Homeless women typically know where to find a safe place to sleep or a hot meal to eat. But when it comes to taking care of their feminine hygiene needs, they often have nowhere to turn. Tampons and sanitary pads usually top the list of needs at shelters. But since they are pricy and supporters don’t often donate them, homeless women usually have to do without.
It’s a desperate situation that many homeless women feel resigned to accept.
As a result, The BIZZ Magazine kicked off its campaign ‘Project Saving Grace’. They are looking to helping homeless women by collecting practical items that every woman needs, but are often not available or affordable for those that live on the streets.
Their goal is to walk skid row and visit the LA Mission on Valentine’s Day 2018 and distribute 500 Love Essential Bags to women and girls.
The BIZZ Magazine, founded by Octavia Clayton Smith, is a Personal Event Concierge Magazine, dedicated to empowering event professionals with ideas, intelligence and resources to create amazing experiences for clients. In addition to this, they host much needed fundraising opportunities and other campaigns like Project Saving Grace to help underserved individuals in the community.
Project Saving Grace will be accepting donations until February 9, 2018. How can YOU be part of this extraordinary event?
1. Host a Pink Panty Party
2. Place a bin at your job or church to accept donations.
3. Spread the word!
They are accepting items such as: sanitary napkins of all sizes, panty shields, tampons, adult diapers, travel size lotions, shampoos and conditioners, shower gels, toothpaste, wash cloths, wipes, lipstick, nail polish and remove, scrungies, deodorant and mints in a tin.
