    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    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 Sheffield. 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 go.

    £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, we could create 16 period packs which would cover everything needed for a woman during one menstrual cycle or 27 pairs of period pants.

    What we would like to work towards is providing 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.

    Thank-you for taking the time to read about us and thank-you for all the continued help and support we receive.

      Hi There, it’s been a month since our page ended and I would love to share with you how much of a difference your donations made. We were able to supply 7 reusable period backs which have a minimum lifespan of 5 years, so that’s 7 people with worry free periods for the foreseeable future 🎉 Thank you again for all your support and what a great start we have had to the new year for the people of South Yorkshire and surrounding area. Many thanks and best wishes Sarah & Natalie Team Capp

      Thank you to each and everyone of you. Without you we wouldn’t be able to continue the work we do. What a great start to 2020 for us. 2019 saw a massive increase in the number of organisations we work with and a number of new collection points for product donations and 2020 is set to be a good year for CAPP!

      We are currently just £5 away from being able to provide someone with a reusable period pack; meaning ending period poverty for them. That may not seem like a lot but when we started CAPP we did it with the intention of making a difference to the women & girls of South Yorkshire 1 period at a time. Along side the fundraiser we do are continuing to get out many needed period packs and underwear to the organisations we support. Any amount helps us, since I made the change to reusable pads I have still bought disposables & donated them to CAPP.

      Most of us take sanitary products for granted. Such a worthy cause.

    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.
