Party in a Box!

Supporting PERIOD. can now be done at home with your friends and family! Through our Party in a Box fundraiser, you can host a House Party to maximize your network’s impact. Bring your friends, family, neighborhood, or coworkers together to eat, drink, and donate together to help eradicate period poverty.

What is a house party?

House parties are a quick and easy way to raise awareness and much-needed funds for PERIOD. It doesn’t even have to be in your house to be a house party! Have brunch at your favorite restaurant, a picnic at a park, or coffee in your backyard. Invite folks to attend and ask them to bring a box of tampons or pads to donate, tell them about why you care about the work PERIOD is doing in the community and why eradicating period poverty is important. PERIOD. can potentially arrange to have a chapter member or Youth Advisory Council member at your event to speak about our work.

House parties typically raise anywhere from $250-$10,000, and spread awareness about period poverty.

Where do I start?

To learn more, and decide if you would be interested in hosting a fundraiser please email Development Director Dara Wilk at dara@period.org.
