£30raised of £200 target by 1 supporter

Weʼre raising £200 to Support 'BLODDY GOOD PERIOD' who provide menstrual supplies to asylum seekers, refugees & those who can't afford them.

What is crowdfunding?

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.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

The average lifetime cost of having a period is approximately £4800*

*£4 on tampons, £4 on pads, plus £2 panty liners = £10 x 12 months x 40 years = £4800

Asylum Seekers receive a paltry £37.75 per week to live on.

Contrary to what some media outlets would have you believe, they are not allowed to work, and cannot claim any benefits. On top of all this, many people seeking asylum have incredibly heavy periods due to the stress and trauma of being displaced.  Many resort to using toilet paper, scraps of fabric, or nothing at all. 

We want to alleviate period poverty by giving these products to those who can't afford them, and changing the conversation by, you know, just talking opening about periods.
