Together we made magic happen!
MH Day 2020 was no walk in the park. Most MH Day partners faced severe constraints on MH Day activities and had to try new ideas due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But together, we rose to the challenge and made MH Day 2020 happen around the world. And against all odds, MH Day was bigger than ever!
What we collectively achieved this year is a testimony to the enormous power, momentum and resolve of our movement. Looking at where we are today, we’re more convinced than ever that together, we can end period stigma and period poverty by 2030!
After crunching numbers for the last month, we now have the final campaign numbers: MH Day 2020 set new all-time records!
