Hi folks, 

There's recently been spate of stories highlighting the humiliation faced by women prisoners unable to buy pads and tampons.

According to the daily census, Philadelphia's Riverside Correctional Facility currently houses 728 female prisoners.  I would like to create a fund at the prison commisary to provide every prisoner with one (approximately) four dollar box of tampons. 

I'm in process of working out with the prison how best to set this up, and will post updates.

If you're a woman, consider donating the cost of one extra box of tampons when you next shop for menstrual supplies.

If you're a man, consider donating the cost of two.

Thank you so much
