Our Impact Testimonial
"Your donation of feminine care products is greatly appreciated and important to our efforts to offer lifesaving resources and life building tools to individuals and families who are living on the margin. Your generous gift of menstruation kits ensures every women who resides on our campus restores their sense of dignity and pride associated with personal appearance which is often diminished in an impoverished state." - One of Code Red partner shelters
Impact of Distribution
Since starting in 2015 we have distributed 8,000 care packages, and provided over 100,000 menstrual products to those in need! We seek to distribute 2,500 packages every 365 days and have exceeded this goal every year. We continue to distribute menstrual products to homeless shelters and refugee centers across the nation and have even donated menstrual products to those who found themselves in an emergency situation such as a natural disaster.
Impact of Advocacy
Through our Advocacy Program students across their university are given a toolkit as a foundation to start freeing menstrual products at their university or residence hall on campus. Our Advocacy program even extends to nationwide policy when it comes to menstruation. Code Red provides another toolkit for people to take action and intitive to advocate for tax free menstrual products in their state.
Impact of Engagement
Through our social media platforms we seek to inform our audience about menstrual hygiene and break the taboo around menstruation. Through research we also create inforgraphics and graphs to inform our audience to start a conversation about menstrual hygiene and sanitation.
A Look Inside The Code Red Team At Work
“Code Red has broaden my perspective when it comes issues not only around the world, but issues that are taking place in our own backyard. It pinpoints women’s issues, especially ones people never thought of, ever. Code Red has taught me how to set goals, become a better leader, practice being more patient, and how to make a difference in my community. Not to mention the fun team I get to work with.” - Yazmine (Code Red Team member)
