Give A Menstrual Cup, Reusable Pads, and Period Underwear
We believe having access to menstrual products is a right, not a privilege, for all people and we’re working towards ending Period Poverty - one reusable at a time.
JuJu has partnered with Share the Dignity, an Australian charity who distribute sanitary items to those who are homeless, at-risk or experiencing domestic violence.
As an organisation, we offer annual corporate sponsorship to Share the Dignity but also realise individuals may wish to contribute in their own way. We facilitate the donation of menstrual cups, cloth pads and absorbent underwear to Share the Dignity through our site.
How to give a menstrual cup, reusable pads, and period underwear
- Select the amount you will donate
- Add the amount to your cart, then checkout
- We'll ship an assortment of period products (menstrual cups, reusable pads, period underwear) to Share The Dignity, who then passes them on to those in need.
Giving the gift of a menstrual cup, reusable pads, and period underwear will ensure that vulnerable people in our communities have access to one if they should choose to use it, eliminating the need for purchasing disposable menstrual products each month. It truly is a gift that keeps giving – every month!
Where will my menstrual cup, reusable pads, and period underwear donation go?
Your donation will be sent directly to Share the Dignity in the. Share the Dignity will then distribute your donation to people in need across Australia.
