£1,475raised of £1,250 target by 91 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,250 to fund the Red Box Project York, providing sanitary products for young people who would otherwise miss school due to lack of access to them.

York, United Kingdom

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.


Disadvantaged young people often miss school because they have started their period and find it hard to obtain sanitary products. The key feature of the scheme is that young people who lack easy access to sanitary items are given as many as they need to see them through their period - not just one or two. It has been designed to be sustainable, providing a reliable supply month after month after month. Through regular and one off donations, we aim to provide enough sanitary products to ensure that noone in York has to miss out on their education for such a simple, heartbreaking reason.

    This is a fantastic initiative to support the young women of York. It’s a heartbreaking situation that shouldn’t be happening in our country today.

That young people are still forced to miss school due to embarrassment or lack of funds for sanitary products is shameful. We want to make sure they can access their education all the time, and that no one feels unable to attend school due to being on their period.
