Launch of Gift Wellness Foundation to Tackle Period Poverty
Thanks to the support of our compassionate customers who care so deeply about helping women who are homeless, in refugee camps, on low incomes or in school and cannot access sanitary products, we have donated over 3 million sanitary pads so far.
We believe that Gift Wellness customers are just amazing! Here at Gift Wellness, we all get really excited when we see that an order has come in that includes the purchase of pads to donate to women in crisis. It's a win-win for everyone involved, the women who buy Gift pads and benefit from them in so many ways; and the women who are relieved to receive pads when they're in a desperate situation.
So every time you buy Gift pads, remember that you're doing something wonderful!
Many customers were asking us how else they could support this important work and others asked if they could donate. This all led to a decision to launch a specific registered charity called The Gift Wellness Foundation (GWF), the primary objective of which is to eradicate period poverty. A new website has been set up www.periodpoverty.uk where you can find out all about the work of the GWF and get actively involved.
If you know of a local charity, foodbank or homeless shelter that may need our pads for local women in crisis, please get let our Period Poverty team know (giving your details and the location of the organisation) at firstname.lastname@example.org
