How You Can Help Product Purchases: from our website www.themenstrualmovement.co.nz or our other website www.enhancedhealthnz.co.nz as we donate up to 20% of the profits (depending on the product) towards purchasing pads, fabric supplies, postage and running costs. Financial Donations: directly to us or via our Givealittle page: www.givealittle.co.nz/cause/ the-menstrual-movement Fabric Donations: We need donations of 100% cotton fabrics. You can purchase nice fabrics from fabric stores or perhaps you have a cupboard of quilting or sewing fabrics that you won't get around to sewing. We also need 100% brushed cotton flannel fabrics in plains or prints. You may have old flannel sheets, we can also use these for the pad inner. *While we can use most fabric prints we do need to be culturally sensitive and age appropriate. If you are looking at purchasing fabrics to send to us please contact use first and we can provide links to which fabrics/colors we are needing. Underwear: Brand new underwear is a huge help as pads can not be used without underwear. We will accept donations of unused new underwear in all sizes and preferably 100% cotton. Synthetic underwear doesn't work well with the pads. Sizes 10-14 girls and 8-18 women's are needed. Boyleg and bikini styles are best. Additional Items: Other items we need donated for our pad kits are the following items in new and unused condition: Sunlight soap, Personal

THE DIVINE FEMININE FEATURE

soap, Soap cases (needed for our kits for Africa, Fiji and Nepal), Flannel wash cloths, Deodorant, Lip Balm. * We are a sustainable eco conscious business and are trying to encourage plastic free options and where possible and would like to try and make our kits with eco conscious products. However we have a huge demand and will still accept any donations of the above products. Volunteer: No matter where you are in NZ you can sew pads and send to us to distribute. To find out more about our volunteer program check out our details here. Make sure you fill out our sign up form on the volunteer page so we can get in touch. Puchase a Pad Pack or Donate: Are you time poor but would still like to help? You can make a donation via our donate now tab for any amount you might like or you can choose to buy a pad kit which will provide one person enough menstrual products to last them at least 3 years. You will be able to choose from the current projects we are supporting and select where you would like the period kit to be donated too. Share The Love: Share, share and share!! if you know of a school, organization or community group that are in need of pads please let them know. Get your friends and family on board and join our volunteer program. Spread awareness that period poverty exists not only in third world countries but in NZ too. Together we can make a difference!
