Project Description

When Founder Ashley L. Eubanks, saw a homeless woman bleeding through her clothes she had to do something! After much research she became aware of the lack of feminine hygiene items for homeless women she immediately took the initiative to make a change.

In 2016, she used her 30th birthday to collect menstrual supplies. The Beauty Initiative Inc., and Help Her, period was created has dispersed over 250,000 feminine items to women and girls in need all over the state in just ONE year. Her next initiative Hygiene4All provides hygiene necessities to men, women and children in hopes to restore dignity to those without immediate access to hygiene products.

Help Her, period

Help Her, Period provides menstrual necessities to women experiencing homelessness and also girls in local schools. In South Florida alone, there was a major deficit in menstrual products for women that are homeless as well as girls in inner-city schools. Without supplies to accommodate this natural occurrence for all women, these females are forced to make provisions. Whether using toilet tissue, a sock or simply going without. We are determined to ensure that NO female has to choose food or menstrual products!

In one year our organization has distributed more than 200,000 items across the state of Florida and Georgia. Monthly we distribute over 1,000 individual items to local shelters, co-ops, schools, and street donations.

 

Hygiene4ALL

Help Her, Period has been successful thus far but being an Educator, Ashley noticed there was a serious need for hygiene with the students she served daily. Hygiene is no longer taught in schools leaving most students unaware of the importance of healthy hygiene. Alongside her team of energized volunteers Ashley launched Hygiene4All the second initiative which provides all hygiene necessities for men, women, and children. Primarily focused on students in schools that are in inner-city schools.

Our research has proven that students that have proper hygiene practices are healthier, have higher self-esteem, perform better academically, and are least susceptible to being bullied.

 

Our goal is to donate 500 bags filled with full size hygiene products to students returning to school. No student should have to attend school unclean due to a financial hardship.
