1 in 4 individuals struggle to purchase period supplies due to lack of income. 1 in 5 students miss school each month due to a lack of period supplies.

The Bright Spot is a program of the Austin Diaper Bank to help ensure that all individuals have access to essential period products required to participate fully in daily life. 
With your support, we are improving lives.

Improving Lives With Period Supplies

All individuals deserve to be able to fully participate in their lives, no matter what time of the month. Bright Spot program allows existing community partners to offer period products to clients who may also be receiving diapers.

Through Bright Spot, we also supply AISD Schools (Navarro Early College High School, Burnet Middle School, Lively Middle School) with pads and tampons so students can focus on their learning instead of their basic hygiene.

How You Can Help
Become a Monthly Supporter of the Bright Spot and help us distribute over 300,000 pads and tampons in 2021.
A monthly gift of $25 will help 5 people with period supplies each month.
