5 million period products donated – thanks to you!

This post is sponsored by U by Kotex but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

A few weeks back, I shared a very important campaign with you guys – The Alliance for Period Supplies. This new national organization (founded in May 2018) helps ensure that women in need have access to essential period products required to participate fully in daily life — and you guys are making it happen by shopping for u by Kotex products at Walmart!!

So, thank you!

Because of you, women in need of period supplies but cannot afford them are being helped! In just the month of October, U by Kotex donated 5 Million period products to women in need. Also, Walmart made a donation of $25K to the Alliance of Period Supplies to further the efforts. Isn’t that incredible?

Do you have a story from when you needed period supplies but couldn’t get them? As a woman, I know it is definitely one of the worst feelings – panic, vulnerability… Period supplies are not an optional thing! I remember one time when we were camping far into the woods, no Walmart within hundreds of miles, and my period came early. I hadn’t thought to pack pads or tampons, so I just SOL in the middle of bear country. I’ll tell ya, it ain’t fun trying to make your own period supplies out of 1-ply port-o-potty toilet paper!


I am so thankful to never again have to be without the supplies I need – and through the Alliance for Period Supplies, many more women will feel that comfort as well. As a thank you for participating in the program, you are being rewarded with savings! Who loves saving with the Ibotta app? Well right now you can save $1 off U by Kotex products at Walmart – learn more here!
