Nothing is worse than #HomelessPeriod

Imagine yourself in the mid of periods and not having sanitary pads. Terrible, right? Now think of those thousands of homeless women who go through this every month.
Mclaren Behrendt tells HuffPost – “We are designing packs with tampons, pads, panty liners, sanitary wipes, and a little extra TLC (candies, mouthwash, lotion) basically anything we can find/afford that we think could be useful.”
Sidney Hood tells – “The problem is that periods are still so taboo which makes it hard to get people really imagine what these women are forced to experience every month. Our goal is to alleviate some of the discomfort that comes along with your period and help women feel more comfortable by giving them a convenient package that will allow them to properly care for themselves during ‘that time of the month.'”
Go..go…go, women! It is a wonderful initiative!
