Period Promise

Many at-risk people can’t afford menstrual products. You can help.

Nearly 1 in 4 Canadian people that menstruate say they have struggled to afford menstrual products for themselves or their children.

Ways to Participate

  • Run a Period Promise Campaign

    The period promise campaign by United Way is another easy way to help everybody live with the dignity that we all deserve by getting menstrual products to people who need them. Run a workplace campaign to collect tampons, pads, and other menstrual products to support vulnerable people in our communities. We’ve made it easy with our marketing and communications material to run your own Period Promise Campaign.

Period Promise School and Municipal Pilots

Providing barrier-free access to menstrual products for all people.

Local response to a global issue

The Period Promise Pilot Project by United Way and the Soroptimist International Central Alberta is a local response to a global issue. We can reduce the isolation created by period poverty, in our own neighbourhoods.

More than a product drive

Our mission is to provide barrier-free access to menstrual products for all humans. To destigmatize menstruation and work towards helping more people get access to the products they count on with the dignity they deserve.
