Help us end period poverty by supporting women in your community
Did you know that 1/3 of Canadians under the age of 25 who menstruate struggle to buy enough hygiene products every month? Period poverty is when people are unable to access or afford essential menstrual hygiene products. In celebration of Women's Day, SPUD is teaming up with various local organizations to help people who menstruate get access to tampon, pads, and cups!
This campaign aims to support all people who menstruate and defines women as anyone who identifies as one!

Who Are We Donating To
No Woman Without. Period
For the third year running, SPUD is working with No Woman Without. Period. This Edmonton-based organization was founded in 2017 when someone on the street asked NWW's founder, Scarlet Bjornson, for money. When Scarlet asked her what she planned to spend the money on, the woman replied, "Well truthfully ma'am, I would like to buy some booze, but I need to buy some tampons." This statement changed Scarlet's life forever and she began her journey to end period poverty in her community.

The Period Project
The Period Project was created by Humainologie to address menstrual inequity and period poverty in Calgary. The Period Project is gender inclusive and community led. Their goal is to come together to help women, trans, and non-binary Calgarians who menstruate access the essentials they need.

BC Housing's "This is me...Period" project started in 2018 in partnership with non-profit partners. Although they are unable to run their project as usual this year, due to concerns related to the pandemic, they are committed to still working alongside local organizations to collect and distribute menstrual hygiene products to those in need throughout British Columbia.
