Våra mensaktivistkollegor på NFCC International och Bushtember Foundation kör en kampanj i nästa vecka för att dra in så mycket dollares som möjligt för att minska menstabun och för att fler världen över ska få vettiga mensskydd. Dela/skänk! (TW cisnormativt språk). Och btw: tipsa oss gärna om andra menskampanjer! Sharing is caring.

Countdown until Giving Tuesday!

Hello friends,

We need to raise $10,000 before midnight on Giving Tuesday, December 1st! Please help us by contributing what you can, and passing this on!

In many developing countries, ash, sand, leaves and dirty rags are all things a girl is using right because she doesn’t have access to pads during her period. Even worse, many are isolated from their family, schools and daily lives without fresh water or food because they are told they are dirty and impure. The taboos around menstruation keep these serious issues in the dark – and the #LetsFaceItPeriod is calling them out loud and clear! Proper management and an open discussion about menstrual health is essential to keep girls in school, and allow them to grow into our future leaders!

With your help, we can continue to reach the girls and women who need us!

With gratitude,

The #LetsFaceItPeriod team
