Thanks to U by Kotex for sponsoring today's discussion, regardless all opinions expressed below are completely my own.
U by Kotex is doing something to change that, inspired by a tweet sent by Holly Sanchez, they have partnered with DoSomething.org to encourage people to buy and donate an extra pack of period products to homeless shelters. This simple act of kindness is one that could change a woman's life, I've witnessed it myself. Together, as women, we can change the way we think about, talk about, and act towards the needs of homeless and needy people in our communities. The best part is, it's actually an easy task - just buy an extra pack of pads or tampons on each trip you make to the store, then make a monthly donation to a local shelter. You could change someone's life by spending a few extra dollars each time you make a Target run or a stop at Walmart... it's that easy. If you have the time maybe you could even start a Power to the Period donation drive in your area from now through September 30 and donate everything you collect to a shelter in need! Visit UbyKotex.com, DoSomething.org/Period or text PERIOD to 38383 to learn more about how you can get involved.
