This past Friday we teamed up with Gallery Café, in Wicker Park for their monthly artist show. We got to meet a bunch of really cool people, and was given a big opportunity to gain more exposure! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. So many men and women were so interested in our cause and more than willing to help.
Some of our amazing supporters came out and dropped off their donations to us, and had a drink. We talked about the cause, and got a chance to really educate a lot of people on what we are trying to achieve. We will be having another event coming up, November 11.2016! Save the date & Look out for invite.

It is no secret that being born a woman you have this organ called a uterus and it bleeds every month. This is NOT a luxury for women. This is NOT something women ASK to go through every month. For many homeless women, choosing between being clean and having items like pads/tampons/liners/cups often over rides eating for the day, or a few days, or however long it might be for your next meal. Not only do these women go hungry for the day, but they also face public embarrassment due to having to wear bloodied clothing from not having sanitary products easily accessible to them and having to do things like make makeshift tampons out of clothing, which could lead to a multitude of health issues.
As many of us ladies know, pads/tampons/liners/sanitary wipes are NOT CHEAP. One single box of tampons can cost you as little as 4 dollars or as much as 15 dollars. How many times have you put back an item at the store to be able to get that box of tampons for the month?
