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.
Women in the North East urgently need sanitary products!
It's a luxury that we don't even consider at that time of the month, we can just go into a shop and buy what we need. For some women it is a choice between feeding themselves or their families and buying a box of tampax.
Any monetary donations will be used to buy: tampons, sanitary towels, feminine hygiene wipes, new clean underwear and zip lock bags (to put the items in).
These will all be donated to a local support group for them to be distributed to the women who need them.
Any support is gratefully received, every penny counts!
Thank you very much!

Interesting fact: Sanitary products are taxed at extortionate rates because they are deemed a luxury item... however TESCO are paying this tax for their customers so you should be able to get your monthly supplies cheaper here than elsewhere!
