menstrual cups are the same' and that any cup will fit any body, and this is simply not true. You cannot be sure that a 50c cup from an online store has been made with quality materials, in an ethical way. We help guide people towards the right product for their body (menstrual cups come in different shapes and size for teens, adults, high or low cervix, prolapse, etc.) and we ensure the product given is of quality. The menstrual cups we gift are made right there in New Zealand, the period underwear come from two incredible Australian brands that support this work, and the cloth pads - well, they actually come form a range of suppliers so we can cater for different flows. Where does the product come from? MyCup NZ donate menstrual cups to The Good Fund, but everything else we buy in at wholesale. We spend anywhere form $3000 - $4000 a month on helping people access these products and all the money we use to do this, is either donated, or we have raised through our annual Fill-a-Bag fundraisers.

THE DIVINE FEMININE FEATURE

How can you help? The biggest step, is to talk about periods! Let's make them a normal part of conversation. It is only by breaking down the barriers around these topics, that people will feel comfortable to then reach out and seek help. Periods are a natural function for around half the population and we need to have open and educational conversations around them. Make the change yourself to a resuable period product! And of course you can donate to us via our website - every cent donated helps. Find out more on their website: www.thegoodfund.co.nz
