Helping Women Period

Mission statement

Mission statement

Helping Women Period’s mission is to provide menstrual products to people who are homeless or have a low-income.

The work

The team was asked to help increase communications to help spread awareness and education of menstrual health.


Create videos and a social media strategy with templates, a calendar and a series of campaigns (including education, volunteerism and partnerships).

Example social media captions

  • A year’s supply of sanitary products in the United States costs more than $70.
    • Caption: In the U.K., there is a five percent tax on period products – in total, sanitary products cost over 5,000 pounds in a lifetime. (Add anything else)
  • Lack of affordability and information has led many young women to use only one tampon per day or one pad for multiple days.
    • Caption: When proper products are not available or affordable, women are often forced to use alternatives such as socks, dishrags and newspapers during their cycles.
  • Lack of menstrual hygiene can lead to very serious health risks such as Toxic Shock Syndrome.
    • Caption: Toxic Shock Syndrome is a life-threatening illness. In Bangladesh, India and many other countries, infections and cervical cancer are also results of poor hygiene.
