THE R100 MINA CUP CHALLENGE

THE R100 MINA CUP CHALLENGE

Personal message

Campaign objective: RAISE 5000 Mina menstrual cups
Just R100 empowers a menstruator in need for 5 years!

Period products don’t come cheap, never mind free! In fact, period poverty is a widespread, human rights concern and yet so few are talking about it, and even less are acting to change it. IN STEPS MINA!! A symbol of victory, of triumph and conquering - to become your best.

A symbol of courage, of overcoming impossible odds, and achieving greatness.
A name that conjures up images of the ultimate sacrifice and the ultimate success: the cup of dreams, the cup of champions, the cup of those who dare to make a change - the cup that is uniting a nation.


IT IS the Mina Cup!
Can you imagine the desperation and humiliation that goes with asking your abuser to buy you period products? Or being told to pull your pants down at school to prove you are menstruating when you request a pad? YES - we have heard it all, and we have seen it all. And we are putting an end to it all.


And we want YOU - South Africa, to work with us and stand alongside Mina in her mission to champion this initiative. To all women out there, it’s time to act. To all Fathers, Uncles, brothers - these are your daughters, your sisters, your nieces, our future leaders. The fact is whatever one’s circumstances, every single female will start menstruating, without permission and without warning.

But not every single female will have access to menstruation products to adequately manage their periods. And it is time to end this TOGETHER! We as a nation need to work to restore dignity to all menstruators, so that we may stand together 10 years from now, tackling a new challenge and RISE above. None of us can walk away from this, after all, the only thing we ALL have in common is that we all were born from a missing period.

If you menstruate, you need to be IN! If someone menstruated for you to be here, then you definitely need to be IN! SAY NO to Period poverty. END IT NOW!! The good news is that YOU too can be part of the change. And since you are already on our donate page, YOU must be in!
1. Once you’ve donated your R100, snap a picture of you/your donation.
2. Then post it to social media with the text “I am in”. (Tag @TheMinaFoundation )
3. Don’t forget to then tag a friend and challenge them to follow suit.
It’s as easy as ordering fast food online and cheaper than having your nails done.
I’m 100 bucks in, how about you?

Your donation is immensely valued. Please consider making an additional small monthly contribution to our organisation.
