Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Period poverty is a real and present danger.
Since 2015, Sanya and Sophie have been all across the country, collecting donations and raising funds for homeless shelters and women's refuges.
Every month, many homeless women endure a period without menstrual products. These women are forced into humiliating and often life-threatening situations without access to these products. The government does not currently give an allowance to shelters for menstrual products, although they do for condoms and razors for men. This further perpetuates the myth that our periods are a luxury. As a result of this, shelters rely on donations of menstrual products.
For campaign #11, we are supporting St. Albans and Hertsmere Women's Refuge . SAHWR aims to provide a safe comfortable, conflict free environment for women and women with children who are suffering domestic abuse. They give advice and support on available options so as to enable a woman to make informed choices, feel more confident and take control of her and her children’s lives and future. The Refuge offers just that, a refuge from abuse; a place of safety.
As well as our normal donation drive, very excitingly we are hosting our first ever ABGC Fun Quiz on April 27th to raise even more donations! Wonderful Quizmaster Jeff Owen got in touch with us last year and generously offered us his quiztastic services: stay tuned for more information about the quiz shortly!
Thanks for all your continued generosity and support! If you aren’t able to donate this time, we would still love it if you could spread the word about our campaign to your family and friends! If you'd like to find out more about what we do, check out our blog .
