February 8, 2024

At Aunt Flow, we’re committed to changing the world, one cycle at a time. In partnership with these incredible Black women-led organizations, we’ve been able to provide MILLIONS of freely accessible Aunt Flow period products all over the world.

Love Your Menses

Co-founded by Dr. Ebere Azumah and Bria Gadsen in Boston, MA, in 2019, Love Your Menses is a non-profit social impact organization founded with the goal of empowering menstruators of color. Love Your Menses is actively building the next generation of leaders by providing an educational, uplifting, and supportive space for Black and Brown girls and gender-expansive youth, women, and all people who menstruate to learn about the menstrual cycle and create equitable public health solutions. The communities they serve include the Boston area as well as Liberia, Nigeria, The Gambia, Haiti, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Kenya.

Thurman Perry Foundation

Founded in 2021 by Gabrielle Perry, The Thurman Perry Foundation (TPF) is a Louisiana-based non-profit dedicated to bettering the lives of women and girls impacted by incarceration. Their vision is to remove obstacles to success and ensure that every woman and girl receives a fair chance to thrive and succeed. 

Through their Girl Code Initiative, TPF donates organic cotton period products each month to women housed inside of Orleans Parish Justice Center, one of the largest pre-trial correctional facilities in the U.S. TPF also provides pads and tampons semi-annually to women housed inside the Louisianna Correctional Insititute for Women. They’ve been able to donate nearly 112,000 period products, helping a total of 2,000 women and girls.

Hi! I’m Claire. I founded Aunt Flow after getting my period in public without the supplies needed.

At 18 years old, I dedicated my life to developing a solution to ensure businesses and schools could sustainably provide quality period products, for free, in bathrooms. Our products are made with organic cotton and we are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact! Since 2021, we've donated over 5 MILLION period products to menstruators in need. I call this people helping people. PERIOD.®
