The Period Purse is a volunteer-run non-profit organization that strives to achieve menstrual equity by providing menstruators experiencing homelessness access to free menstrual products, and to reduce the stigma surrounding periods through public education and advocacy. The organization launched in February 2017 with the goal of making one purse.  Today, The Period Purse has handed out over 8,700 purses and over 7,800 refill period packs, each containing period products, comforting items and a motivational note. The Period Purse seeks to provide individuals experiencing homelessness with a much-needed emotional boost. For more information, visit:
