Hi, I'm Helena and I'm 11 years old.
My idea for this project started when i was thinking about how school help girls when they start their periods and realised there wasn't much other than the 'sex education' we all have to go though.
So I created a simple and cost effective package using my saved pocket money which includes the following:
reusable carry case (like a make up bag), emergency spare knickers, fem wipes, 4 different period pads (2 of each), an information pack and a mix of sweets and chocolates.
Than I decided to bring in some friends i've known since primary (also 11/12 years) who were just as creative to add to that pack as an extra bundle or on the side. These would include pamper packs such as lip glosses, bath bombs, face masks (cosmetics have to have assessment packs in order for us to make them ourselves) etc.
We all have our preferred sections in what we can do so we decided to set up a website (not fully complete) where we could sell our products.
But we are unfortunately limited in funds to buy the things we need and dont want to rely on our parents (they'd probably say no).
We want to save up what we earn for our future and at the same time donate some of that money to the charities we feel are important to us (cancer research, Alzheimer's, mind, young minds etc) as we have been affected by the family members we have lost and even the mental health of those affected during the lockdown, especially kids.
My friends and I would like to thank you in advance for taking the opportunity to read though this and hopefully we can succeed, gain and give back.
