Chelsea VonChaz is a stylist turned non-profit CEO who founded her organization, #HappyPeriod, in 2015. #HappyPeriod provides menstrual products to individuals who have low-income and/or may be experiencing homelessness.
After witnessing a homeless woman free-bleeding in Hollywood, CA, Chelsea felt compelled to create a socially-conscious organization that ensures no one goes without menstrual care. Now, she helps to fight the stigma surrounding menstruation. Under Chelsea’s guidance, #HappyPeriod has been praised for its philanthropic efforts by sites like Elite Daily, KCRW and Huffington Post to name a few.
“Presently I am changing the world by running my organization. I’m making the world better for people with periods, one tampon or pad at a time. In the end, I will make a huge change because menstruation won’t be such a taboo. I will make that happen by continuing to push the narrative of period positivity and encouraging girls and women to embrace their periods.”
