Did you know that nearly 1 in 5 girls have missed school because they can’t afford period protection? It’s not just school they miss. It also means missing out on activities they love, like sports practices, drama club, or student council.

At puberty, girls’ confidence plummets, and having to miss activities because of lack of access to period products only makes this drop in confidence worse. Missing out can limit a girl’s potential and opportunities far beyond puberty.

We’re so excited to support Always & Walmart's Live #LikeAGirl campaign to spread the word about this important issue as they work to #EndPeriodPoverty.  Always and Walmart are donating a year’s supply of period products to 50 teams in 50 states, so girls in need don’t have to miss out on the activities they love because they don’t have access to period protection.

Help spread the word on this important campaign, by sharing the Always Live #LikeAGirl video and entering our giveaway below! One lucky winner will receive a $50 Walmart gift card.

    Never had to experience this and well if I had a daughter I would most definitely keep her protected.

    I wish I had support like this growing up. It?s a great response in helping young girls be prepared. It?s so important that girls feel comfortable with themselves and cope with different options to still enjoy being in their own skin on a failing

    This is so important. We keep ignoring the poverty in the US and there are many Americans living in poverty and 25% of them are in extreme poverty, where they have no running clean water or sewage treatment/disposal. Our government likes to think our economy is good, but it is not if we have any poverty at all in this country. If we raised the tax of the top 1% by 1% we could pay all those earning less than $24,000 (poverty level for family of 4) enough to bring their incomes up to $24,000, and wipe out poverty right off. Stop putting conditions on aid by requiring account of "worthiness." By giving the wealthy a tax cut instead of a tax deduction, we are not holding them accountable for their welfare benefit. If Congress wants to cut "entitlements," start with that tax cut they gave to the top 1%, which was the only tax cut that was set as permanent. Didn't they make that an "entitlement"?
