A message from Yas and James
We don't own our own home, and will be leaving the country again shortly after our wedding. As a result, instead of asking for a toaster, we'd love to use this opportunity to raise money for charities we care about, and that we think do amazing work.
Bloody Good Period! distributes period supplies to asylum seekers, refugees those who can’t afford them.
This charity shouldn’t have to exist, but period poverty is a big problem in the UK. Those unable to afford to buy products make do with toilet paper, socks or nothing at all, and young women miss school every month when their period comes. This is happening in the UK. Sanitary products are expensive but essential.
With the money we raise, we will buy the period products that those in need want, and send them directly to Bloody Good Period to be distributed.
If you don’t donate, but still want to make a difference to end period poverty...
Sign a petition to provide girls on free school meals, free period products. Or get involved with The Red Box Project in your local area. They provide free sanitary wear in schools to ensure girls in the UK don’t miss school when they are on their period.
