When natural disasters strike and you are forced to evacuate, most women don’t think to grab a box of tampons on the way out the door. Disasters can displace people and make it difficult to find basic supplies for days, weeks and sometimes even months. And while the situation is bad enough already, it would be made even worse if you had your period and no tampons in a time of need. We recognize that, and that’s why when disaster strikes, we act.
Tampax has been part of P&G’s broader disaster relief efforts to provide tampons to victims of disasters such as wildfires in California or Tropical Storm Erika in Dominica.
