But access to necessary menstrual products can be challenging. And COVID has made it even more difficult.

You can help change that.


Making accessing products easier for everybody

Period poverty is much more common in our community than you would think. Half of all people who menstruate say that they have struggled to purchase products for themselves at some time in their life, and more than a quarter have gone through a period without having any products to support them.

United Way’s Period Promise campaign is committed to changing that and makes it easy for everybody to help out. You can organize a Period Promise campaign to collect donations in your community – in your school, in your workplace or union, or even a socially distanced drop-off with your neighbours.

It’s easy to make a difference

In 2021 we hope you’ll help us set a new record so that we can distribute more product than ever to community organizations in our area. To make that possible, we’ll need to collect more than 500,000 menstrual products – or their equivalent in financial donations. It’s not going to be easy, but we’re making it safe and easy to get involved.

The easiest way to have an impact is to donate directly to the Period Promise campaign. You can do that by making a financial through this website, or by getting connected to a product collection campaign. If you want to go one step further, you can run a product collection or financial donation campaign with your family, friends, or coworkers!


Register today to get access to a free toolkit containing all the bits and pieces you need to run a donation campaign in support of United Way’s Period Promise. We’ll also add you onto our mailing list so that you can stay up to date on the campaign efforts, special events, and how to what kind of advances we are making in the policy.
