Our goal is to connect with 300 compassionate individuals willing to give: 

  • An ongoing monthly donation of $25

Addressing Period Poverty

Lindsay James

"Addressing period poverty is not just a matter of dignity but one of equity and empowerment. The Red Basket project's initiative of providing period products to agencies across our community, means that some who menstruate might not need to miss school because they cannot afford costly menstrual products. It means a family might be able to put more food on the table because the cost of necessary period products has been removed. I cannot be more proud of the women behind the Red Basket and the work they do."

“In today's world, access to feminine hygiene products  should NOT be a barrier to  a woman's health or education.  I support the Red Basket Project  of  Dubuque  for helping to bring this issue to light. When I think about the youth of today and how they will be the leaders of tomorrow, I wonder what they will think of us - the ones who through our actions, have taught them how to lead? Have we taught them to lead with compassion? Hats off to The Red Basket Project for teaching us how to lead.”

"Providing something as basic and essential as period products is an act of love and shows respect for all those who menstruate. Once we became aware of the dire situation in our community and the great need for period products, it was impossible to look away. We should be able to manage our periods hygienically and without stigma regardless of personal or financial circumstances. It is a matter of health and a matter of dignity."
