My boss sent me this, and I clicked it. So far, no spam. Sounds like a good cause and a legit source.

You probably never thought of this, but women's shelters in the U.S. go through thousands of tampons and pads monthly. Assistance agencies
generally help with expenses of "everyday" necessities such as toilet paper, diapers, and clothing, but one of the most BASIC needs is overlooked - feminine hygiene products. (Who is at the helm of the funding assistance
agencies!?)

Seventh Generation, a green paper products and cleaning products company, has a do-good attitude and will donate a box of sanitary products to
a women's shelter in your chosen state - just for clicking the link. Talk about easy (literally takes less than 1 minute and they ask nothing of
you)!

And, yes, it is Legitimate!

What an awesome, awesome thing to do! And so easy. I've already done it in the few minutes since Gumdrop posted it. Everyone I know is going to know in a few hours. Thanks for posting this!

This company is wonderfully generous. Forget the "10 cents of every purchase" gimmick other companies use to try to help.

Thanks for the great link, Gumdrop Girl! I just visited the site and will bring some tampons and pads to a shelther soon-- such "necessary items" I totally hadn't thought of!
