I feel very strong about providing support to other women. We can do this every day with small acts of kindness: helping mothers, elderly women and those in need carry their groceries since I am usually only buying one or two bags for myself and always have extra hands, being a listening ear to a friend in need, or even a smile on the street to brighten someone's day. But it's also important to remember the women who are struggling to make ends meet. 

A childhood friend of mine, who is a middle school teacher at a Title 1 (aka low income) school, told me once that she was having to purchase pads every weekend to keep up with the demand in her classroom. The majority of her students were not provided with them by their families and were essentially fending for themselves when it came to their periods.

This is why I absolutely jumped at the chance to join the Kotex U #PowertothePeriod campaign to bring awareness to community donations of period products to homeless shelters and women in need. If you can, take the time to grab a few extra boxes this month and drop them by a local shelter. Visit here to find out more information on where and how you can help. 

As women, we make up over 50% of the world's population. Know that if there is anything that is true, as another woman, I have your back. I wish you the best and I want you to succeed. Offer a helping hand to a woman in need.
