Mini Drives

The Period Purse was built from the grassroots up by small groups of passionate individuals. Want to do a mini drive with your colleagues, friends, or book club? Help out financially or with in-kind donations. Each $15 supports one person who menstruates-donate via our online fundraiser. Or collect period products and have one of your team members drop it off at our storage unit in Etobicoke or your closest food bank.

Fill out our mini drive game plan to get started!
