PERIOD POVERTY AWARENESS WEEK
May 25th - May 30th
Period Kits Quarantine Challenge
Helping your community could win you a fresh hair do, in partnership with Revolver Salon!
As you may know, Period Kits creates kits that contain a 90 day supply of period products for those experiencing homelessness, unstable housing, or extreme poverty.
We build these kits in the community with the support of our local community. Due to Covid-19 we have been unable to join together for any kit building events or for any fundraising events to sustain our programs. Don't worry, we aren’t going to let that stop us! We have found a way to still have our community involved!
Two ways you can help!
(Safely) Build your own kit complete with:
Pack of Personal Wipes
6 pairs of underwear**
Host a Fundraising Page
All you have to do is post your own fundraising page and share with your network, receive minimum of $25 (avg cost of kit)
After you build the kit, post on social media using the hashtag #PeriodKitsChallenge and tag Period Kits and 3 other friends to build kits of their own. On 6/5 we will announce a winner!
Step 1: Build Kit/host fundraiser
Step 2: Post a selfie of you with your kit and your quarantine hair/or post the selfie with link to your fundraising page using hashtags: #endperiodpoverty #periodkitschallenge #periodkits #revolversalon #quarantinehairdontcare
Step 3: Tag 3 friends in your photo and invite them to the challenge
We will pick a winner on 5/30 to celebrate our efforts to end period poverty and they will receive a $250 gift certificate to Revolver!

*We only ask that the tampons have applicators
**Be sure that underwear is “practical” and the kind one would wear on their period.
Please follow CDC guidelines while building the kit, wash your hands, wear gloves and a mask while building.
