TamPontification

Seventh Generation, makers of environmentally friendly everything, have launched a new internet campaign to donate feminine care products to shelters across the country. In the spirit of The Hunger Site, all you have to do to make a donation is to visit this website and drag the little heart into the little house. Here's the schpeil from their Facebook group:
Women’s shelters in the U.S. go through thousands of tampons and pads monthly, and, while agencies generally assist with everyday necessities such as toilet paper, diapers, and clothing, this most basic need is often overlooked- women hygiene.

You can help contribute to rectify this situation by making a VIRTUAL donation below!
For each VIRTUAL donation, Seventh Generation will send a pack of organic cotton tampons or chlorine-free pads to a shelter in your state.


Bear in mind that you can list any state you want as the recipient, it doesn't have to be the state you live in. Women in Kentucky need pads too.

Even though we're not a shelter, we give out tampons and pads and diapers and depends whenever we have them at the Survival Center (www.theNSC.org). People are always SO GRATEFUL for them. I've had women tell me they were down to their last dollars and using toilet paper. So folks, if you switch to the Keeper/Diva Cup or something similar, don't throw out those old tampons! Donate them!
