Weʼre raising £200 to support The Red Box Project Luton- helping to ensure no young woman misses out on school because she can’t afford mentrual hygiene products
- Luton, 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: In the UK, some young women in our schools are finding it difficult to access sanitary products.
Result: Tearful panics in the loo. Wadded up toilet roll. Anxious embarrassment. Stains and leaks. Missed lessons. Missed education.
Solution: Generous donors from the community sponsor and stock a red box filled with sanitary products and spare pants.
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.
The project gives young women in need - whether for financial or social reasons - the reassurance of enough sanitary protection for their entire period plus a couple left over for next time, not just to get them through the day.
It works by putting a red box filled with pads and pants into schools. Students take what's needed, and then it gets topped up again, with donations from the community supporting the project.
This is a very simple, no frills project and is entirely funded by community kindness to promote the health and dignity of disadvantaged young woman.
Some of our community supporters prefer to donate a cash sum, rather than purchase actual products for our boxes. All donations, in either form, are gratefully received- big or small.
Your kind donations will currently support the supply of 3 schools in Luton with our Red Boxes! This covers the purchase of sanitary protection, spare underwear, red donation boxes and school boxes and the printing of school posters and donation point literature.
