Freedom Cups

$942 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 9 months
Hello! Thank you for stopping by our page!

We are here to help raise money to provide reusable menstruation cups to 1,000 homeless women here in the Los Angeles area.

This year I was asked to come up with a community project and while I was thinking of what I wanted to do I remembered this video I saw about this homeless woman and the struggles she faced while having to take care of herself while on her period and being unable to afford tampons or pads. This was something that never even dawned on me that could be a problem for homeless women, and from the people I've spoken with about this project, it's something not many people have ever thought about. Aren't we lucky! 

These women often times have to use trash or have to spend time close to a public restroom to make sure they can clean themselves and use toilet paper in place of sanitary products. This can restrict her daily freedoms and can also add even more stress to her already stressful life. A woman should not have to choose to buy tampons over food.

What we are aiming to do is provide these women with reusable menstruation cups. Just like their name says, these cups are reusable. This is something that she can keep with her month after month that will give her her freedom back! They're also great for the environment! 

We are working with women's shelters around the city so that they can share these cups with their clients. 

Share the love by donating today and helping these women! Check out this video by Bustle to learn more! XO

We have partnered up with Safe Place for Youth in LA and once we raise enough money for 250 cups we'll be able to set up shop at the center and speak to women about the benefits of the cup and give them one to take with them!

Ran into a few speed bumps with trying to find shelters to donate too, but yesterday I spoke with 'Period Movement' (another group getting menstruation products to homeless women in the PNW) and she shared with me tips on working with shelters. She is also donating 20 cups to our fundraiser! Yay! Making progress!
