P&G honors Menstrual Hygiene Day global initiative with donation

By Antoinette Alexander - 05/23/2018
CINCINNATI — In honor of the upcoming Menstrual Hygiene Day, Procter & Gamble’s feminine protection brand Always is donating an additional one million period products to confront period poverty across the United States.

Through an ongoing partnership with hunger-relief organization Feeding America, Always aims to provide greater access to period supplies for girls and women in need. In the past 10 years alone, the brand has donated more than 80 million pads to girls who need them most.

Menstrual Hygiene Day, which takes place on May 28, is a global initiative launched in 2014 by P&G’s partner Wash United, which aims to raise awareness around the challenges women and girls face during their menstrual cycles.

“Lack of access to period products is a problem not just in developing countries, but also here in the U.S.,” said Jennifer Davis, vice president, North America Feminine Care and Global Tampax, Procter & Gamble. “This donation is just part of our ongoing mission and commitment to help empower girls and women everywhere with access to the products they need to manage their periods so they can focus on reaching their full potential.”
