1 in 4 people with periods have missed school or work because they can’t afford the menstrual products they need. And it’s happening right here, in Philadelphia. 

No More Secrets, MBS, is a 501(c)(3) organization that's working to put an end to period poverty in Philadelphia. With just $7, you can cover the cost of period supplies for 1 cycle. Because a period shouldn't make anyone feel powerless.

What  Is Period Poverty?

Period poverty is when someone is not able to access or afford period products, like pads and tampons. When people don't have access to running water or toilets, the effects of period poverty can get worse.   

 

Living in period poverty may mean:   

Missing school, work, or
job interviews

Having to choose between buying groceries or paying bills and buying period products

Suffering from high levels of anxiety and depression

Using unhealthy alternatives
to period products

Running away from
homes/placements

Health problems such as UTIs and bacterial vaginosis from using alternative products

No one should have to use this as a pad . . .

Period .

Without period products, people use other items, such as rags, newspapers, socks, and even plastic bags. Using these items can lead to health problems, including UTIs and bacterial vaginosis (an overgrowth of bacteria). Your donation can help make sure this doesn't happen.
