Period poverty is a deeply saddening fact of life for many women across the United Kingdom. 1 in 10 cannot afford adequate sanitary wear and so are having to use old socks, rags and even plastic bags.
Preventing Period Poverty is a non-profit organisation run by two wonderfully dedicated 17 year old girls, on a mission to educate and help those living in period poverty.
This Story and Preventing Period Poverty have teamed up to design a piece of jewellery that not only tells a story and helps spread the word, it helps homeless women across the UK have safer, more hygienic periods. 60% of profits made from the sale of this necklace will go towards distributing sanitary wear to homeless shelters across London and UK.
The Bleeding Heart necklace has been lovingly hand-carved from wax and cast into sterling silver.
Please kindly allow for a two week lead time. Although I always try my best to get your item to you before then.
