The Story

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.

YOU DID IT!!!

Thanks to you Project Bleeding Love has met our $2500 goal and we still have THREE days left in the campaign. 

It's been heartwarming to see the outpouring of love and support and I can't wait to share with you guys the results of your efforts.

Right now we're finalizing both our shopping list  and our list of recipients. 

I can't wait to deliver all the products to the organizations we'll be working with, and I'll be sure to keep you all updated on the final tally. 

Once again, from the Very Bottom of Our Hearts, Thank You.

We're $50 from our stated goal of $2500, which means It's almost time for my favorite part! The SHOPPING. 

There's no thrill like dropping a couple of thousand dollars of Pads and Tampons. 

I'll video the excursion so you all can join in the fun. 

Thanks for all your support.
