End Period Poverty for School aged Youth

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit No More Secrets-Mind Body Spirit, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

WE REALLY NEED HELP‼️
No More Secrets Mind Body Spirit
has been extremely busy with our Period Poverty campaign as we are now doing upwards to 80 plus deliveries a week to youth and their families in need of menstrual supplies.

Apparently even though the schools were not supplying feminine hygiene products, many youth living in poverty were able to access other essentials they used to create makeshift pads such as toilet paper, socks and gloves from the lost and found, construction paper, scotch tape etc. Thus the requests are increasing substantially.

We have successfully created the only feminine hygiene bank in our offices and at one of the Philadelphia middle schools towards the end of the school year by donation supplies and spreading awareness. This model proved to be successful but it would realistically take a great deal of manpower to duplicate at multiple sites.

To that end we have successfully developed a new Initiative which we are now attempting to implement in various locations throughout the city with community support

Our Red Box Period or Not Respect the Dot, Is a community-based, Initiative, which aims to support young people throughout their periods by providing red boxes filled with free period products to local recreation centers, libraries, schools and other community based facilities.

To that end ... please HELP us begin placing these Filled Bins across our city to as many sites as possible beginning on .. 

July 1st‼️‼️‼️

We hope you are interested in helping us by partnering with us by Donating funds to purchase: :

Red Storage Bins
Menstrual Pads
Tampons
Wipes
Underwear
Soap etc

♥️ You can also help by Identifying Donation Sites in your community.
