We’ve heard of people wanting jewelry and toys for Christmas and “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth” but how about wanting tampons?
Seems crazy right? Well, it is CRAZY. It’s crazy that some women have to worry about how they are going to get a tampon or a maxi pad to help them during their period. Have you ever had to worry about this? Probably not. But many women and teenagers who are homeless do. They are the people at The Project Hope School:
The girl I mentor is my inspiration and driving force here. She is working with this charity and told me a heart-wrenching story about going to the center and asking them what they needed. The lady took her back to the pantry and showed her that there weren’t any toiletries for the women, and not one tampon. They have plenty of food donations but not other things. When my mentee brought a box of tampons the next time to the center, several ladies burst into tears. They were so grateful. Now she has started a drive to help get as many toiletry items as she can to the center.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Easy and inexpensively. And you can do it from your computer.
