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.


Hi everyone,

As most of you know I will be spending 3 months in East Africa later this year and want to raise funds for MOON-CUPS!

Mooncups are a good solution to improve menstrual hygiene for young women in Rwanda and keep them in schools each month! For those of you that have not heard of a moon cup please check it out -

1 moon cup is approx. £15 ..... more money = more cups = more lives improved.

Any extra money raised will be spent on school resources for children's education which I will distribute in the local primary school. And scarfs which will be given to new mums after birth in the local maternity unit, where I will be volunteering as a midwife.


Much Love - Lauren x

    Thank you everyone who has donated so far, I’ve raised 1/2 my target... if anyone else is able to donate to provide moon cups for girls in Rwanda there is still time!! Period poverty is happening all over the world and affects the life and education of many girls/women. I will Be spending a month in Rwanda working with a local school to distribute the moon-cups. X
