Red Dot Campaign, Inc

In January 2015, two women came together to, simply put, improve women's health for those less fortunate.  

 

Focusing on the period—a natural, beautiful part of female biology that can become a monthly nightmare for some—their initiative became the #RedDotCampaign. Working in collaboration with over 15 organizations at the University of Maryland, College Park, Jewel Addy and Eva Woolridge surpassed their goal of collecting 10,000 menstrual health products for women experiencing homelessness in Washington, D.C.

 

During the donation process, menstruation became a topic of intense conversation, and as a result, the mission of #RedDot expanded into a social movement. Simply collecting tampon and pad donations was not enough. The #RedDot team's new vision aims to convert period shaming into public and proud period discussion.

 

In turn, #RedDotCampaign boldly encourages women and men to recognize, embrace, and celebrate the period. It's not "yucky." It's not "gross." It's a part who we are.
