Today marks the one-year anniversary of Fulfilling Destiny, an organization dedicated to helping disadvantaged women and young girls. With its kickoff, Fulfilling Destiny also launched their first campaign: Period with Dignity. Period with Dignity is the organization’s movement to help homeless women obtain free feminine hygiene products. While menstruation products are a recurring necessity, they may be tough to come by—especially for women of low socioeconomic status.
For the past year, Fulfilling Destiny coordinated donation drives and gathered sanitary pads, tampons, hygienic wipes, and brand new underwear. Following each drive, Fulfilling Destiny filled packages called Dignity Bags with these donated items. The organization distributed Dignity Bags to homeless women throughout downtown San Diego, and continues to do so twice a month.
In just a year, Fulfilling Destiny has distributed over 800 Dignity Bags filled with nearly $4,000 worth of feminine hygiene products to homeless women throughout San Diego. While we celebrate this amazing accomplishment, Fulfilling Destiny is excited to help even more women #PeriodWithDignity by its second anniversary.
Join us on our journey through our second year of Fulfilling Destiny! We look forward to more Donation Drives, distribution dates, and our upcoming 5K awareness run.

Most importantly, thank you to all of our donors, supporters, and volunteers this past year for offering donations and their time for putting together our Dignity Bags. Without you all, Fulfilling Destiny would not have been able to fulfill our mission of helping disadvantaged women. Thank you, and we can’t wait to see what this next year brings!
