This blog post is sponsored by the brand: Always, however, I am truly passionate about bringing awareness to this reality.
One of these is not a pad, but it’s all some girls have. #AD The reality is that there are girls everywhere who have to use toilet paper instead of adequate period protection, which is why I’m passionate about partnering with Always to help #EndPeriodPoverty
Nearly 1 in 5 girls in the U.S. have either left school early or missed school entirely because of a lack of access to period products.
In honor of back-to-school season, you can join in to help during the month of September. For every like or comment on this post, Always will donate an additional pad to a girl in need, via their Local Period Heroes’ organizations, up to a total donation of 1 million period products. You can also pick up a pack of Always at participating retailers to spark a pad donation to Feeding America. I got my pads at my neighborhood Walgreens, but you can check the link in my bio for the full list of retailers. Join the conversation on social by tagging @always_brand and using #EndPeriodPoverty to continue to raise awareness.
As a woman, these statistics break my heart. My wish is for every single girl to feel comfortable in her own skin and have the necessary period products to ensure she never has to miss school.
