A couple of lattes. One fast food lunch. A bottle of wine. Just one of these is all you'd have to give up in order to provide one person experiencing homelessness with the supplies 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.
The women featured below are real women living on the streets of Toronto. They generously and candidly participated in this project to give us a firsthand account of what menstruation is like when you don't have the means to purchase sanitary products.
They represent thousands of menstruaters currently experiencing homelessness that need our support. So please choose the story that resonates most with you and donate generously, through monthly installments of $12.
