Weʼre raising £200 to Trying to kick start the Red Box Rochdale Project which will help provide free sanitary wear for disadvantaged girls throughout their period
- Rochdale, 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.
The Red Box Project Rochdale is a simple scheme, made with love for the young women in our community.
We aim to quietly ensure that no young woman in Rochdale misses school or suffers embarrassment because they have their period.
The project gives young women in need - whether for financial or social reasons - the reassurance of enough sanitary pads for their entire period plus a couple left over for next time. This is what makes it special.
We sponsor and stock red boxes in schools filled with sanitary towels and spare pants. No tearful panics in the loo. No wadded up toilet roll. No anxious embarrassment. No missed lessons or staying home.
This project has been designed to be sustainable, providing a supply to a school month after month.
What We Need / How Can You Help?
We are looking to initially raise £200 to kick start the Rochdale Redbox Project and buy boxes for donations and collections, sanitary wear, pants, bags and stationary/printing.
• You can donate here!
• Have a collection point at your work place, shop, church, group, community place etc.
• Become part of our community group – commit to donating one pack of suitable pads every month plus some appropriate girls pants twice a year? If you are interested email with your number or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Purchase us something off our Amazon wish list
• Could your company assist with our printing?
• Follow us on Facebook & Twitter - like and share our page
Please spread the word tell people about our project .
We hope you will help us it just seems ridiculous for this to be happening on our doorstep, if lots of us pull together and each gives a little on a regular basis, we can quietly and firmly put an end to this problem woman to young woman.
We will be organising community Drop-Off points soon and will post below when we have these sorted.
Let’s get this project started!
Your kindness does matter, anything you can do to help is appreciated.
Thank you x
