I read about Bloody Good Period after it came up on my twitter timeline thanks to Standard Issue Magazine. The website was immediately endearing (I love puns) and the sentiment really struck a cord. Periods are bad enough at the best of times, but the worst of times? Crikey.

I work in fundraising for a small human rights charity, so I emailed Gabby to find out if there was a way I could help that wasn't just a donation, because I know it's quite unusual for small outfits to have dedicated fundraisers, or the time to spend on bringing money and support in. Gabby was super helpful - she knew exactly what she wanted, so that made it easy - and I spent my lunchbreaks and evenings crafting a friendly letter and building a shareable document of storage facilities we could contact. We didn't have to get in touch with that many before we had the best Valentine's message I've ever received, and that message turned into a dedicated storage space in Alexandra Palace SafeStore. Success all round!
