Wow, the crowdfunder has closed - thank you to everyone who pledged and shared the crowdfunder with their followers and friends. We didn't quite make our target, but we are feeling very happy and proud that our first ever crowdfunder achieved £6,144 with 175 supporters. We have had some wonderful inspiring messages over the last 6 weeks.
But it doesn't end there!
The Environmenstrual Campaign has only just got started! We are continuing to fundraise, to get more Environmenstrual Workshops out there to schools and universities and to get a free period toolkit available for all to use. Plus the Environmenstrual Coalition of activists and organisations continues to grow - 29 to date. We have an exciting Week of Action to organise too - keep checking back for more info.
So in the meantime, please keep sharing the campaign and encouraging everyone to donate.

What are we raising funds for?
Our Environmenstrual Campaign is multi-faceted but we are crowdfunding for these two key areas:
- We plan to launch an Environmenstrual Workshop Programme in schools and universities across the UK. We are going to train people to become Environmenstrual Ambassadors, that you too can be part of. We will design an Environmenstrual Toolkit that can used as a resource by schools free of charge. PLUS We aim to create an Information Pack that is available for everyone to access, to give a truly informed choice.
- We are coordinating a coalition of organizations and businesses to come together in a Environmenstrual Week of Action – this will include events, film screenings, a period themed fashion show, coffee mornings, DIY pad making workshops to name a few.
