Why we’re here
A tampon is a small thing that can make a huge difference.
Period poverty is when someone does not have access to pads, tampons or other period supplies. This issue is a problem for menstruators around the world but also right here in our community.
Request menstrual supplies
Do you need pads or tampons for your clients or classroom? Fill out our request form and we will schedule a delivery.
Here are other ways you can help
talk about period poverty with friends and family to raise awareness
donate menstrual products to local aid organizations
end period shame by talking openly about your experiences with menstruation
advocate for free period supplies in the bathroom at your work or school
Paper products are available at no cost in bathrooms, why not tampons and pads?
We want Oklahoma government and schools to provide essential hygiene products.
