"None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful." – Mother Teresa
Love is what moves us forward. Acceptance is what brings us together. Half of the world’s population menstruates yet for decades this topic has been muzzled. Slowly, but surely, the once taboo topic of menstruation is becoming more and more of the norm. When conversation begins, so does innovation. There are dozens of companies like ours that are doing great work normalizing the period. With love and acceptance as our foundation, collaboration is the easy part. Here are a few of the great organizations we have had the pleasure of working with:
“Be Prepared Period is on a mission to create a safe and fun environment for women to have an open conversation around the topic of menstruation. A few years ago, as my tween daughter approached puberty, it was important to me that she learn about her changing body in an empowering way. I looked everywhere for resources that would help her celebrate this time, but my search came up empty-handed. From this search, Be Prepared Period was born, and it has grown into a well-rounded resource for ladies around the world. Combining my desire to help others and my passion for living a more natural, healthier life, I set out to grow Be Prepared Period to be a resource that helped ladies throughout their menstrual journey, from puberty through menopause. Our site has expanded to include a constant flow of new information and resources, a PeriodTalk forum to empower women to find answers and support, an online shop featuring organic and reusable period products and kits, monthly subscriptions, online educational courses, and more. And most importantly, we are working to spread the word, so that ALL girls and ALL parents can benefit from the truth about menstruation.”
Period Packs™ delivers uniquely-designed first-period kit gift boxes filled with both fun and functional items to “welcome young ladies to womanhood.” Currently recognized as the most robust first-period kit available, Period Packs are delivered not as a monthly subscription, but instead, as an individual, first-time gift. The company’s line of period kits includes disposable, organic and reusable options so that each young lady can enjoy a period kit that suits her particular taste. Period Packs can be given by mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, sisters or friends, and are always a welcome surprise when they unexpectedly arrive on a young lady’s doorstep. The company believes through its gift box series, it will impart a level of comfort and excitement to young ladies around the globe, while providing a catalyst for open dialogue on the topic of puberty and menstruation, turning what has historically been a taboo subject, into something more educational and celebratory. Rather than dread or fear menses, let’s seek to make all periods, positive!
