One in ten girls in the UK are unable to afford sanitary wear, while 12% must resort to improvised methods which are unhygienic and UNSAFE!
As well as an issue of affordability, stigma and taboo's around periods make it difficult for girls to come forward with their problems - almost half of young girls are embarrassed by their periods, leading to a massive 78% feeling awkward or embarrassed to purchase sanitary products. And staggeringly, 49% of girls in the UK miss an entire day of school each year due to their periods.
A donation of just £2 can see someone through a period they may not be able to afford. 100% of the donation will be used to provide sanitary wear for those who struggle to on a monthly basis.
