Break this Taboo, PERIOD.

Right now, millions of girls are left with nothing but leaves, mud, and old rags to "manage" their periods. Even in 2014, this is a problem that isn't being acknowledged around the world because menstruation is still considered something to be ashamed of. 

We want to break this horrible taboo that forces girls to miss school during their "week of shame."

So, for every pair of THINX that is purchased, we fund seven washable, reusable cloth pads for a girl in the developing world so that she can go back to school, putting the girl effect in motion.

Check out this video to get the full story.

And, for every pair of THINX that is purchased, we fund the production of seven washable, reusable cloth pads for a girl in the developing world so she can can go back to school.
