This Is How You Can Help End Period Poverty
This post is sponsored by U by Kotex but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
For someone who has experienced poverty first hand in a third world country, I know what it feels like to not be able to buy something I need because of lack.
It’s the basic everyday necessities like food, clean water, soap, toothpaste, and for us women, sanitary napkins! Can you imagine being on your period, on the second day, and not be able to use a pad or tampon because you simply cannot afford it? It’s tragic!
This shocked me, but did you know that 1 in 4 women have struggled to purchase period supplies products in the past year due to lack of income? That’s millions of women struggling daily every year! I hope you never be one of them.
Thankfully, U by Kotex® is proud to be the founding sponsor of The Alliance for Period Supplies, an organization (founded only this year) that helps ensure individuals in need have access to essential period products required for normal daily life. U by Kotex® is a brand I have trusted over the years and I love that they are doing this!
You and I can join the movement and help contribute up to 5 million boxes of period products to women in need with the help of U by Kotex® and walmart!
During the entire month of October, for every one U by Kotex® product purchased in store or online at Walmart, two poducts of U by Kotex® pads or liners will be donated to women in need! Additionally, Walmart will be donating $25,000 to the Alliance for Period Supplies! Let’s help support Walmart and The Alliance for Period Supplies by purchasing U by Kotex® products at our local Walmarts, both in store and/or online.
Since giving birth, I’ve already gotten my period twice, and since I’m not completely healed yet, I haven’t been able to use my menstrual cup again. U by Kotex® pads have been my go-to because it’s quick absorbent, super thin for comfortability especially for someone who’s going through postpartum recovery, and lastly, I know that 2 boxes of period products will be donated to someone in need!
