
- Distribute period supplies and funding to community partners/community-based period supply initiatives
- Advocate for legislative changes to make period supplies more accessible and affordable regardless of income
The U by Kotex® & Walmart campaign isn’t over! You can still support women when you buy period supplies for yourself. Find out more about this incredible initiative that helps women live their best lives here and how YOU can be a part of it. THANK YOU for helping to end period poverty!
