    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    With this money I am planning to be able to buy and provide sanitary items for homeless women who may not be able to afford to spend what little money they have on sanitary towels and tampons. These will then be donated to local homeless shelters as a safe and dignified place these women can go for their items, and may take some strain off the homeless charity itself and allow for their money to be spent on better helping these women in other ways.

      Update from the Page owner

      I will be purchasing all of the sanitary items this week to take to the homeless shelter. I have also been in talks with a national group off the back of this little project and I am going to be the representative for Sheffield and Rotherham! Thank you so much to everybody who helped 😊♥️ xx

      These is only one month to go, and I would really appreciate if people took the time to simply share this. It's a cause I feel very strongly about, because it's a factor that is often ignored when we think about the homeless. Often we think of hunger, of the cold... Not whether to go hungry or to buy sanitary items.

      Thank you to those who have donated and/ or shared this page so far!! I am thinking of calling this project the "little red bag" in the hopes of getting enough support to be able to create individual bags containing pads, tampons and disposable bags for waste items that will be presented in a little red bag for easy collection.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
