BLOG: Defying Stigma for a Worthy Cause

“After some brainstorming and research, we came up with the name “UndAWARE.”  Bras, panties, pads and tampons are basic human necessities, yet they are the items least donated to women’s shelters. Often, homeless women have to make a choice between paying for meals or buying a box of tampons each month. Furthermore, wearing the same undergarments for extended periods of time can lead to serious health problems.”
