Weʼre raising £200 to combat period poverty by setting up and running boxes of sanitary products for girls in schools around Leicester - The Red Box Project.
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.
Welcome to the Red Box Project, an initiative that quietly ensures that no young woman misses out on her education because of her period. We are 100% community driven and run by women around the UK. We place constantly stocked Red Boxes of sanitary wear in schools for young women to access, aiming to reach those who may not be able to afford these vital items.
A survey by Always revealed that 137,700 school girls across the UK regularly miss school because they can’t afford sanitary products.
I am aiming to set up and run the first Red Box in Leicester and need your support to do this. Thank you!
