Together we can

End period poverty.

No student should miss school because they are on their moon time and don’t have period supplies. No one should miss work or miss out on daily life because they on their moon time and don’t have period supplies.

With the help of many, we are making headway. We have come a long way since 2018 when we started by supporting one school’s students. But there is so much more to do. Our near-term goals are to grow exponentially the number of period products we donate and extend our reach to at least 120 school and community-based program partners through 2023. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate period poverty in Indigenous communities.

With your help, we can meet these goals and ensure dignity.

There are many ways to support our work. Whether you are an individual, a family or friends group, a business or non-profit group, a faith community, a donor-advised fund, or a foundation grantor, we welcome your support. Please consider how you can help. Perhaps you can put us in touch with a community that needs our help or you can organize a period supplies drive in your own community. What’s a contribution you can make that we haven’t thought of? We welcome your ideas and your partnership.

We appreciate the love and care you show through your donations, your time, and the supplies you send.

Donate to our Mission

Our primary uses of donor funds are to purchase period supplies — in bulk, where possible; to pay costs of shipping or trucking supplies to our partners, who are situated throughout the United States and Canada; and to cover administrative fees assessed on some of the products donated to us.

We treasure all donations and especially welcome monthly donations, as these give us stability as we work to meet the monthly moon time needs of those we support. Please consider giving a donation monthly in celebration of your own moon time or that of the students we support, or others in your life!


Paypal Giving Fund

When you donate through this link, PayPal pays all fees and we get 100% of your donation.


You also can donate monthly through Network for Good, or monthly or one-time through AB Charities, which accepts Venmo, GooglePay, PayPal and credit cards (each of these platforms charges us a small fee per donation).

Host a product collection drive for us

Hosting a period supply collection drive spreads the word in your local community about menstrual inequity, and allows folks to make a difference one box of period supplies at a time. Watch this video to see how you can host your own period supply collective drive and support The Kwek Society.

Host a virtual product collection drive for us

Conducting a virtual product drive for us, through Be Prepared Period, is easy and contact-free. Just answer a few questions, set a goal, and BPP will set you up with a donation link you can share with your contacts. Participants donate funds online and these come to us in the form of BPP’s organic pads and tampons.

Sew and stuff moon time bags

Are you someone who can sew, or do you want to learn? Moon time bags are a perfect sewing project to provide period supplies in a discreet package. Sew some up, fill them with pads and liners, and send them to us.

Moon Time Bags provide period supplies in a celebratory, small package.

Bags that are the size shown fit up to four ultra-thin (size 1) pads, a couple liners, and a message of celebration from The Kwek Society. Having a bag ready in a locker or backpack goes a long way to reducing anxiety of students anticipating their first periods, and of anyone who worries whether they will have access to period supplies when they need them.

You can learn more about The Kwek Society’s mission and the Citizen Potawatomi kwe’k/women behind our moon time bag design and instructional video here.
