How to Run a Packing Party: Overview

Purchase tampons and pads or hold a product drive in your community.

Prepare: get bags, PERIOD stamp & stamp pad, staplers, boxes, and a meeting place. Invite people! You can use our ActionNetwork platform to make it easy and reach more people. Bring postcards and stamps to write representatives, if you’d like, or direct people to our campaign page.

Present PERIOD to your guests. Show a video (Maker’s Conference) or give them an overview of The Menstrual Movement.

Pack:  assemble the PERIOD packs!  You can also hold discussions or write postcards to representatives.

Provide:  Distribute packs to a community partner whom you’ve identified in advance who serves people experiencing homelessness or poverty.

Pass on results: Go to to tell us how many periods were served.
