Red Box Project Whangarei
Red Box Project collects donations of period products and undies from the community and puts them into red boxes to give to local schoolsNorthland
A wee introduction...
Founded in the UK in 2017, the Red Box Project is branching out to Whangārei, Aotearoa! The aim is to tackle the increasing issue of period poverty in our community.
Problem: In New Zealand, some young women in our schools are finding it difficult to access sanitary products.
Result: Tearful panics in the loo. Wadded up toilet roll. Anxious embarrassment. Missed lessons. Missed education.
Solution: The Red Box Project collects donations of sanitary products and undies from members of our community and puts them into red boxes to give to local schools. The Red Box Project supports disadvantaged young women throughout their entire period.
Community driven - Donations are given in the community, for the community!
Use of funds
Purchase of red boxes for donations and schools, underwear to use for emergency packs, and sanitary items where required (although we largely rely on donations).
We currently have boxes at Whangarei Girls High, Kamo High, Tiki High, Whangarei Intermediate. We are also waiting to hear back from other 8 primary schools

It's been a year now since we started the RBP in Whangārei and we now supply 9 schools (including Primary Schools) with free period products.
We are looking to start moving towards providing period undies as a more long term, sustainable solution and all donations received for the rest of 2019 will go directly towards these.
FundraiseYou can start a fundraiser to have your own page that raises money directly for the beneficiary.
