The Pad Project.
A period should end a sentence, not a girl’s education.®
The Pad Project is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to create and cultivate local and global partnerships to end period stigma and to empower women and all menstruators worldwide. The organization began as a documentary project led by students and educators convinced that menstruation matters for everyone. They created the documentary short, Period. End of Sentence., winner of the Academy Award in 2019, which launched the project into the fully-fledged organization it is today.
Their goal is to achieve menstrual equity by combining pad machines with community partnerships, sexual and reproductive health education, and domestic advocacy work.
Aunt Flow is the most efficient solution to provide menstrual products for free to employees, students, and guests.
They are on a mission to ensure EVERYONE has access to quality menstrual products. For every 10 tampons and pads they sell, they donate 1 to a menstruator in need. This is people helping people. PERIOD.®

Read recent recognition of our IMPACT…
“The pandemic has only increased the financial and emotional strain on the families we serve. While many have lost their jobs, others are essential workers afraid of getting the virus and not being able to work. The reality of the situation and the stress about what the future might hold has made things feel very overwhelming. Receiving these bags of sanitary supplies has eliminated a huge burden. The supplies are expensive and, because of that, sometimes people have had to go without.
Because these bags are a gift, they free up money for other things like food and medicine. The free bags also remind the recipients that there are good and generous people in the world. The distribution of the bags is such an act of kindness that they provide so much more than the products. They provide hope and our families and we are deeply grateful.”

“COMPASS’ work with in-risk youth helps to create conditions for their success and the Dignity Packs are an integral part of the services we provide. Economic hardships are barriers that keep our youth from accessing basic feminine hygiene necessities. The Dignity Packs help to bolster our youth’s self-confidence at school, in professional settings, and allows participation in our programs. Active and confident participation in our program provides them with the critical support and guidance to be successful in education, employment and life. We thank you for the impact you have made on the community we serve.”
