HelloFlo – Making Periods Easier
Did you see THE viral video of the summer? It came from HelloFlo and if you didn’t see it, before we go any further take a moment and watch it:
Look – if you’re female, you get your period. Period. And if you’ve got daughters, they’re either already there or will be pretty soon and wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a way to make it as “pleasant” as possible?
That’s where HelloFlo comes in to save the day… or all 5 of them… I am so impressed with what founder, Naama Bloom has started that after I saw the Camp Gyno vide, I immediately got in touch with them because I knew we had to work together in some capacity.
Naama started HelloFlo in the hopes that it would help young ladies take control of their periods instead of spending years the other way. Who wouldn’t love to have a period care package show up on your doorstep, perfectly timed to when YOU needed it? And what if, inside that package, in addition to requisite supplies like tampons or pads (organic even!) there were special little treats like chocolate and candies?
One of the biggest decisions that I made as the mom to three girls was that I didn’t want them (or me!) to start their periods unprepared. With HelloFlo’s Period Starter Kit, both of you will be ready for the big day. Go ahead and order one of these and put it someplace safe for when the moment arrives. Inside you’ll find:
- Enough 100% organic cotton pads to get her through her first cycle
- Get Ready Guide for Parents
- Get Ready Guide for Girls
- A cute canvas pouch for taking supplies on the go
- A Do-it-yourself Feby Kit
- Surprise Gifts and Goodies
When we received ours, my daughter loved how the items in the starter kit really were for HER. It wasn’t overly prissy but it was feminine. The items were empowering – not flowery. Naama has really thought out what speaks to a pre-teen girl whose body is going thru some whacky changes.
From there, you can move to the monthly deliveries (no pun intended) where you have several options… First you choose organic or regular and then you can choose tampons or pads or a mix. From there you choose your “flo type”… light, medium or heavy and then your final decision is your subscription length. Like other subscription services, the more you sign up for, the cheaper the monthly rate. Sign up for a 6 month subscription to provide sanitary supplies to one school aged girl in Kenya for a full school year. (you can learn more about their partner ZanaAfrica here)
And the awesomeness goes beyond the monthly package.. HelloFlo has also gone to great lengths to make their site and blog full of empowering messages that elevate our girls to where they should be – strong and on top of the world. Just visit their blog (appropriately titled Period Hacks!) for all the girl power messages you can hope for.
HelloFlo would be a great gift idea for your bestie or your sister and a MUST have for your tween/teen daughter and you can be sure that you’re going to be seeing a lot more from our friend Naama and the team at HelloFlo over the next few months!!
Disclosure – We were provided a sample package of the Period Starter Kit in exchange for a review. All opinions (FABULOUS!) are 100% ours!
