Weʼre raising £150 to kickstart The Red Box Project Putney to provide sanitary ware for girls in Putney schools and combat period poverty.

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.
Period Poverty in the UK is a very real issue which Red Box Project is endeavouring to tackle through raising awareness of the issue by promotion of this community initiative.
This community project quietly aims to ensure that no young women misses school or experiences panic/anxiety or embarrassment because she has her period. We also want to stop young girls having to make do with wadded up toilet paper or socks, or spend their day worrying that they may leak because they can’t afford to have enough pads/tampons to cover all of the days of their period.
We want to make sure that young women have enough sanitary products to last their whole periods-not just a pad/tampon until the end of the school day.
Can you help the young women in our local area?
Can you tell your own friends about this project and invite them to join in and contribute? Can you keep a red box in your office and collect donations for us to collect each month?
Donating the price of just one cup of coffee could help us purchase 2 packs of pads and help us restock each month.
