United Way Period Promise increases access to free menstrual products in our community so that everyone who menstruates can go to work, get to school, access services, and stay connected to their community.

Donate today Period Poverty | United Way British Columbia ( and ask your colleagues, family, friends, or neighbours to help out as well!

This year’s Period Promise collection campaign, presented by Pacific Blue Cross in partnership with CUPE 1816, will run from May 1 – 31, 2024. We hope you’ll help us distribute more product to community organizations in our area. To make that possible, we’ll need to collect more than 500,000 menstrual products – or their equivalent in financial donations. It’s not going to be easy, but we’re making it safe and easy to get involved.

The easiest way to have an impact is to donate directly to the Period Promise campaign. You can do that by making a financial through this website, or by getting connected to a product collection campaign. If you want to go one step further, you can run a product collection or financial donation campaign with your family, friends, or coworkers!
