Her Drive is a Chicago-based nonprofit organization that collects basic hygiene supplies, menstrual product and bras to people in need. Their efforts help combat period and hygiene poverty throughout North America.
Breanna Rama, 17, is the head volunteer for Her Drive: Vancouver. Donations collected by Forever Yours Lingerie will go directly to Her Drive: Vancouver which will distribute them to the Downtown Eastside Women's Center.
"As someone who menstruates, I think this is an issue that I feel particularly close to. Because it’s hard having a period so imagine how much harder it is for someone who's living on the streets and doesn’t have access to these necessary products" - Breanna Rama
