HELLO #HAPPYPERIOD: GOODBYE PERIOD POVERTY
We’re super excited to announce we’ve teamed up one of our all-time favourite non-profits, #HappyPeriod. Founded by the inspirational Chelsea VonChaz, they’re doing amazing work in the US educating and removing stigma in the menstrual health space - as well as working directly with people living in hardship to provide safe and accessible period products.
From October 2020, we’ll be donating 10% of net profits from Hello Cup Black Cups sold via our USA store (that’s right here!) directly to #HappyPeriod. We’ll also be providing Hello Cups with instructional guides for the team to distribute to groups they support in the community.
This initiative is part of our Hello Kindness programme where we support groups we admire to keep doing their amazing work.

What’s the issue?
In the United States, many people with periods struggle with affordability and access to period products. According to a 2019 study, almost two-thirds of low-income women surveyed couldn’t afford access to menstrual care. By partnering with #HappyPeriod, we hope to help reach those struggling to access sustainable period care through our menstrual cups.
