Weʼre raising £1,000 to donate to The Red Box Project. Help girls in schools across the UK access free sanitary products.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Thanks for visiting our JustGiving page.
For our 5th annual picnic we've decide to support and fundraise for The Red Box Project.
Shockingly, 1 in 10 girls between the ages of 14 and 21 in the UK have been unable to afford sanitary products, while 49% have missed an entire day of school because of their period, according to research by Plan International.
The Red Box Project quietly ensures that no young person misses school because they have their period.
Working as a nationwide community, The Red Box Project seeks to provide free menstrual products for the young people in our local schools.
In the past, we've raised over £4600 with donations going to MacMillan, Birmingham Children's Hospital, Shelter and most recently Chrons and Cholitis thanks to all of our gorgeous picnic attendees donations and of course the most amazing donations of gifts and vouchers from so many large and independent companies out there - from the bottom our hearts we can not thank you enough!
Date: 3rd August
Time: 12pm till 4pm
Location: Hyde Park London
Meeting spot: Marble Arch at 11:45, where we can then march over as a group and find a prime spot to enjoy the day
Remember: Bring a picnic, bring some food and bring yourself!
