What to Donate

Time for a "break"

First off, let us say thank you for coming to our site and looking to get involved. We cannot do what we do without people like you!

The Period Purse will be closed for donations from July 1st, 2018 to September 14, 2018. 

While we would love to be able to accept donations throughout the year, we are all volunteers with families, full-time jobs and in some cases little ones who are home for the summer. We want to put our best selves forward both for The Period Purse and for our families, so a little break is in order.

We hope you enjoy your summer and also hope that you stockpile your donations  - come September we will be ready for you!

If you would like to donate financially, please visit our donation page HERE.
