One of Procter & Gamble's leading brands is giving back to women's charities.

This month, Procter & Gamble’s feminine protection brand Tampax is collaborating with 20 social influencers and donating up to one million tampons to women’s charities across the U.S. Tampax will give to charities including: PERIOD, GOOD+ Foundation, Working Wardrobes, The Midnight Mission and Support the Girls.

Feminine hygiene products can become unaffordable to women in low-income positions, the company said. In the U.S., one in three women live in poverty or are close to it, which can make it difficult for them to have the proper protection they need monthly, Tampax said.

“It’s widely recognized that women and girls in developing countries often lack access to menstrual hygiene products, but what most Americans don’t realize is that this is true in our own backyard,” said Amanda Hill, marketing director of North America Feminine Care at Procter & Gamble. “We believe that every woman and girl deserves access to feminine care products, and this donation is part of our continued efforts in supporting those in need.”

Individuals can get involved by using the hashtag #PowerOverPeriods on social media or visit www.tampax.com for more information. Cincinnati's P&G is the world's largest consumer products company. The company operates a logistics center in Union where more than 1,200 people work.
