Simple to use, both The Moon Cup and The Keeper are innovative feminine hygiene products that are worn internally, freeing women from dependency on cumbersome, uncomfortable, expensive, paper-based products. Economical, efficient, comfortable, and environment-friendly, reusable menstrual cups are attractive alternatives to other feminine hygiene products. Made by a woman for women, The Keeper is made from natural gum rubber — i.e., latex and The Moon Cup made from medical grade silicone — i.e., non-latex.

Be Prepared Period Supports Relay for Life

We are very excited to announce that this year Be Prepared Period will have a team participating in Arlington, Washington’s Relay for Life (June 23rd/24th)!

 

What is Relay for Life?

“Relay” an abbreviated nickname, is a terrific, overnight, relay-style event held all across the country to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Teams of people camp out around a track with members of each team taking turns walking around the track for the duration of the event. Each event has its own “flavor” or style. Some events are held in stadiums around a track like Arlington’s, while others are held around city blocks, like in Bellingham, Washington. Whatever the style, they are sure to provide great opportunities to raise awareness and funds for cancer.

Arlington Relay for Life 2011Last year, I (Tara) was invited to participate in “Relay” for the first time by a friend whose company was sponsoring a team. She told me it was an amazing event, but I don’t think one can fully understand the magic of the event without participating personally. It is hard to express how it makes you feel to be surrounded by thousands of participants gathered to support, celebrate and remember the lives that have been touched by cancer. How has cancer affected your life? (I don’t think there are many that have not had cancer touch their lives in one way or another. I pause…as I write this post to remember just a few of the loved ones I have lost to this horrible disease…Grandma “Pumpkin Patch”- Breast Cancer, Uncle Jim N.- Lung Cancer, Great Grandma “O” – Pancreatic Cancer, Uncle Jim A. – Pancreatic Cancer. They are gone, but never forgotten.)

 

So what makes this event so special? Click to continue reading… »

Endometriosis Awareness Month Recap

Endometriosis Awareness Month has come to a close but the great work that organizations like, The Endometriosis Association, The Center for Endometriosis Care and The Endometriosis Network Canada is not done. Their work to raise awareness for this “invisible” disease goes on year round. We feel so honored to have taken part in their mission of raising awareness, educating and providing hope.

Last year, we helped raise awareness by adding a new Endometriosis section to our site and also included Endometriosis brochures in all our shipments for the month of March.

This year, we are proud to report that much more was done to raise awareness.

This “invisible” disease became visible:

- On Twitter: We hosted a special Endometriosis Awareness Tweet Chat with special guests, The Center For Endomteriosis Care & Dr. Sallie Sarrel (transcript available, here)

- In every BePreparedPeriod.com shipment: Endometriosis brochures (provided by The Endometriosis Association) were added to all orders

- On our blog and Endometriosis section: Personal stories from many courageous EndoSisters, and an article about Endometriosis Awareness from the Endometriosis Network Canada were added
