Take Our #GiftAPad Challenge Now And Get the Conversation Going

There's no time better than this one to kickstart the conversation around menstrual hygiene.

A clean, healthy alternative to unsanitary products during menstruation is the need of the hour. Only 12 percent women in the country have access to sanitary pads on account of cost-related issues, low awareness and social taboos.

Do you agree that every woman should be given the means to be able to make a well-informed choice?

If yes, join  us RIGHT NOW to take this discussion forward. To go beyond verbal affirmations. Gift a packet of sanitary pads to someone around you who needs it and pass on the message to at least 3 of your friends on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

The Akshay Kumar-starrer Pad Man is all set for release this week and the discussion has only gotten fiercer and stronger! While we appreciate every initiative out there, (whether an internet challenge or a campaign) that spreads awareness about menstrual hygiene, we realise that there’s more to the discussion:

Are you concerned about the fact that sanitary pads are taxable products?

Are you also concerned about the safe disposal of soiled sanitary pads (which are non-biodegradable and are not only harmful for health, but also affect the environment)?

Whatever be your cause, IT IS a reason to start talking about something that has long been a taboo in our country.

Join us NOW.

Take our #GiftAPad challenge and join the campaign. And make sure you loop in as many people around as possible!

Let's take a small step to make sanitary pads accessible to more women, starting with some whom we see around us, everyday.
