The Focus of Our Efforts
PERIOD POP UP
Having limited access to sanitary products and water for washing, something as normal as having a period can be a difficult challenge.
Period Pop Ups are toiletry drive events aimed at collecting menstruation essentials to provide directly to women and girls in need.
Collect- collect donated items
Arrange- host a Period Packing Party, where volunteers come out and help go through these products and arrange them into bags to hand out
Distribute- Distribute items to women and girls in the community and abroad.
Lets Talk About Periods
Periods can be uncomfortable to talk about, even with your partner, your family, or a doctor. This is why we are excited to share #PeriodTalk . #PeriodTalk is a safe space to freely and openly talk about, you guessed it... PERIODS! Part of the stigma in society lies in the fact that periods and menstruation aren't often discussed. We want to change that. To normalize the rhetoric revolving around periods, we wanted to create a community where we (and you) can share stories, experiences ( especially those embarrassing ones...), tips, and empower women and girls to embrace their periods!

DISASTER RELIEF PERIOD BANK
Because Periods Don't Stop During Natural Disasters
During natural disasters, many people provide food, water, clothing and sometimes medicine, but one thing is often overlooked; the pressing need of securing menstrual hygiene for women and girls. The Disaster Relief Period Bank allows Free Flow to build a "bank" full of sanitary products so when disaster strikes, we are ready to provide women and girls their essential items
THE PERIOD PROJECT
One Step At A Time
Girls and women living in poverty are typically left to access tampons and pads on their own. According to a 2015 research study conducted by the Huffington Post, women spend a total of $18,171 on their periods in their lifetime. Free Flow Period Project creates an opportunity for Free Flow to partner with schools, shelters, and other organizations and directly donate sanitary products to those in need, while educating on the importance of feminine hygiene.
