It is that time of year for GU Red Alert's 3rd annual charity WASHBAG APPEAL!
We're asking you to buy a washbag & fill it with hygiene essentials, with an emphasis on sanitary products, which we will then donate on your behalf to the Govanhill Women's Project, who use them as a welcome pack to homeless
women joining their service. Last year's donations lasted them a full year! The festive period is a great time to think of others, so tell your friends and get involved!
Monday 20th November
We will be launching the 3rd annual washbag appeal with a night of information and celebration. We are hoping to have some exciting speakers who can tell us how the last 2 years have gone, and it will be a chance for you all to ask any questions you had about the appeal!
Hope to see you all there!
Monday 20th Nov - Friday 1st Dec
Locations: Univeristy campus
We are asking for students to buy and fill a washbag with hygeine essentials.
Bags MUST include:
sanitary prodcuts (tampons or pads), toothpaste, toothbrush and face wipes.
You can add whatever else you want like soap, creams, brushes etc however we ask that NO razors or medication is included.
If you want you can include a small greeting card but please insure these must not contain identifiable information such as phone number or address.
Drop off points will be around campus and beyond. (locations TBC)
A GoFundMe is also being set up for those who do not have the time to prepare and donate a washbag, and can instead donate some money which the committee will put towards more washbags. This link will be shared shortly.
We have always been warmed by the generosity of donations and want this year to be just as big as a success as the previous two!!
