Got a tampon? Menstrual supplies drive comes to Capitol Hill

unnamedA new Seattle nonprofit that collects menstrual supplies for those in need is now accepting donations at Babeland on E Pike.

All Cycles collects tampons, pads, and underwear of all sizes and distributes supplies through community organizations. Donations from the group’s current drive, which ends February 20th, will be handed out at the Capitol Hill youth shelter Peace For The Streets By Kids From The Streets.

All Cycles began when Seattle designer Liz Andrade reached out to friends and family to raise awareness about the lack of menstrual supplies within the homeless LGBTQ community. Jes Olson and Hannah Stover immediately got in touch and the three developed All Cycles.

“Our first drive was more successful than we anticipated, and it’s just been awesome since then,” Stover said.

There are five other locations around the city for accepting donation to All Cycles.

One thought on “Got a tampon? Menstrual supplies drive comes to Capitol Hill

  1. A homeless girl I once knew told me that when she was panhandling she would ask for money to buy tampons, because sometimes you’d get money, which was the goal, but then often you would also get tampons, of which you can’t have too many.
