Weʼre raising £150 to Set up three local schools in the Chard/Lyme Regis area with free sanitary products as part of the community project the Red Box Project.
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.
The Red Box Project quietly ensures that no young woman misses school because she has her period.
Working as a nationwide community of women, The Red Box Project seeks to provide free sanitary items for the young women in our local schools.
We are 100% community driven and run by women around the UK. We place constantly stocked Red Boxes of sanitary wear in schools for young women to access, aiming to reach those who may not be able to afford these vital items.
In the UK:
One in ten girls (10 per cent) have been unable to afford sanitary wear
One in seven girls (15 per cent) have struggled to afford sanitary wear
49% of girls have missed an entire day of school because of their period, of which 59% have made up a lie or an alternate excuse
64% of girls have missed a PE or sport because of their period, of which 52% of girls have made up a lie or excuse
Together we can make a difference and end period poverty.
