United Way Period Promise Campaign May 6 – June 7, 2022

May 20, 2022

To: All MoveUP members in the lower mainland

United Way’s Period Promise Campaign continues to work to support everyone who menstruates – women, girls, non-binary, and transgender people.

How we, and you, can help:

Our Period Promise campaign is from May 6 to June 7, and there are three key ways that you can help and be part of the solution to end period poverty.

Help us reach our financial goal:

One of the ways to help is to donate to this important campaign. If you are able to give financially, any help, whether it is big or small, will make a difference. We have made it easy donate, simply click on this unique URL to contribute: By using this code, we will be able to see how successful MoveUP’s campaign is. So, click on the web link above and the United Way can identify the donations that MoveUP members make and then they will be able to purchase products through their partnerships at a discounted rate.

Donate product:

Another way to help is to collect products. We encourage you to do this in your workplace or with your friends and families or in your community. MoveUP’s Women & Gender Rights Committee will be holding an event to collect products in the lower mainland. We will provide the details closer to the date, as we will ensure to follow all safety and public health protocols that are in place at that time.

Let us know if you plan on organizing collections in your workplace. The United Way has resources and a toolkit to help your planning. Check out their toolkit website here.

Volunteer with the United Way:

The United Way British Columbia needs volunteers to help pack up and distribute all those generous donations. If you think you have some time to donate, check out the volunteer schedule and they will contact you to confirm details. You can find them here and here. They are looking for packing up product volunteers, and drivers to distribute.

What your support means:

With the help of thousands of donors, United Way has been able to distribute more than 1.2 million menstrual products to community organizations in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, and Sea-to-Sky Corridor. We are committed to making it easier for everybody to access the product they need when they need it. Let’s help the United Way reach an even higher goal this year. Your support will improve the health and well-being of people and your support will make it easier for them to stay engaged in their communities.

In solidarity,

Christy Slusarenko, Vice-President
Chair, Women & Gender Rights Committee
