Project Bleeding Love's mission is to supply Chicago's homeless population with feminine hygiene supplies.
Given the choice between spending money received that day on food and sanitary supplies, homeless women have reported using socks, cotton balls, rolled up tissues and even newspaper to collect blood while menstruating, which in turns often results in infections, rashes, and additional hygiene concerns.
Last year we raised $1500 and on Valentine's Day, we were able to distribute to over 50 women with three months of supplies of feminine hygiene products including, tampons, sanitary napkins, vaginal cream, feminine wash, hot water bottles, Midol, and chocolate.
This year we're hoping to explore more sustainable options like Period Underwear, Menstrual Cups, and Reusable Cloth Pads... and chocolate. (Hey, it's Valentine's Day)
Distribution Day with once again is Valentine's Day so we're going to close donations on Feb 10th.
Please Donate and Share the Love.
