On Saturday, May 28th, #HappyPeriod is celebrating Menstrual Health Day in Los Angeles and Miami by providing menstrual hygiene kits to people in need who do not have access to these essential products. These product drops will be taking place at local shelters, as well as, on the streets of these cities throughout the day. The goal of the #HappyPeriod movement is to provide much needed supplies for homeless, replenish menstrual products at local shelters, educate the general public, and reduce stigma around menstrual hygiene in general.
Kali, an organic tampon subscription company has joined the movement by donating tampons for drops in both locations. “We heard about the impact #HappyPeriod has had on their communities and fell in love with their mission,” says Jonna Piira, Co-Founder of Kali. “We approached #HappyPeriod to see if we could expand their Menstrual Health Day celebration to the East Coast and were thrilled when they brought us on board to facilitate the Miami product drops.”
#HappyPeriod is now accepting donations of menstrual hygiene products, soap, undergarments, and self-care necessities. Please send products to #HappyPeriod, 4911 Mountain View Drive, Palmdale, CA 93552 and/or Attn: Kali, 101 NE 3rd Avenue, Suite 1920, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.
Kali and #HappyPeriod is also hosting a Hygiene Kit Packing Party at C&I Studios on Wednesday, May 25th from 6-8pm. Please contact Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to volunteer or recieve press information!
