Dear partners,

MH Day 2021 is approaching fast and we’re very excited to share all of the new MH Day 2021 campaign materials with you. We hope you like them!

Awesome illustrations and GIFs in multiple languages, oh my! 😍

Although the pandemic continues to impact every day life, we won’t let that stop us from spreading our message to demand action and investment to end period poverty and stigma as well as provide menstruation education across the globe. We’re ready now more than ever to take social media by storm and make the MH Day 2021 online campaign bigger and better than ever!

This year we’ve teamed up with 6 amazing artists to bring you the most powerful and diverse set of campaign materials ever. As always, the materials will be available in multiple languages, but there are also blank versions where you can include your own messaging in whatever language you prefer. There is also an exciting set of new animated GIFs for Instagram and Twitter, which you can find on these platforms as well as GIPHY by searching for “mhday”.

The English versions of the MH Day 2021 campaign materials are ready now, so just click on the button below to get them! Materials in other languages will be available on May 13th.

The Menstruation Bracelet action

28 elements, 5 of which are red. The Menstruation Bracelet is our simple yet powerful symbol for menstruation and our secret weapon to engage different audiences in the campaign, from your organisation’s staff and leadership to decision makers and influencers. 

To make it as easy as possible to participate, we’re providing you with a whole range of bracelet options, including digital bracelets and a template for cut out paper bracelets. If you have a thing for handicrafts, then let your creative juices flow and make your own individual bracelet from any type of material.

If you don’t want to post a selfie, you can also just post a picture of your hand or use one of the bracelet illustrations!
