THE AVERAGE WOMAN WILL SPEND THOUSANDS DEALING WITH THE EFFECTS OF HER MENSTRUAL CYCLE... KEY WORDS ARE AVERAGE AND THOUSANDS. IMAGINE WHAT OUR VULNERABLE FEMALE POPULATION HAS TO DEAL WITH.

The Start of No Woman Without

One evening a homeless woman asked me for change. I asked her what she was going to spend the money on, in no way at all did she have to tell me, the money was hers regardless. She said, well truthfully ma’am I would like to buy some booze but I need to buy some tampons. That hit me in the face like a brick. I went to my car grabbed my emergency stash of tampons from the car and gave them to her and told her to enjoy her drink. who am I to judge? That’s what I would likely spend my money on…

And it hit me. Listen, I am not in the best financial position BUT I can go and buy tampons when I need them. I thought about it all night. How a homeless woman would need to have money for laundry and extra change of clothes….

September 21st, took to Facebook about last night’s experience and expressed interest in organizing a Tampon Drive. This post totally blew up and here we are.

There are women leaving such a bad situation they can’t even think to grab shoes let alone tampons.

This is a totally natural event and we do not ask for it. The average woman will spend THOUSANDS dealing with the effects of her Menstrual cycle. Imagine what our vulnerable female population has to deal with. Plus add have teenage daughters in the house. Expenses double!
