Period Promise

In recognition of International Women’s Day and the global call to action for gender parity, we have partnered with United Way Niagara to help women facing period poverty.

Nearly 1 in 4 women in Niagara struggle to buy period products for themselves or their children, but you can change that. The Period Promise initiative brings attention to the need for making period products accessible for those living in poverty. We invite you to make your Period Promise and bring a box of unopened product on March 6.
