Weʼre raising £100 to end period poverty for disadvantaged women in the UK.
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.
Problem: 27% of girls in the UK have overused a sanitary product because they couldn't afford a fresh one.
We are the only UK organisation seriously tackling period poverty in schools on a national scale and we aim to quietly ensure that no young woman misses school or suffers embarrassment because she has her period. No tearful panics in the loo. No wadded up toilet roll. No anxious embarrassment. No missed lessons or staying home.
We are collecting donations to buy sanitary products, put them into red plastic boxes with paper bags and pants, and then put the boxes into schools for their disadvantaged students to use.
Any donation are welcomed so we can end period poverty in the UK.
