2. A great gift - period. Give a period kit gift (£12)

Nobody should be held back because of their period. But in emergency situations, women and girls are often forced to improvise when managing their periods, which can be dangerous.

That's why our period kit gift can provide essential supplies like sanitary pads, clean underwear and soap for a woman or girl in need.  

At just £12, this gift is the perfect choice for the feminist in your life!

That's why our shelter kit gift can provide a family with essentials like tarpaulins, so they can have a safe place to stay while they rebuild their lives. 

At just £14, you can make a huge difference with this simple gift.
