HERE’S HOW WE DO IT . . . ONE PIXIE PACKAGE AT A TIME!
THE PERIOD PROBLEM
When it comes to periods, Project Pixie believes that giving a little changes a lot and that something as simple as a clean period can provide women and girls with a much needed sense of well-being.
Project Pixie works to provide an adequate and reliable supply of feminine care products to homeless and low-income women and girls - focusing primarily on Union County, NJ and the Greater Philadelphia Area. Access to these products not only provide health and happiness to women in need, but they are also a resource to the partners and organizations to which they are given as they help to increase the services these organizations can provide.
FACT: Government subsidies such as Link (food stamps) and WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) do not cover the cost of feminine hygiene products.
By focusing on women’s healthcare, Project Pixie works to meet the basic feminine needs of homeless and low-income women and girls. Our mission is to raise awareness of the period problem – a phrase we use to describe the taboo-filled injustices experienced by women around the world – and generate donations of feminine care products and dollars. These donations will, in turn, be used to provide monthly supplies to women in need, ensuring all women remain clean and healthy.
