Weʼre raising £200 to help ensure all young women have access to sanitary products at school so they do not miss out on their education.
- Portsmouth, 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.
You may recently have seen news reports that disadvantaged young women in the UK are missing school because they have started their period and find it hard to obtain sanitary products.
I have decided to do something about this and signed up as a Coordinator for The Red Box Project, a charitable community group based in Portsmouth.
On behalf of the Project, I will be placing red boxes full of products into local schools and ensuring the boxes remain fully stocked.
The students can go to the designated locations in school, normally the medical room and have access to the red boxes and products they need to ensure they can continue their education without the need to miss days at school.
I hope to be able to put more boxes in more schools and your donations will enable me to do this.

About the fundraiser
I'm a local Portsmouth resident and feel strongly that ALL young women should be able to access sanitary products. For some girls accessing them is a problem due to either financial or social reasons and I feel that as a community we can help.
