A holiday greeting from Frosty the Snow Diva

Frosty The Snow Diva

 

Frosty the Snow Diva
Was a jolly happy soul
With a Lunapad and a boyshort Thinx
And a Diva Cup, little bowl

Frosty the Snow Diva is no fairy tale, no way
She’s made of grit
She’s tough as s**t
And she lives her life her way

There must have been some magic in that
Illinois tampon law
‘Cuz now they’re tampons in the stalls
Right next to the mega roll

O Frosty the Snow Diva
Is alive as she can be
And We Gotchya’s here saying loud and clear
Free tampons there must be!

Thumpetty thump thump
Thumpetty thup thump
Look at Frosty go!

Tampon & Pad Drive is Part of Holiday Tree Program at Northwest


NWMSU Tree Lighting 2019

‘Tis the season for giving tampons and pads!

We Gotchya is one of five charities selected to be wrapped into the Holiday Tree program at Northwest Missouri State University. That means that collection bins around campus will be stuffed with tampons and pads alongside toys, clothing and food donations.

The other charities benefiting from the Holiday Tree collection are: Bearcat Food Pantry, Ben’s Stockings of Hope, Career Closet, and Pay-It-Forward.

A tree-lighting ceremony was held on Tuesday, Dec. 3, to kick off the giving season. The Horace Mann Laboratory School’s Bearcat Choir sang the cutest holiday songs, fire pits kept us warm, and we heard from several students representing all the religions on campus: Christianity, Hinduism, Juddaism and Islam.

During the ceremony, the university’s president, Dr. John Jasinski, explained the welcoming atmosphere on campus that’s accepting of all religions. It’s in this open and accepting environment that periods and menstruation are openly discussed at such a ceremony. We Gotchya is grateful for this warm support and openness in addressing menstrual needs on campus.

Happy Holidays to the entire Maryville community!

Hy-Vee Welcome Back BBQ

HyVee Welcome Back BBQTo kick off the school year in Maryville, MO, Hy-Vee sponsored a “Welcome Back” BBQ, with proceeds benefiting We Gotchya!

Hy-Vee is the center of town, and nearly everyone in a 20-mile radius comes to HyVee to shop and socialize. So, there’s just no better place to have a Welcome Back event!

Maryville residents were extremely supportive of the We Gotchya message. They donated feminine products and cash, and they purchased raffle tickets to win prizes donated by Maryville businesses: A&G, Blue Willow Boutique, Ferlukinat Farm, HOME by Sonya, La Chic and Minnie Lane.

We Gotchya raised over $225. This money will be used to buy supplies to make reusable cotton menstrual pads for Haiti.

A HUGE thank you to Sara Tompkins, Hy-Vee Grill Manager, for arranging this BBQ!
