Because it’s incredibly important to give back, especially to other women

#PeriodProject - Honestly Jamie

I try to give back whenever I can. I volunteered for years at Aviva House, a home for at-risk teen girls, I donate money to animal charities (mostly because it’s too emotional for me to volunteer in-person), I donate a ton of my unused beauty products to various charities…but it never really feels like enough, am I right?

What I’ve learned over the years is that feeling like what you do to give back isn’t enough is completely wrong.

Every little bit helps. We all just need to do what we can and, most recently, I found out about Power to the Period– the first-ever national period products drive and second installment of the U by Kotex Period Projects – a groundbreaking series of projects, each inspired and led by a woman who shares the brand’s passion for creating change.

Something I didn’t know: Many of the 3.5 million Americans who experience homelessness each year have limited access to and few places to turn for period products and, clearly, as women that’s something we need EVERY MONTH.  A young woman named Holly Sanchez inspired Power to the Period with a Twitter post calling for everyone to buy an extra box of pads or tampons when shopping for feminine care to donate to a homeless shelter. Power to the Period is proof that, together, we can change the way we think about, talk about and support the period needs of the homeless in our communities.

Here’s how to help:

  • Start a Power to the Period donation drive or donate new boxes of period products to a homeless shelter in your area.
  • Visit UbyKotex.com, DoSomething.org/period or text PERIOD to 38383 to learn how to get involved.
