What is a Mini Drive?

A Mini Drive is essentially a smaller version of what we do at TPP - you will collect period products or run an online fundraiser with your friends and colleagues. Every $15 will purchase a one month supply of period products for those impacted by period poverty.

We want your Mini Drive to be as successful and easy as possible. We have created a handbook for people who want to run a mini-drive. This includes detailed instructions, tips, checklists, and links.

The Period Purse Mini Drive

Four important things about Mini Drives

A Mini Drive means you will collect period products within your community and/or run an online team fundraiser.

Fill out our Mini Drive Game Plan (please be sure to click SUBMIT at the very bottom of the page once complete). We’ll then send you the handbook so you can get started.

You and your team are responsible for delivering your products to a our storage unit in Etobicoke or a food bank near you. 

Tell us your final collect numbers & celebrate your team’s success, tag us @theperiodpurse
