Help the Homeless with Hygiene

$335 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 7 months

My name is CW Younger, and I am the founder of For Colored Girls Who Lead. We are an organization dedicated to holistic forms of leadership, uplifting women of color, and sharing our thoughts on what it means to lead. 

One of our fundamental beliefs is reaching back into the community.  In 2105, there were 565,000 homeless people, and women make up a little under 40% of that population. Homeless women face unique obstacles that men do not have to worry about.   A while back, I saw a video about homeless women coping with their periods. (I attached the link if you are interested in watching the video.)
https://www.bustle.com/articles/190092-this-is-how-homeless-women-cope-with-their-periods  As a organization geared toward women, we know that feminine hygiene products are expensive. A woman should not have to choose between eating or feminine hygiene products.

Your money with be used towards purchasing pads, tampons, and wipes to be donated to passed out and donated to women's shelters. Being homeless is already hard, I want to be able to give these women a little bit of comfort and dignity. 

If you can not donate money, but you have pads or tampons that you can donate, please contact me here and leave your contact information.

Thanks to everyone for the donations. These are some of the products that I've purchased. There's not enough room for everything, but I'll post some more photos later this week.
