My true calling – besides being a mom and wife – is acts of service. You will often find me volunteering at my boy’s school several days a week, either helping in the classroom or reading to below level students, in addition to any other help that’s needed. So when Kotex® reached out about their Alliance for Period Supplies to help women in need, I did not hesitate to say yes!
The number of women struggling to purchase period supplies is startling, and it’s often a supply that’s overlooked when people think of donating. So today, I’m encouraging all of you to help, and I promise it’s really simple!

Help Women in Need with the U by Kotex® Supply Drive!
Did you know 1 in 4 women have struggled to purchase period supplies products in the past year due to lack of income? I had NO idea. U by Kotex® is proud to be the founding sponsor of The Alliance for Period Supplies. This new national organization helps to ensure that individuals in need have access to essential period products required to participate fully in daily life.
So how can you help women in need?
It’s simple. Head to your nearest Walmart store now through the month of October, and purchase a U by Kotex® product (or purchase them online). For every (1) U by Kotex® product purchased (2) U by Kotex® pads or liners will be donated – up to 5 million products! Yes – you read that right – 5 million! Just think of how many women can be helped! And all you have to do is buy products for your own use, and the rest is done for you! Find out more about this amazing initiative here.
Be a part of the movement! Buy to Give.
In addition to product donations, Walmart will be donating $25,000 to the Alliance for Period Supplies organization. Isn’t that amazing? If we all do our part, we can make a huge difference and help women in need.
I LOVE companies that #giveback don’t you? For every one U by Kotex® product purchased in store or online at Walmart, @ubykotex is donating TWO products to someone in need! Learn more ——> https://t.co/udPGKkcs1J #WithUSheCan #UbKAndWalmart #ad pic.twitter.com/oyuv6VoJRH
