Period supplies are not cheap. But they are essential.
Bloody Good Period gives menstrual supplies to asylum seeker drop-in centres and food banks in London and the UK.
They work tirelessly to end period poverty on the ground by giving these products to those who can’t afford them, and providing long term menstrual education to those less likely to access it.
The average lifetime cost of having a period is approximately £4800.
At Bloody Good Period, they think it’s madness (and we agree) that sanitary products are not free for those who can’t afford them.
Asylum Seekers receive a paltry £36 per week to live on.
Contrary to what some media outlets would have you believe, they are not allowed to work, and cannot claim any benefits. On top of all this, many women seeking asylum have incredibly heavy periods due to the stress and trauma of being displaced. Many resort to using toilet paper, scraps of fabric, or nothing at all.
In order to support such a fantastic charity we are donating £25 from each Special Edition “Liberty, Equality, Sorority” Breton shirt available to buy online now.
It’s been a pretty seminal year for women, we don’t need to tell you that and we want to celebrate by creating a top dedicated to female empowerment. We also recognise that there are a lot of women that need our love and support, hence our collaboration with Bloody Good Period. Buying one Limited Edition shirt, could pay for over 250 sanitary pads for girls and women that cannot afford to buy menstrual supplies for themselves. We think that’s bloody good, period!
