Use Your Period For Good

I was looking at movie trailers late last night over at Yahoo Movies and an advertisement came on for tampons and the ending tagline was just so damn ridiculous (and funny). Basically the commercial was saying many girls in Africa miss school during their period because they don’t have protection. Then it said whenever you buy Tampax, they’ll donate tampons to African girls or something like that.

The commercial ends with a woman saying, in an uplifting tone:

“Use your period for good.”

Man, what a line! If I was drinking something I would have definitely splattered it all over the place. How do they come up with this stuff?!

If you snorted your drink all over your shirt, change into a “Use Your Period For Good” tee shirt. Seriously – you can get one at

Everyone know that being on your period isn’t exactly the most fun thing in the world. Isn’t the idea — turn your period into a positive? As in, when life hands you lemons, make lemonade? I don’t know if all the girls love the line, but all the girls I know love the idea. One even said she wished she got her period more often, so she could help even more!
