The MH DAY 2020 campaign materials

Periods don’t stop for pandemics. Neither do we.

The COVID-19 pandemic is not going to stop us. Let’s re-double our efforts on social media and make the MH Day 2020 online campaign bigger than ever! To support you, we’ve teamed up with four amazing artists for a bigger, more diverse and easier to use set of materials than ever – including an infographic (new) on COVID-19 and periods. All campaign illustrations include a white space for your logo and texts tailored to the illustrations are available in six different languages.
