The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2017

The goal is simple: to bring hygiene products and support to homeless folks in Detroit. I have contacted numerous shelters and partnered with Planned Parenthood to make this all happen, but the need for these products is far more overwhelming than I could have ever imagined. Donations to shelters often include clothing, bedding, footwear, and basic toiletries (combs, shampoo, toothbrushes), but rarely do people ever think to donate tampons, pads, or other alternatives. Because of how expensive these items are and the shame associated with asking a complete stranger for relief, women are often left to improvise with unsanitary materials which can cause infection or other complications. Shoplifting is another option some women are forced to turn to. I want to help stop the perpetuation of this cycle and with your help... With donated funds I plan to: - Purchase pads, tampons, and panty liners in bulk. - Distribute donated pamphlets from Planned Parenthood that cover many sexual health and wellness issues. For now, I need your help to jumpstart this! Much love. Lauren <3>
