There are some things you just take for granted...



A company called Seventh Generation, who manufactures safe and environmentally responsible household products, has a program called TamPontification.

Per their site:

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. You and I may take our monthly trips down the feminine care aisle for granted, but, for women in shelters, a box of tampons is five dollars they can’t spare. Here’s some good news: you can help us contribute to rectifying 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.

So swing by their site, if this is a cause you think is worth supporting, and make your donation.

This is a great cause and a great idea. I often donate all kinds of toiletries, but not tampons, and they are definitely a necessity.

Very cool- thanks for sharing! I just did it, and will spread the word as well.
