The Monthly

themonthlyFamilies who receive our diapers tell us they have gone without buying menstrual hygiene products in order to purchase food for their kids or other basic needs. What does that mean? It means using toilet paper, fast food napkins, paper towels from public restrooms, or using the same tampon for too long. We can do better than this. Period.  Want to know more about this issue? We’ve got a whole page just for you!

Here’s Where YOU Come In:

We know that this is something we can tackle together and we know you want to help.  We’ve got four ways to dive in:

Monthly Maven

Monthly Leader

  • Invite a group of girlfriends out or over – for drinks, a playdate, coffee, book club, wine club, gardening club, any club, shopping, museuming, for a walk/run, whatever – doesn’t matter what you do, just invite women you care about and like. Or just add The Monthly to a group you already meet with monthly!

  • Ask each person to bring a box of tampons or pads (NOTE: pads are in higher demand than tampons) for a woman who needs them.

  • Commit to meeting with this wonderful group once a month (or on a schedule that works for you – every woman’s Monthly is different)

  • Donate the extra products off at one of our 100+ drop locations across the region.

  • You’re helping women in need and hanging out with good friends!

Host a Drive for The Monthly

  • Collecting donations on a larger scale is a great way to spread the word about the need for period products

  • You can make your drive your own – host it at your office, school, gym; make it a competition to see how many products people can donate; tack your drive onto another event like a party or awareness week. We encourage creativity!

  • Once you decide you want to host a drive, we can help you get off on the right foot with a toolkit!

Monthly Supporter 

  • Purchase period products for a woman in need each month through our monthly giving program.  $15 a month allows us to support three women.

  • Donating dollars allows us to get items at a discount through wholesalers and ensures we can stock the items most requested.  Head over to our Donate page and subscribe to Monthly giving at the $15, $30, 0r $45 level or select another amount and simply check the box to make your donation monthly.
