Weʼre raising £500 to Place more Red Boxes into Schools in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale to support more girls experiencing period poverty.

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Period poverty is a growing problem in the UK with a recent study evidencing that 1 in 10 girls are unable to afford menstrual products. In Rochdale 1/3 of children are living in poverty and in some wards this is even higher. We know through our work that period poverty is happening in our towns and in our schools.

I am crowdfunding for The Red Box Project Rochdale, It is a not for profit community project that relies solely on kind donations, it is a simple scheme, made with love for the young women in our community.

What we aim

To quietly ensure that no young woman in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale misses school or suffers embarrassment because they have their period.

Giving 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.

We sponsor and stock Red Boxes in schools filled with towels, tampons, spare pants and tights.

 No tearful panics in the loo

 No wadded up toilet roll

 No anxious embarrassment.

 No missed lessons or staying home.

We are currently supporting 15 local schools and 2 community groups and we want and need to support more. Our ultimate aim is to have a Red Box in every school in our Borough.

What we need / How can you help?

Any funds raised will be used to pay for boxes, pants, tights and stationary/printing, brown paper bags and everything that is not donated. The more money we raise the more young women in need we are able to reach.

What can you do?

• Please Donate here - no amount is too small

• Facebook - like and share our page

• Twitter - follow us and retweet our tweets

• Spread the word - tell people about our project and aims

We hope you will help us , it seems ridiculous for this to be happening on our doorstep, if lots of us pull together and each give a little on a regular basis, we can quietly and firmly put an end to this problem.

Your kindness does matter, anything you can do to help is appreciated.

Thank you in advance x
