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 Alberta. Product 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.
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.
