    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.

    Story

    We are a community based initiative called Red Box Project East Kent, which aims to provide free sanitary items for young women who may not be able to access them..

    We provide red boxes filled with menstrual products to schools and other educational settings. In the future we may at our discretion, choose to provide red boxes to other groups or spaces where we feel that girls suffering from disadvantage could benefit from free menstrual products. Girls who might not otherwise have access to such products are able to take what they need from the box. We also provide brown paper bags (for discretion) and spare pants for any girl who may need them.

    We are primarily focussed on alleviating period poverty in the Deal, Sandwich, Dover and Thanet areas. We may in the future also provide red boxes to schools in other areas of Kent, or provide support to other Red Box Projects across the UK, if we have the capacity to do so.

    In order to provide red boxes to schools, we collect menstrual products via donation boxes in local businesses and through occasional/one-off collections organised by us or our supporters. We also raise cash funds to assist in buying more boxes, purchasing the menstrual items we have a shortage of, pants, paper bags and occasional printing costs.

    In the event the Red Box East Kent project ceases, all donations will be split between the local food banks and our sister Red Box Projects.

    We are coordinated by Christine Tonks who lives in Woodnesborough.
