Make your Period Promise

Periods are a fact of life and so is the need for menstrual products.
Sadly, too many people can’t afford them. But you can change that.

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

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 hygiene 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. 

The project is funded by a $20,250 gender-equality grant from the Red Deer District Community Foundation and all additional costs funded by United Way Central AlbertaProduct sponsorships have also been granted by HOSPECO’s Period Partner and Procter & Gamble, makers of Always and Tampax.  Always has championed girls’ confidence for over 35+ years and is committed to help #EndPeriodPoverty to ensure that lack of access to menstrual products doesn’t hold young people back. 

The Fund for Gender Equality is supported by a collaboration between Community Foundations of Canada and the Equality Fund, with support from the Government of Canada.
