We need YOUR help.

It’s International Women’s Day on the 8th March and we’re launching our new fundraising effort.  We need volunteers to help raise £100 each in 100 days.

Every Month relies on donations of products and cash to continue the work we do in the local community.

This year our goal is to be able to register as a charity in the hopes of securing more
funding and expanding the area in which we serve, but to do that we need to raise £5000.

That’s where you come in.

As a 100 in 100 volunteer you would need to raise; you guessed it, £100 in 100 days, starting on the 8th of March and finishing on the 16th of June.

All of the money raised will go towards funding our project and the overall total.  This means we can register as an actual charity, which will stand us in great stead for the future and means we can help out more and more people.

There are plenty of ways to raise the money for us and if you want to join us on this epic journey please please please sign up by the 1st of March.

You’ll be sent a super wicked fundraising pack which will have tonnes of ideas and a gofundme link which, once you’ve registered it, will kick start your fundraising.

What do you say? Are you in? Help us out!

Clue is a Berlin based period tracking app which allows users to track their cycle, identify regular and irregular patterns such as pain and emotion levels and share the information with friends and family. All of these factors contribute to menstruation mindfulness and the company intends for the app to start healthy and honest conversations about periods.

The company collaborated with the New York based advocacy group the IWHC to collect data about when and where people did and did not feel comfortable talking about their periods. They also recorded the euphemisms they used instead of just s

aying period. Those euphemisms resulted in gloriously massive and red posters which took over the Berlin underground stations.

Clue want to break down those archaic social barriers that prevent period chat.  These euphemisms, although sometimes funny on the surface, can in reality, be a huge problem as the majority of people using them are avoiding the word period.

The campaign goes further than the big red boards, search #justsayperiod on Twitter to find a stream of interesting menstruation discussion on all topics from contraception to superstitions to femininity. We need to keep the conversation going, as menstruation silence leads to much bigger problems.

What do you think? Should the painters be thrown out? Should we tell Aunt Flo to f off?


We were totally overwhelmed by the amount of incredible artwork that was received for Paint the Town Red. Each artist had a unique response to the brief and collectively, they provided a stirring reply to period attitudes and poverty. The stigma and shame which has been hanging over bleeding since it began, can stop people accessing the products they need. It was a real joy to see creative and like-minded folk come together to bin off shame and celebrate period experiences.

Northern Artist, Sammi Cannings created the AMAZING ‘Bad Timing’ piece as part of the exhibition and it portrays a moment that all menstruators can relate to. She took the time to chat about it and give us a sneaky insight into the creation of ‘Bad Timing’ and her work.

1. What work are you most interesting in making? What materials do you use?
I love making character based pieces, where I can show interesting expression and emotion – and try and make people laugh too. I mainly work digitally, drawing my work straight into the computer.

2. How did you make this piece?
This piece was first sketched out on paper, then scanned into the computer and coloured in Photoshop using a Wacom drawing tablet.

3. What inspired you to make it?
The drawing was inspired by that horrible feeling you get when you get your period somewhere unexpected and you’re totally unprepared for it. I wanted to replicate that emotion, but in a lighter, sillier way that would make people smile.

4. What would you tell your younger self about menstruation?
“It’s not as awful as it seems right now!”. Getting your period sucks, but you get used to it and you don’t have to be embarrassed by it, it’s totally normal!

5. What are you working on at the moment?
I’m currently working as a freelance video editor for children’s TV. So I’m spending most of my free time working on some art pieces for myself and trying to improve my skills as an artist.

6. How did you find out about the Every Month campaign?
One of my friends tagged me in a post on your Instagram because she thought I’d be interested. After that I went and found out more about Every Month and all the great work you guys do.

Last month we hosted Paint the Town Red at Plant NOMA, celebrating local artists, combating period stigma, making some sweet crafts and raising funds for the campaign. We were OVERWHELMED by just how many people came down and showed their support. The place was packed and the sanitary product collections were overflowing.

The crafting corner was in full flow all evening (how many times can I get away with saying flow?). From origami vaginas to campaign badges to Christmas card making. There was glitter, red felt tip, campaign messages and gem hearts everywhere – what’s not to love? Not forgetting the amazing Prom-esque background, fully stocked with period props.

We had a raffle which included extraordinary prizes donated to us including booze, Lush goodies, theatre tickets, a tour of Old Traff and even a signed picture of Judge Rinder (there really was something for everyone).  The far wall was covered in art and looked insanely good. The artists were asked to respond to how they felt about menstruation and the final work was interesting and diverse.  Here are just a few:

No I’m not on my Period by Beth Mollart-Evans

The Tampon Smuggler by Charly Tudor

Bad Timing by Sammi Cannings

We just want to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who helped organise the event, the artists who contributed, everyone who came and those who couldn’t come and still donated. £854.60 was raised in total and five bins of sanitary products were collected providing even more people with a safe and comfortable period. It was incredible to see so many people come together. We love you all and had such an amazing time drinking, chatting and crafting with you.

Keep an eye out for upcoming events in the new year on our social media (there’s definitely more where that came from…).
