A few years ago, I saw a video about homeless women and their periods that touched me deeply and moved me to action. In the documentary, various homeless women speak about how difficult it is for them to get the various hygiene products that they need. Many of the ladies talk about having to decide between getting a meal and getting the supplies they need. Take a look at the video for yourself.
After watching this doc and hearing these stories, we were moved to action. We launched our first #POSITIVEPERIOD campaign in 2016, and we are pleased to announce our commitment to this initiative.
For National Women's Month, March 1st through the 31st, we will be asking for donations of feminine hygiene products for the #POSITIVEPERIOD campaign. All items collected during the campaign will be given to women in Detroit who are homeless, in shelters, or otherwise in crisis. Items such as tampons, maxi pads, pantyliners, baby wipes, feminine wipes and body spray are recommended, but toothpaste, deodorant, and all other hygiene products will be accepted. We are also in need of gallon and quart sized Ziplock Bags.
Included with each kit of products we will include a Little Bit Card to uplift each spirit and soothe each soul who receives a bag. That's The Little Bit way!
In 2016, we distributed 150 bags. In 2017, distributed 300 bags! This year we are aiming even higher!
