Providing  

anyone in need with menstrual health products

People in communities all across the United States are missing school and work because they simply can’t afford basic necessities to manage their periods. Pads, tampons, and menstrual cups are not covered by subsidy programs (like SNAP) and some families are forced to choose other critical purchases or cut back on these items that help maintain health.

At Girls Helping Girls Period.

We believe menstrual health is a matter of basic health. And human dignity. We’re dedicated to educating people on the need, and collecting/distributing products. 

We give many of our clients a full year’s supply of products.

It’s so simple to help.

Wrong Answer. Try Again.

Wrong Answer. Try Again.

Recently I asked a school nurse, "Why are pads and tampons kept in your office, and not the bathrooms, where they are needed?" The answer won't surprise you, and I'll bet it's the same answer most of you would get if you walked into a local school. Still the response...

Is Your Period Sustainable?

It is hard to overstate just how big an impact our periods are having on the planet. In the last decade or so, there is a mountain of evidence that has piled up regarding menstrual products' effects on the environment and if we're being honest, we have to take some of...

p.s. Seeing Red in Reading

During the begining of the school year, mid September, I was at school. I'd had my period for about three months. I had thought my period had ended the night before. I was in Reading when I felt a drip. "Can't be anything," I thought. By the time Reading was over, I...

NJ, “Enough is Enough”

NJ, “Enough is Enough”

In June of 2021, a Joint Resolution in the New Jersey Legislature established the last week of May as "Period Poverty Awareness Week." The resolution acknowledges that poverty exists in NJ, that many do not have adequate access to menstrual products, education or...

We’re FIVE!

We’re FIVE!

It’s been half a decade since GHGP has called itself an official non-profit organization. And actually, it’s really hard to put that number into perspective. Most days we feel like we’ve been talking forever about period poverty, the tampon tax and the absurdity that...

Menstrual Math Lesson

Menstrual Math Lesson

Ok, class. It’s the beginning of October. Enough goofing off, time for a math lesson. The vast majority of schools (middle, high and college) do not provide menstrual products free to students in the bathrooms (where they are needed). At best, those schools have an...
