Pad It Forward Program

How can I help?

Support those experiencing period poverty in Australian communities who need it for as little as $7 per month.

Period Poverty is a prevalent issue in Australian communities. At risk groups include people experiencing homelessness, Indigenous communities, school children, people experiencing poverty, and people fleeing domestic violence, among others. We know that periods are preventing young people from going to school, and are a major disturbance in life for other people in Australia.

The "Pad It Forward Program" allows you to purchase period products on behalf of someone else, for as little as $7 per month. These products are collected and distributed by TABOO to our charity partners all year round. These partners support people who are at risk of period poverty.

We celebrate the diversity of culture in Australia and appreciate that each of our partners deliver culturally suitable educational programs, alongside the distribution of period products where appropriate. Menstruation is a sacred practice which is celebrated in different ways by different people!
