Our Mission

We’ve all said it: “Periods are the worst.” To many of us ‘the worst’ means having painful cramps and not making it to barre class, for others it means giving up a meal or their dignity just to get access to basic menstruation products. This platform aims to make things right.

our goal

To bridge the social gap between people who bleed, connecting those who can afford menstrual products to those who need help to access them.

 
 
 

Our Solution

Perigives has created foldable posters with pockets, that enable people to give and receive menstruation products without barriers. These posters are distributed in female public restrooms and are accessible online to anyone who wants to help.

I came across this display in the Amtrack bathroom yesterday. Can’t wait to get a hold of those posters and hopefully put them around our campus!

Where [else] are you testing? I’d love to drop off if I can. I had a few friends respond positively to this entire concept! Thank you for the work that you do, it’s so important and I’m appreciative to help anyway I can.
