Last December we asked you all which causes you find most important, and… Mental Health, Gender Diversity and Endometriosis came up as the top 3 causes.
So, to honour Women's History Month and International Women's Day, U by Kotex® amplified your voice about the causes closest to your heart. We have split our $50k SheCan Fund between 3 amazing organisations who are working towards these causes. See below to learn more about these great organisations.
