The Period Spot Menstrual Hub to EndPeriodPoverty

No More Secrets has been on the ground for the last 5 years tirelessly fighting to end period poverty in vulnerable populations. These two powerhouses independently deliver a 3-5 month supply of menstrual products to over 200 people a week in addition to shipping nationwide and faithfully contributing to schools, religious and community organizations. No More Secrets singlehandedly distributes over 38,000 menstrual products a week, which exceeds any other organization in the nation.  This is a carefully orchestrated operation conducted from a 2nd floor office space where they ascend and descend 4 flights of stairs ardently over 25 times a day carrying bags and boxes easily weighing over 50 pounds. 

Doing this physical labor every day is not sustainable and No More Secrets needs a space that will be able to better help them conduct and amplify their incredible work. This GoFundMe will go to the creation of The Period Spot, the first Menstrual Health Empowerment Hub. We envision The Period Spot as a menstrual supply donation and distribution center. The Period Spot will also be a Gathering Place to gain: supplies, resources, mentorship, education, empowerment, advocacy, and socialization. No More Secrets will also offer access to clean water, toilets, and resting stations for those in need. 

Your donation will directly support NMS efforts by funding:

-obtaining the building space for The Period Spot
-renovations
-furnishing
-supplies
-workshops
-technology
-menstrual products
-utilities

Our hope is that this initial Period Spot Hub will serve as a prototype to eventually be replicated in other areas and on HBCU campuses.
