Menstrual Cup Donation projects

Sustainable Cycles

The Keeper, DivaCup, Lunette, My Own Cup & Ruby cup, have donated to this cause – which helps to educate American women about reusable menstrual products.

Freedom Cups
http://freedomcups.org

People can purchase cups which are then donated (or can be delivered if you’re traveling in areas where they are needed).  Seemingly using the Cheap Chinese cups.

The Cup

Looks like Lunette, RubyCup and Mooncup might be donating to this cause.

  1. Hi Obsidian^^

    I’m currently on a tablet, so couldn’t make sort of an extensive research ha, but here are a few others..

    Sustainable Cycles : MyOwnCup and Ruby Cup are part of it, too – at least, for the year 2015.

    Femmecup is a ‘big one’ too. We can have info about it by looking for “femmecup charity” on google, or on the news section of their official website.
    – In March 2011, they donated cups to women of Christchurch, New Zealand. (After the flood, I seem to remember?)
    – They are or have been involved with charitable projects in Ghana, Uganda, Kenya. See also the Nalini Project, in Nepal.
    – ‘Donate one for every one you buy’ program.
    Notably, they gave 150 cups to homeless women of London at last Christmas, via charity CRISIS. (I believe the data are these.. f I’m not confused among all the info, ah.)

    Softcup : http://softcup.com/give

    MyOwnCup Inkululeko Project : http://www.myowncup.co.za/?page=project

    Mooncup UK type of donations : http://www.mooncup.co.uk/about-us/team-giving.html

    Genti-She : on a facebook page, it appears they do some educating sessions to pupils in schools, in particular. Hum there’s been an Eva program..

    (Really not sure, but maybe Luv Ur Body is doing such things, too?)

  2. Oh, Miacup (menstrual-cups.wikidot.com/miacup) : “Donates money from each sale to a local charity.”

    Confirmed by yourself ;o) (https://menstrualcups.wordpress.com/2008/07/10/miacup-my-thoughts/) : “I like that the company donates money from each sale to charity (and encourages customers to donate as well), and is concerned with environmental issues.”

  5. Hi there,

    I am hoping to find a registered charity that gives out menstrual cups and provides education on menstruation and sexual health.
    Can you recommend any registered charities please?

    Best regards,
    Hannah Morris

  7. Sorry but I don’t have any more information than is here.

    You’d have to contact charities and check yourself.
