Event description

Description

May 28, 2019 is Menstrual Hygiene Day, an initiative that highlights the importance of positive, healthy and equitable period experiences for all. The Period Purse will commemorate Menstrual Hygiene Day with the inaugural Fundraiser. Period. event in downtown Toronto.


In the morning of May 28, Mayor John Tory will proclaim the city’s second Menstrual Hygiene Day. In the evening, following this historic announcement, the community will unite at Fundraiser. Period. We will rally together to support marginalized menstruators across Ontario and reduce the stigma surrounding periods. All event proceeds will support The Period Purse’s mission and vision.


Fundraiser. Period. will include:

  • One free drink ticket per guest*, with food available for purchase

  • An opportunity to have your portrait taken, care of Ranna Asha Photography

  • A stand-up performed by Natalie Norman, Toronto comedian and host of The Crimson Wave podcast

  • A silent auction with must-have items

  • An on-site marketplace with jewellery, tea and period-positivity swag

  • And more!


* After one free non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage, guests will be responsible for further drink purchases. No alcohol will be sold to persons under the age of 19. Please drink responsibly.


We support a menstruator for only $12 a month!

1 entrance ticket - $48 = 4 months support

OR

1 entrance ticket PLUS portrait picture - $84 = 7 months of support
