Women's Care Packages

A Peacemaking Project by Mikhayla H.

What is the injustice we are solving?

There are far too many women in the U.S. who do not have access to proper feminine products, especially those who are in group domestic violence shelters. In order to relieve some of the financial burden that domestic shelters in Clinton, Iowa have, I am proposing to donate care packages that include feminine products, soaps, skin care, shampoos and other necessities. Not only will this allow the woman to feel comfortable and clean, but it will alleviate some of the costs that the shelter may have.

Hi Mikhayla,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Hi Mikhayla, this is an awesome project. Access to women's hygeine products is such an important issue and it sounds like you're doing important work -- just the kind of thing we want to support!

In fact, here's a story from a similar drive we supported, created by a college student in Indiana: https://www.peacefirst.org/stories/channel-kindness-award-taylor-parker-iupui-student-and-peacemaker

Where are you with your planning, and how can we help?
