Together we can end Period Poverty. Did you know that nearly 1 in 5 girls have missed school because they can’t afford period protection? It’s not just school they miss, they are also missing out on activities they love.
This hits home for me. I have two daughters ages 12 and 16. We have not had the misfortune of not being able to afford pads and period protection. But, what if the tables were turned and we were in need? As much as I want to help these girls, I know if we were on the other side, we would want to be helped as well.
Always Live #LikeAGirl supported by Always and Walmart, is all about helping girls stay confident. They have done that by encouraging girls to stay in sports and participate in daily activities, allowing them to persevere no matter what happens. Their mission is to tackle period poverty and boost girls’ confidence. Let’s face it, puberty can really be tough!
To help #EndPeriodPoverty, Always and Walmart are donating a year’s supply of period products to 50 teams in 50 states. Watch this inspiring video to find out more.
This touching video really impacted me as a woman and a mom. Every time I watch it, it makes me cry. Sadly, I was unaware of period poverty. These young ladies should not have to miss school and activities because of their lack of necessities.
During puberty, girls’ confidence plummets and having to miss activities because of lack of access to period products only makes this drop in their self-confidence worsen.
A simple thing like having the products they need in order to go about their daily activities will help build confidence that they would otherwise miss out on.
Please join us in spreading the word to #EndPeriodPoverty. Use your influence on social media for social good!
