Menstrual Hygiene Day Giveaway!

Monday May 28th will be Menstrual Hygiene Day, or affectionally referred to as MHDay.

This is a significant day in the lives of people like me who have businesses that involve menstruation in one way or another as no other day of the year pays much attention to menstruation, at least not officially. (I'm sure all women can agree that there are a LOT of days of the year that focus heavily on menstruation - pun intended.)

To honour this special day I am hosting a giveaway with a menstrual themed prize pack. 

The prize includes a Feby bracelet, DivaCup & DivaWash, the puberty book 'My Body, My Self' by Lynda and Area Madaras and a large T-shirt with an empowering message on the front in support of the Canadian Women's Foundation. (approximate value $77)

Come back and visit this website on Monday May 28th for information regarding Menstrual Hygiene Day. 

Menstrual Hygiene Day Special

Hello friends. The 2nd annual Menstrual Hygiene Day is tomorrow and it is a day to discuss all things period related with no embarrassment or shame because #MenstruationMatters. One of the many  goals of this day is to banish the shame that some feel discussing this topic because at some time or another, all females menstruate and it is important they know all there is to know about why they get their periods, what to expect throughout the month and managing their periods with proper hygiene. 

In fact, there are so many myths and taboos surrounding menstruation that it affects the way women deal with their periods, oftentimes unnecessarily. 

Have you ever heard of #Menstruphopia? Unfortunately it is real but hopefully the more people who talk about menstruation openly and without shame, such a silly phobia will disappear quicker than cramps on your first day. 

Watch this video to get a better idea of what Menstruphobia is and how it affects women worldwide. 

 

Many esteemed organizations are joining in to raise awareness for this cause. Interesting articles can be found here:

Taboos around periods hurt everyone at the Huffington Post.

What would the world look like if men had periods at the Telegraph UK.

A Woman's Right. Period. 

 

I believe the Female Empowerment Bracelet also serves to open education, communication and to help destroy the centuries of shame that have surrounded this female phenomenon. 

In honour of this day we are offering a special 28% discount on all orders placed between May 28th and midnight May 31st. Simply use coupon code MHD2015 when checking out and the discount will be applied. Like Menstrual Hygiene Day itself our coupon is a play on numbers...it's valid for 5 days (just like the average length of a period) and it's 28 percent off (as a typical menstrual cycle is 28 days in length). 

Happy shopping!
