27638592_1534504690603023_r.jpegElle For Elle is a voluntary organisation that collects bodycare, hair care and cosmetics and donates to women's refuge's and homeless shelters in Chester, Cheshire and Manchester.

We have set up a funding page so people everywhere can donate what they can towards more re-usable bags. 

Our campaign 'Dignity after Distress' is just that! It allows these women to keep hold of the last bit of dignity they have by keeping personal hygiene private and allowing them some 'Me time' after what they've been through. 

Donatations to women in homeless shelters and day centres, are mainly tampons, hair brushes, and dental hygiene. Can you imagine being homeless then your period starts! 

Elle For Elle has given thousands of products to vulnerable women and we know it won't cure the problem but for 10 minutes a day, these women can at least escape, focus and cover their scars and bruises with some decent products that they've not had to steal. 

Our re-usable bags can hold up to 100 products and makes transporting much easier. We swap bags everytime we do a drop off and keep them in rotation.
We’ve run out of bags and desperately need more, this is great because it means we’re growing but our resources are running low. 

This is what we will use the go fund me donations for and all products go direct to women who need it in your own communities.

300 large black bags with our Elle for Elle logo to be made up and shipped to us. 

the bags cost £120 for 50 and the rest for logo adding. It’s not cheap but very worth it as far as keeping plastics to a minimum.
 (If anyone knows of anyone cheaper then please get in touch) 

Thank you for reading
Rachel and Lynette
