Our Story

Our story begins in two very different parts of the world - one in Denver Colorado and the other in the tiny Himalayan nation of Nepal! My name is Kate Reynolds. I am a stay-at-home mom of 3 young girls and a full-time aspiring entrepreneur. Though at times challenging, being a mother of young girls has been the best and the most rewarding experience of my life. 

Having an entrepreneurial mindset from a very young age, I have always wanted to provide value to the world I live in. To me, my family is my world. So when presented with the opportunity to make their lives better, I dove in head first!

  • I met Shah in a local moms' support group in Denver. We instantly connected over our love for raising young girls and her passion for women empowerment. Shah is an immigrant from Nepal and a young mother. Our girls have hung out together and been besties for all of their lives. During one of our conversations, Shah became emotional and mentioned the condition of young girls in Nepal. Being from one of the poorest and socially backward nations on earth, she mentioned how miserable the condition of young girls in Nepal was.

Nepal has a patriarchal society where women and young girls had to deal with sexual discrimination, lack of education, hunger, poverty, and many other societal restrictions. Shah was grateful that she had the good fortune of being able to raise her children in America. She was specifically concerned about how Nepalese girls struggle with "period poverty" - lack of menstruation products and most importantly the absence of period education. I was appalled to learn that young girls as young as 9 are forced to live in a "menstruation hut" during their periods.

  • Outcast by their family, these young girls are shamed into living in these huts for a number of days. A lot of them die a sad and lonely death due to the cold and lack of ventilation. Thanks to UN intervention, this practice has been outlawed now. However, it is still widely practiced and encouraged in Nepal and many other third-world countries around the world!

 I mentioned to her that though nowhere as close to the plight of young girls in Nepal, our western society was still behind in period education. Even in this day and age, period conversation is a taboo topic.

  • What came out of this conversation was an idea. The idea to provide young girls going through puberty with a kit to help them better understand and handle their first period. We set out to build a team of like-minded mothers to create a product that would help us achieve this goal. We were pleasantly surprised to be met with a lot of enthusiasm and females who are committed to this cause. Through our kits we aim to demystify the taboo of menstruation in young girls and provide value to the world. This is our life's mission.

We humbly invite you to join us on this journey!
