Periods are hard.

Getting period products shouldn't be harder.

A Jam for Pads and Tampons

Help us end period poverty.


What is Jampon?

Jampon! A Jam for Pads and Tampons is a new non-profit that raises menstruation products and funds for unhoused individuals in the NYC community.


Jampon was initially launched as a grassroots fundraiser at the University of Evanville in 2018. Over the years, this initiative has evolved into a highly-anticipated event that supports the local YWCA shelter in Evansville, IN. The cause now extends to New York City, where organizers seek to continue their efforts to eradicate period poverty.


Through this initiative, the organizers seek to achieve their objective of reducing the cost of menstrual products, educating individuals about healthy menstrual cycles, and fostering empowerment among all menstruators through community and art.

We're partnering with New Alternatives, an organization dedicated to reducing homelessness among LGBTQ+ youth and young adults in New York City.
