What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

We aim to quietly ensure that no young woman misses school or suffers embarrassment because she has her period.

We know that schools already do what they can in this area. We want to step up as a community to give you the peace of mind that your stocks will never run out and enable you to support disadvantaged young women throughout their period.

The Red Box 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 a red box filled with sanitary towels and spare pants. The box is kept with the school Nurse, at Reception or with an appropriate member of staff. Posters are also available to be placed in the girls' toilets encourage a young woman in need of sanitary items to ask for the red box and take what she needs. Plain bags are included for discretion.

No tearful panics in the loo. No wadded up toilet roll. No anxious embarrassment. No missed lessons or staying home.
