CCO is a 501c(3) that donates in the USA and Canada.
~Free cloth pad and menstrual cup kits (for people truly in need)
CCO is a non-discriminatory group. Anyone who menstruates can apply for a kit. A parent or guardian may apply for children in their household of menstruating age.
*New and gently used (sanitized) kits are offered. If you have special requests after you've applied for a free kit, like low cervix menstrual cup, narrow or wide pads or gender neutral prints please send us an email.
We have everyone fill out a short application. We ask some personal questions but do not require any financial statements or proof of being on assistance. We understand sometimes people just need a little help getting by.
We ask that you truly be in need if you are applying for a free kit. There are a lot of people needing these so we want to make sure the ones who need them are the ones that get them.
An easy online questionnaire is all that's needed to apply for a Free kit. We ask that you pay the small shipping fee.
We have a lot of requests for the free sets so it may take weeks/months to get an approval email with payment instructions. We appreciate your patience as we work on them.
We greatly need and rely on the generous donations from our supporters to keep helping people. Every pad and cup donated goes to someone in need.
Every little donation makes a BIG difference!
Donating supplies and material is also a great way to help! We are always in need of PUL for wet bags, and fleece for backers.
*New and gently used cloth pads and cups are always in great need as well!
22109 Albion ave. Farmington Hills, MI 48336 is the address to send donations to.
Cloth Connection Outreach gas teamed up as a chapter of Period Movement to host Educational Workshops about reusable menstrual products. Period donated the cups we give away at the workshops. Contact us to see if theres a workshop in your area (Michigan is our starting state)
MeLuna-USA has added us on their website as an option to donate a cup to. They have also donated extra cups and a ring of all their cup options to show at our Educational workshops!
Femmycycle has donated some cups for our educational workshops also! They have also graciously offered a $10 discount (Fem10) on their website for our supporters!
CCO has started making and selling educational model vaginas/vulvas to educators to help teach about reusable menstrual products and general period health.
An easy online questionnaire is all that's needed to apply for a Free kit. We ask that you pay a small shipping fee.
There are several ways to help! We are always in need of cloth pads (new or gently used) and menstrual cups. We can always use supplies as well (flannel, fleece, thread, ribbons 1/2" wide, PUL and plastic snaps).
There's always the option to donate funds. Every cent goes back into the organization.
Cloth pads are better for the environment and for people's health. Disposables are known to cause irritation and allergies and have been know to cause TSS *We are not medical doctors and will not give medical advice
Along with the above benefits there's also the money savings. as disposables can be a financial monthly burden.
Donating just $10 helps give a cloth pad kit to someone in the U.S.A. or Canada! Giving local is so important as many here struggle to pay daily bills and saving money on menstrual products can make a huge difference in their life! These pads will last 5-10 years!
CCO is always looking to partner with other group and non-profits that support our vision of helping others. Financial sustainability, reproduction health, woman's rights, LGBTQ support, PCOS support and awareness, ect. If you'd like to partner with us please send us an email!
