Let's Talk...Period

We met Jessica Bern at BlogHer in July. She was on the humor panel. She is hilarious and awesome. And she's involved in a cool new campaign with Seventh Generation (a company that makes environmentally-friendly household and personal care products) to raise money for ovarian cancer research. You should check it out so that you can be awesome too, because everyone hates cancer and loves awesomeness.

Here are the details:
Did you know that 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year? If you didn’t, chances are neither do the women in your circle. To get the conversation flowing, Seventh Generation has partnered with the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund to elevate our voices and start talking about ovarian cancer. Let’s stop it from being a “silent killer.”

On September 1, 2009, join Seventh Generation to save women's lives. For every person that registers, $1 will be donated to the OCRF until we hit $22,000 (each year 22,000 women are diagnosed with the disease).
To register, go to Seventh Generation's Let's Talk Period page. They've also got some basic info on the risks and symptoms of ovarian cancer from the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. (We're thinking they could probably put that $22,000 to good use.) If you're interested, you can also learn how to "green your period" with Seventh Generation's organic cotton tampons. Do it for Aunt Flo.

I'd just like to add that menstrual cups are a great way to "green" your period, save money, and do your body some good. Look it up if you don't know about it, it's still a small industry but it's growing, and while Seventh Generation is a great company and definitely better for you and the environment than "traditional" sanitation products, in the long run a cup will do a lot more. (sorry for being off-topic, but it seems like this is the kind of place people would appreciate this)

Back on topic, though... people really need to educated on health risks, so this is a great program :)
