What Have We Done?

It's a Girl Thing started with our very first event in August of 2018. We had a small barbecue, where about 20 of our close friends and family came to support us. We asked each of them to bring a box of tampons or pads as well as a gently used purse to be donated to a small women's shelter located in Toronto. 


Since then, we've hosted quite a few social events, mostly at bars and restaurants or  friends houses and have managed to raise over 600 boxes of menstrual products and over 300 other hygiene essentials from August 2018 to December 2019. 


We donate to  5 organizations consistently which can we found on our "Who We Support" page, although we do enjoy partnering with any organization that reaches out to us for help! For example, we participated in the "Got Your Back Toronto" event, which was a drive to collect a variety of products and essential items for women who are homeless in Toronto. We also partnered with the Public Management Association at the University of Guelph campus to raise funds and products for a women's shelter in Guelph. 


We are so grateful for the love and support you all have given us in our first few years, and we are looking forward to future fundraisers and events that will support people struggling with period poverty.


Everyone deserves and safe and healthy period!
