The Story

Philadelphia Woman Joining Forces to Help Women and Children in Need   

Feminine care products are expensive, and supplies are always dwindling at the shelters. We want to help empower women and alleviate their need for necessary and expensive products many of us take for granted.   We have come together as a group to help collect donations and UNOPENED boxes of feminine hygiene products (pads, tampons, panty liners, cups) and DIAPERS for women and children under the care of The Philadelphia Office of Homeless Services. We will continue to collect until June 1, 2018 


To kick off the fundraiser, we are hosting an event on April 28th,  2018 at Connie’s Ric Rac in the Italian Market section of Philadelphia. Join us for an evening of music and women empowerment. We have a great line-up featuring some of Philadelphia's most talented women musicians, singers, artists, and business leaders. Performances will start in the afternoon and will include local performances by:  


Carolyn Thorn, Sonja Sofya, Eve Sheldon, Sarah Bemuiller, Sweetbriar Rose, Hotsy Totsy, Valentina Janie,  Hannah Trav, Miss Fareira, Meghan Cary, Andrea Nardello, Emily Ana Zeitlyn,  Rachel Attebery, Brittany Anne Trambaugh,  Rachel Fogletto, Alyssa Truszkowski, Emily Drinker, The Primaries, Black Horse Motel, Vessna Scheff,  Rhys MacArthur Thompson & The Finance Boys  


Tickets are $10 at the door, with a $5 discount if you donate an unopened product. More is always welcome, as it goes toward buying more products in bulk for the shelters. We are accepting monetary donations for those who can’t make it but wish to contribute at: www.youcaring.com/femmefreedom
