£131raised of £200 target by 13 supporters

Weʼre raising £200 to provide all the items we need to support girls in period poverty in our area, through local schools.

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

1 in 10 girls in the UK have been unable to afford sanitary wear. 12% have had to improvise sanitary wear because they can't afford proper items. Nearly half of girls have missed an entire day of school because of their period, of which 59 per cent have made up an alternate excuse. The Red Box Project is a community group that aims to tackle period poverty by providing local schools with red boxes full of sanitary products, so that girls who can't access sanitary wear at home can get it for free. We are hoping to raise some funds to help us buy the boxes and bins we need for donation points, the paper bags we include in the boxes for discretion, posters, banners and other items to help raise awareness and donations!

About the fundraiser
The Red Box Project Rugby

The Red Box Project Rugby

Rugby, UK

I am the local coordinator for The Red Box Project Rugby. I am appalled that girls living in the UK in the 21st century are having to worry about how they can afford sanitary wear. It's a basic human right and something we can all do something about.
