Menstrual Cups

Do you accept donations of menstrual cups?

Yes, please!

Why don't you just hand out menstrual cups, it's better for the environment and it's a sustainable solution?

We love menstrual cups, and we love getting them as donations. We do have a cup program where we work with certain shelters in Toronto. Menstrual cups need to come around education, and also, they are not for everyone. We are working towards getting more and more menstruators using a cup every month. To donate $40 towards the cost of a cup, please donate HERE.
