Desperate Plight of Homeless Women

The Huffington Post artcle tells the dreadful story about homeless women
For Homeless Women, Getting Their Period Is One Of The Most Difficult Challenges

When was the last time you gave a box of Tampons to a Homeless Shelter?

When was the last time you worried about the Homeless Women on our streets?

For Homeless Women, Having a Period Isn't a Hassle – It's a Nightmare!!
Read about some of the options for the menstruating cycle... Read here.....

This fall we had a cold rainy weekend and Serene, a High School student, began worrying about the homeless women on the streets of Vancouver, BC.
How do they manage their periods when living on the street? She looked into the problem, what she learned made her feel bad and she was determined to do something to help. She asked if she could join me, The Sock Granny, to focus on helping the homeless women with their needs. I agreed and she immediately went to work.
With her first donations she went shopping.

She shopped with two rules: 1. Women's Hygiene 2. Women's Comfort

Please support Serene's passion to help homeless women by donating hygienic products at the Sock Granny Donation box @ Granville Island Starbucks.
