We have launched a program for at-risk teens and women called Hannah's Project to help these women maintain dignity during their periods and have access to the products they need.
We sensitize the public to the dire need of the lack of feminine hygiene products by shelters, soup kitchens and pantries. It is the # 1 item after food we are asked for across North America. The solution could be as simple as asking every woman to buy one extra box each month and donate it.
This effort spotlights the needs of anti-poverty agencies across North America. These products, unfortunately, are not covered by food stamps - SNAP (Supplemental Assistance Program). We are also working to remove the tax on these basic items.
