We are launching our annual May fundraising campaign with the knowledge that these are trying times, and many among us are not working. To continue the important work that we do, we ask you to donate if at all possible. Periods don’t pause for pandemics, and sustainable menstrual care kits are now even more critical for young women around the world.
We will not be participating in GiveBig this year because of their associated fees. Instead, with your direct support, we will be able to use 100% of your donation on behalf of African schoolgirls.
Special gifts for May!
1/ Any donation of $100 or more earns you either a # Period t-shirt or a colorful handsewn face mask! Just put your preference in the Comments field when you donate. If you'd like a t-shirt, provide the size (S,M,L,XL,XXL).
2/ As we look toward Mother’s Day when we honor our mothers and other women in our lives, we can continue to stand together to provide dignity, health, and opportunity for thousands of future mothers. This May we are offering the opportunity to donate in the name of your mother or a special woman in your life. She’ll receive a letter acknowledging your gift donation. See details below.
We appreciate and thank you for any gift you can make!

Here’s how it works
The materials for one menstrual care kit cost $12, and you can make a donation to cover any number of kits. For each contribution, we will send you a gift letter addressed to the woman you are honoring with
your donation. (For example, with a donation of $48, your honoree will receive a letter saying that you have purchased four kits in her name.)
1. Go here to make your donation.
2. Fill out the form with your name, address, and email address.
3. Decide how many kits you would like to donate and in whose honor.
In the “Comments” box, give us the name(s) of the women you’re honoring
and the number of kits for each.
For example, you might write:
— $36 for 3 kits in Sarah Smith’s name and $36 for 3 kits in Joanna Jones’s name
— $144 for 12 kits donated in Maxine Waters’ name
4. If you are donating $100 or more, let us know if you would like us to send
you a face mask or a # Period t-shirt (designate size: S, M, L, XL, XXL).
5. Click the PayPal Giving Fund button on our website to make your donation
via credit card.
6. If you prefer, you can send us a check. Just be sure to provide the
information about the number of kits you are giving and in whose honor.
Checks should be mailed to: SLSCA, P.O. Box 18283, Seattle, WA 98118.
