S MCR (my business) is joining forces with @forbabyandme
(Claire Currie) and supporting food banks in the South Manchester and Altrincham area with the focus on feminine hygiene products. I'm asking adventurers at all my classes this term to bring a "soapbox" (shoebox) filled with products to raise awareness of feminine hygiene poverty, local foodbanks and support local women. If you can also get on your ‘soapbox’ and speak to local businesses about sponsoring a box or two.....go for it, because we may take for granted our hygiene toiletries but to others they’re luxuries that they can’t afford.
Hygiene Poverty is on the the rise in the UK. Clean hair, teeth and skin shouldn’t be a privilege in this country, surely it’s a right.
Feeling clean is fundamental to our self-esteem, dignity and gaining respect from others, so please let’s see what we can achieve as a community/tribe of women this year.
There is a photo of the Soapbox that Claire put together here. It cost her £11 and contains; toothbrushes, paste, deodorant, face wipes, flannel, cotton wool, shower gel, moisturiser, soap, razors,
