Review for Fulfilling Destiny, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Their staff and their mission has been awe-inspiring with their journey to make menstrual products more accessible to homelessness communities. I was introduce to this company by my younger sister who is currently a staff member. At that point of time, I had no thought of how women and children struggle to meet their menstrual needs every month while also debating whether one can eat or drink under the hot sun or the cold of night. After our conversation and driving by areas that had hot spots of homeless people, I felt feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, and shame that I should've been more mindful of what was happening around communities that I worked in. With that in mind, I proceeded to involve myself as much as I can, by listening to my sister's stories about her volunteerism, by starting my own fundraisers to spread the news, and now, by working alongside my sister for this organization she introduced to me. This organization opened my eyes to see the additional struggles that poverty can impact women, and this organization I believe can help open the minds of others who are willing to listen to their mission statement.

"Our Mission is to support and empower those experiencing homelessness to have their period with dignity."
