go;Itit;Period poverty is a far greater problem than most people realise. Myself and Natalie are dedicated to help to end It. For the past year we have collected and distributed sanitary and hygiene products to small charitable organisations, food banks, refuges and shelters. We have grown at an astounding rate and after speaking to the people who benefit from these donations first hand we have realised that the need for further help is substantial. We rely on donations of products to run CAPP. We are always looking for help and fundraising is the next step to sustainability and ensure an end to period poverty for the female community in and around Sheffie. Our target is simple, the money raised will buy sanitary products which will be distributed to those in need
To give you an idea of how these funds can help below is a breakdown of how far our target will goOr
£250 can help us greatly. it could buy 1500 disposable tampons or 3000 disposable sanitary towels. It could provide 14 reusable period cups which have a lifespan of 10 years meaning we can end period poverty for 14 women or girls. Or we can create 16 period packs which would cover everything needed for a woman during one menstrual cycle. Or 27 pairs of period pants. Or what we would like to work towards it could provide our first 5 reusable menstrual kits which would include menstrual cups, pads and reusable wipes guaranteeing a woman or girls period is dignified for at least 4 years.

Campaign Against Period Poverty is a charitable organisation founded by Sarah Kosky and Natalie Walker. We started CAPP after being exposed to the widespread need for free period products in our community. Many women and young girls simply cannot afford sanitary products.
