Happy November, everyone!
As always, we hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy!
We can’t believe it is already November! We are eternally grateful for all the support we have received this past year. Our team has faced so many exciting changes this year and we are still learning how to navigate through it all! We have had relocations, new additions to our team, and even more partnership opportunities.
We are so excited to share all the great service from our Fulfilling Destiny family. We would not be able to make a difference without your help and support! Keep reading to find out how to get involved this holiday season!
We are so excited to share all the amazing work from our FD Family in October and the first week of November. We are so thankful for the community we’ve built through Fulfilling Destiny. Our volunteers, staff, and supporters mean so much to us! Read all about them below!
First, we would like to express our appreciation to SDSU Graduate students, Mariya and Tanya, and Dr. Record for organizing 2 Packing Parties. They held their second Packing Party on the SDSU campus in early October. Between the 2 Packing Parties, they packed over 20,000 period products! Thank you Mariya, Tanya, and everyone who helped!
We would also like to thank Mrs. Linda Martin for her tireless efforts with Fulfilling Destiny. Mrs. Martin is the mother of one of our lovely staff members, Bridget. Mrs. Martin lives out of town, but whenever she comes to visit her daughter and her grandchildren, she also helps with Fulfilling Destiny. We always look forward to her positive energy and warm heart. Thank you, Mrs. Martin, we are deeply grateful for your support!
Dignity Bag Pick-ups!
Diana and her husband, Alex, hosted their own Packing Party. They packed 100 Dignity Bags (DB) for us! Thank you both for investing time to assemble DBs, we appreciate you!
Abby and her dad, Pastor William, picked up roughly 9,000+ period products for their Packing Party happening this November! We love to see our community come together for Packing Parties, thank you for helping us spread
Check out our lovely team member, Jan-Marini! Jan was the host of The FD Podcast and spear-headed our partnership with Altrusa! She is pictured below, picking up 50 Dignity Bags for an event put together to help those experiencing houselessness. This is a collaboration with Altrusa, SWC, and Jags Kitchen. Gabby Sanchez, who has held numerous packing parties for FD, packed the 50 tampon DB for this event. Thank you both for your hard work!
Dignity Bag Distributions!
Take a look at some pictures from this month’s distributions! We distributed to Areta Crowell Wellness Recovery Center, Rachel’s Women’s Center, Sharia’s Closet and TAY Academy of San Diego Youth Services!
We are eternally grateful for everyone’s support in pushing our mission. Your help has allowed us to broaden our reach to more menstruators in our SD/SJ communities. We would not be able to provide free products within our communities without your help!
New Partnerships to look out for:
Recently, we developed a partnership with Studio Bloom, a gym that provides circuit training, strength training, personal training, healing
We are also partnering with Alexa, owner of the online boutique @_retro_flex_.She will be donating a percentage of select sales back to Fulfilling Destiny. We are so appreciative of your kindness and generosity, and we are excited about this new partnership!
Our new logo + T-shirts!
As a menstrual product outreach, our work at Fulfilling Destiny revolves around inclusivity. Our fight for menstrual equity includes all folks who menstruate. We are retiring our previous logo which fails to acknowledge the diverse population that experiences menstruation. We no longer use the term, “feminine” when referring to period products because not all women menstruate and not all menstruators are women.
We are giving away Fulfilling Destiny t-shirts with our new logo for every $25 donation for the first 20 donors!

Check out our new logo below! This change means so much to our organization as inclusivity stands as one of our core values that drives our work.
