FAQ

Where does my money go?

shē thing accepts two different types of monetary donations – donations for menstrual kits and general donations.  

100% of your menstrual kit donation is used to get supplies for our kits. Monies from your genaral donations are broken down as follows:

 

50% Menstrual Solutions

shē thing is a grass roots organization and we spend the bulk of our budget providing menstrual solutions directly to women and girls who need it.  

25% Education & Outreach

Right after accessibility and affordability, menstrual gaps exist because of the lack of social acceptance and dialogue.  We spend a quarter of our funds developing and executing education programs. 

15% Chapter Support

Without the help of our generous partners and donors, shē thing would not exist.  Our chapters serve as megaphones of our message and active ambassadors in their communities.  We use a portion of your donation investing in our chapters.

10% Operations

While our passion is serving women and girls, we have to be mindful of the business side of shē thing.  The remainder of our budget goes to organizational operations and expenses.

What's a "menstrual gap?"

Did you know the number one reason girls miss school in sub-Saharan Africa is being on their period?  Did you know that girls in impoverished communities often miss school because they lack the necessary tools to help them manage their period?  Did you know that companies are creating policy that allows women to take off work during their period?

If girls are not in school or women are not at work they are often not afforded the same opportunities – socially, academically, culturally and economically – as their male counterparts. When this disparity is rooted in or caused by menstruation, there lies the menstrual gap.
