The Women4Women campaign has only one goal: to improve the lives of homeless women by providing feminine hygiene products to shelters throughout the world.
Women who have no access to feminine hygiene products (FHP) have an increased chance of getting infections or diseases, and the emotional strain of living or working without access to these products is enormous.
There are two aspects to W4W - monetary donation and product donation. Monetary donation involves donating to this CrowdRise fundraiser (all proceeds will go directly to Camions of Care - http://www.camionsofcare.org OR the related charity of your choice). Product donations are up to you! This part of the fundraiser involves a participant to directly donate some form of FHP to a local shelter. We ask that you provide a picture of this act to add to the campaign so we can show involvement, but of course it is not necessary.
Where is the money going?
All proceeds will go directly to Camions of Care. OR if you want your donation to go directly to a charity of your choice fighting for the same cause, please name that organization in the comments section of your donation and we will make sure it gets to them directly!
Camions of Care is an organization dedicated to delivering FHP to women in need all around the world. Every $2 (USD) will provide enough products for one menstrual cycle for a woman. You can learn more about them at their website: http://www.camionsofcare.org.
What if I can't donate?
That is completely okay! We do ask that if you cannot donate then you spread the word so that we can reach as many people as possible.
