Who are we?
Hi there! We are a group of entrepreneurship students from the University of North Texas on a crowdfunding mission. We have chosen to raise funds for She Supply, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in North Texas. This organization was founded in 2016 by two women who saw a need and vowed to make a difference in their community and fight the effects of period poverty in the North Texas area.
We are looking to raise a minimum of $500 for this crowdfunding campaign. This will supply 920 periods for women all over North Texas.
Period Poverty Facts
● More than 161,000 female households in North Texas currently live in poverty.
● In Texas, period products are taxed as luxury items, which means forms of government assistance like WIC and Lonestar Card cannot fund these products. Women have to pay out of pocket for these supplies.
● In 2021, 25% of women struggled to purchase or access period products due to income constraints
● In Dallas, Tarrant, and Denton counties, there are approximately 2,400 homeless women, not including women who survive on government assistance, battered women who visit shelters, and undocumented women who do not qualify for government assistance.
She Supply’s Mission
At She Supply , their mission is to provide a sense of decency and cleanliness to women in need, and their goal is to end period poverty. They do that by providing women with monthly feminine hygiene products; basic necessities that most of us take for granted. They also provide new bras and panties.
Currently, She Supply has delivered over 950,000 period products to women in need, with a goal of reaching 1,000,000 products delivered by the end of 2022!
With your help, we can help She Supply reach this goal even sooner.
So, are you with us in ending period poverty together?
