Thanks to the generosity of our speakers, a number of charities will receive donations as a result of Fundraising Everywhere.
Here are the charities that will benefit this year…

Bloody Good Period
Bloody Good Period was started by Gabby Edlin, who decided something needed to be done to create a sustainable flow (pun intended) of menstrual products for those who can’t afford to buy them. What started as a whip-round on Facebook is now a growing enterprise with a vision to end period poverty. We are now partnered with 40 asylum seeker drop-in centres, helping more people to have bloody good periods.
