Have you heard About the Red Box Project?
The Red Box Project is an incredible initiative that ensures no young woman misses out on her education because of her period. This community-driven project run by women around the UK relies on people donating sanitary products which are then distributed to local schools via Red Boxes, for young women who may not be able to afford these vital items to access.
The Red Box Project was started in March 2017 by three friends who after reading about ‘Period Poverty’ in the news, were angered that some girls were missing out on their education because they couldn’t afford the sanitary products they needed during their period. Recognising the need for girls to have access to fully stocked boxes of sanitary ware, the team invited women from all over the country to be part of this movement. Now many young women across the country have access to a red box in their school where they can take the products they need for their period.
You can also show your support by buying a ticket for a special screening of Lady Bird showing at the Bussey Building Rooftop Film Club to help raise donations for this amazing project.
