First Period
#EveryBackpack

First.Period is designed to provide students with dignity during their menstrual cycle
and complement the programs that our schools have already initiated,

THIS IS A SCHOOL PROFESSIONAL LED PROGRAM.

Students take home a red.kit for their backpacks!

Overview

designed to provide all students with dignity during their menstrual cycle. Female students participating in an initial Nurse or other professionally led class discussion on puberty and period care will be given their own, fun and stylish refillable pouch with 2-3 days worth of maxi pads. We call these “red.kits” and they will include a Red.Lined business card, tag, age appropriate vinyl stickers and occasional additional products (like safe disposal bags).

Participants

School Age Children, age 8-11, 4th or 5th grade, female students participating in the initial Nurse or other professionally led classroom discussion on puberty and period care.

The Process

Get Involved!

Red Lined relies on word-of-mouth, community donations of menstrual supplies, and donated funds to support this portion of our program.  

  • Donate or fulfill our Amazon Wishlist

  • Spread the word: Like, follow, and share our posts on social media - amplification is so important, and best of all, free! 

  • Host a Red.Bin to collect supplies!

Red.Lined is a 501(c)3 organization, which means that we have achieved non-profit status at the federal and local level. This means that your donations are tax deductible.

Assembly

Each Red.Kit is hand-packed by dedicated volunteers with a 2-3 day supply of pads, tampons, and/or liners, and topped off with a cute Red.Lined tag featuring an empowering reminder for the user!

 

We're committed to sustainability, and utilize reusable packaging wherever possible. Whenever feasible (and always for schools and youth shelters!), Red.Kits are packed in refillable and once-loved cosmetic/travel bags (like Ipsy), that are cleaned, disinfected and inspected before being packed.

Distribution

We distribute directly to school nurses and educators for use in their pre-established puberty classes.

Each projected menstruator will leave class with their own kit and we hope, a smile.

If you're interested in establishing a Red Site, please reach out to us to discuss - we'd love to partner with you!
