Frequently Asked Questions
We hope you find the answer to your question below,
but if not, feel free to contact us!
What is a period pack?
A period pack includes tampons, pads, liners, sanitary wipes, and just one chocolate, all thoughtfully packaged for one or two cycles.
Where can I find period products?
What items are on your wish list?
Regular size tampons, individually wrapped pads, panti-liners, and sanitary wipes, and cosmetic bags such as Clinique, Ipsy and Estee Lauder bags.
Why not distribute re-usable pads or menstrual cups?
We do not accept donations of or distribute re-usable pads or menstrual cups because the population we serve may not have access to a place where they can adequately clean these items, which could become a health risk.
Why not distribute super or super-plus size tampons?
These present more of a risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome if worn too long, so we prefer to provide regular size tampons to those in need.
