#HappyPeriod was founded by Chelsea VonChaz and her Mother, Cherryl Warner, in the Spring of 2015. The idea came to Chelsea after witnessing a homeless woman crossing the street, free-bleeding, wearing blood stained rags. After talking to a rep of a shelter, she learned that pads and tampons are rarely donated and not required to be included in the operational budget.

Ensure menstrual health education and period care for all
We believe that no one should go without menstrual care and in ending the stigma surrounding menstruation. We are currently developing a new program centered on a youth-centric curriculum focused on period health and self-efficacy. When we remove the socially placed insecurities around the period, women and especially girls can thrive.
