Introducing The Collective

The Collective: a group of generous people who believe that everyone should have a healthy period. 

$15 is all that it takes to bring someone a healthy period. $15 is a couple of lattes. One fast food lunch. A bottle of wine. Giving up one of these treats provides one person with the period products they need to handle their period every month so they don't have to resort to toilet paper and rags that leak and cause infection.

$15 a month is all it takes. We have an ambitious goal of providing 200 menstruators with the period supplies they need every month. Will you help us reach this goal?

When you Join The Collective you’ll receive exclusive content as part of your commitment to The Period Purse and each month, you will know that you are raising the quality of life for one person.

We thank the 116 monthly donors we have and as S.R. says, “I like the comradery of knowing someone else is going through having a period with me, and that their experience is improved by access to supplies and mine is improved by knowing I'm not alone.”

P.S. We’re having a private The Collective virtual event on Sat. Nov. 6th, will you join us?
