2,480 Pads Donated!
YA’LL DID IT! Not only did we meet the 2000 pad goal, we blew past it!! Altogether, you donated 2,480 menstrual pads for LA Downtown Women’s Center!
Period poverty impacts so many women who are in unstable living environments and trying to move their lives forward. Imagine your period coming along and you’ve got NO supplies. You have to improvise with other materials and hope for no leaks or worse. Or maybe you miss work or school. There is an incredible inequity when it comes to having a period in America – a lack of reproductive health care, hygiene items taxed and not offered in public, stigma around pads and tampons – but you all helped some women in LA not to worry about having basic supplies for their next menstrual cycle.
