Have a Maxi-Pad Party and Be a Contribution to Others

Have a Maxi-Pad Party and Be a Contribution to Others | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

From a FB friend who would like to remain anonymous.

My friend Nick invited me to a "maxi-pad party" over the holidays. The admission was package(s) of feminine hygiene products to be donated to a local women's center. To his amazement, he received nearly 10,000 donations, enough for a two year supply for his designated shelter. I hope this wonderful concept takes wings. I thought Nick's story was a great pantyliner for pant suit nation.. 

J'nene Solidarity Kay's insight:

Combine fun and support for others by "charging" admission. This was for a women's shelter. Yours could be a homeless camp. Toothbrush/Toothpaste Party?
