Quotes from individuals who have been supported by TOTM pad donations:
“Thanks for the pads: sometimes I have to eek them out and try to only use one all day, at night I use an old flannel and wash it. I worry all day in case my pad leaks and I don’t have a spare.”
“I have two teenage girls who both have periods, some weeks all I seem to do is buy pads for them. I tried buying the really cheap ones but the girls hate them, they say they make them sore.”
“As a single dad I had no idea about period products. I was shocked how expensive they are when my daughter started her period. You can’t really ask in the shop which is best to use so I just buy the ones I see on the TV. They seem to be the most expensive, but I don’t know what else to buy. I just can’t seem to get on top of my money, this is a huge help to me.”
