#progress Thanks to all of the friends and supporters who shared this amazing news with us! Making #periods part of the conversation is making a difference. We cannot address it if we don’t talk about it. Happy Thanksgiving

KUDOS to Scotland!

Hi All - We need additional help to meet local need for menstrual hygiene products. With new partners requesting supplies, we estimate we now need $5,000-$6,000 worth of products each quarter.

* If you are back-to-school shopping and can pick up a box or two for us...GREAT. (Thank you Frugal in Virginia for your donations this AM!)

* If you can ship a few from Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc...PERFECT.

*If you can contribute $10, $20, $50 thru Facebook or PayPal...WE WILL DO THE SHOPPING.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

Today we made our quarterly delivery to @WelborneCommunityFoodPantry. And then we visited the Lee monument site.

As a white woman, I recognize that my white privilege has afforded me many opportunities and unearned respect throughout my life. When my daughter said to me this morning, "I am surprised it has taken this long to take down these statues," I felt so ashamed. I can do more. We can do more. This is on us. #blacklivesmatter

The Period Patch is fully committed to providing support wherever and whenever it is needed.

PERIODS don't stop for pandemics. The Period Patch continues to provide products. Grateful to Hannah and Olivia Shaw for continuing to support the Period Patch, year after year through donations drives. This generosity will be put to immediate use as we support Family Lifeline and CARITAS (via St. Mary's Goochland) in their service of menstruating humans.

“Having a period already causes me a lot of [gender] dysphoria, but this dysphoria becomes heightened when I have to shop for a product that is labeled as ‘women’s health’ and in most cases, is pretty and pink,” Jones explained.
