Women of all ages have their period. It’s a way of life and something we come to expect. I love giving back and I’m super excited to pair up with U by Kotex. They are a founding sponsor of The Alliance for Period Supplies! Founded in May 2018, this national organization helps ensure that women in need have access to essential period products required to participate fully in daily life. Now you can be part of the movement to help end period poverty!
For some, this seems like a given. But in reality, 1 in 4 women have struggled to purchase period supplies in this past year due to lack of income. This is a bigger struggle than you may think. A few years ago when the economy here in the U.S. was unstable, my family had to make sure we had enough to pay necessities like food. My dad was stuck with three girls at home so it put into perspective that period supplies are needed but sometimes we don’t realize how important they are. There’s women of all ages to this day, that don’t have easy access to them and that has to change.
How to Help
For the entire month of October, whenever you buy one U by Kotex product in store or online at Walmart, two packages of U by Kotex pads or liners will be donated to women in need! Walmart will also be donating $25,000 to the Alliance for Period Supplies.
This is an issue and U by Kotex for Alliance for Period Supplies want to raise awareness of the millions who are living without easy access to period supplies. There needs to be an advocate for legislative change to make them accessible and affordable. The goal is to focus on communities to distribute supplies and develop initiatives to continue providing for those in need.
It’s so easy to help! I went to my local Walmart and picked up some U by Kotex items. Now another person out there will receive some in return. It may seem small, but your contribution can help continue this conversation and provide help.
Don’t forget to buy U by Kotex at Walmart because your purchase gives back! Share this info with other women and let’s lend each other a hand.
