Regular donator and all round champion @anjanewby sends us a package before pretty much every drop! And they're always colour co ordinated! So cute and so needed. Thank you!!! We can't do what we do without our dedicated supporters!! #periodswithoutshame #supportwomensrights #theroughperiod πŸ’–πŸ’š

Lots of undies and toiletries for our ladies! Thank you so much Erin!! You're a legend! #supportwomensrights #periodswithoutshame #theroughperiod πŸ’–πŸ’š

If you've switched to cups or reusable products please send us all your disposable items! We need them for our ladies sleeping rough in Sydney. Thank you so much Georgia for ensuring these products found their way to women in need! #periodswithoutshame #supportwomensrights #theroughperiod πŸ’–πŸ’š

Australia needs to catch up and catch on to emerging trends that support minority groups. It's not good enough that we hold on to racist, sexist, homophobic ideologies in the 21st century.
We have girls missing school because of their period, with no access to proper sanitation, schools or that don't provide the bare minimum for sanitary hygiene, women that have no where to go to change because they are sleeping rough and most don't have no access to sanitary items and can't afford them.
Then to add insult to injury Australia has decided to chuck a tax on sanitary items to make life 10% harder.
We have the chance to be progressive and tackle these issues and set global standards, instead we break up communities, force our indigenous populations to go without, and make people feel ashamed of who they are. Australia, you stink!

To this entire crew, we are beyond words at your support, participation and generosity! Your mad skills and talents and dedication to helping our sister have raised us over $13,000 and he most money we have ever had!!! We have big plans for this donation and every cent will go toward helping women and girls in need. THANK YOU @notjustagirl_flashday
