A fifteen year-old boy who takes sanitary pads to school everyday inspires other lads to bring tampons to school.
Why? Cuban Jose Garcia, who lives in Miami, says it is to help female classmates who might run out. His post on Instagram pleading with other boys to do the same thing quickly went viral with 21,000 likes.
Jose wrote: “To every boy that follows me and calls himself a man or simply a good human being.
“(This is a) petition for all of us to start bringing a couple pads or tampons to school to help our girl friends.
“If you have a girlfriend or are friends with a girl, u should know that they do not always have tampons or pads on them, or that sometimes their period just hits them without notice and have a bit of a problem finding one.
“We should support them with this, after all, we don’t have to go trough all they they do because of menstruation, so it’s just logical that we help them.
Do you think this is a good idea?
