Mother Nature's Gift
We are an organization dedicated to eliminating the stigmatization of periods by supplying students with the support and supplies they deserve.
Hygiene is important to everyone. Items like soap, water, and toilet paper are available in almost any bathroom for anyone who needs it. Menstrual supplies, however, are not easily accessible or government-mandated. Not having access to period supplies, especially within a school setting, can lead students to feel shame and disgust with their bodies.
By giving these necessary products within and outside of school, we can then create a foundation of support showing students that their community supports and cares for them.
Mother Nature's Gift wants to encourage a positive environment for growth, regardless of the uncontrollable circumstances for any individual with a period.
How Does This Happen?
We supply school nurse offices with handsewn, cloth bags containing a week's worth of period supplies for any student who requests menstrual products.
Our bags include regular pads, liners, overnight pads, and flushable wipes, with a positive note as well. The students are able to use this same bag to simply pick-up more supplies and refill monthly.

"I had to take a concept that I knew inside and out and mold it into something that would actively engage others who had never shared my experiences. I found that this skill is essential for my experiences in the real world"
