We’re Sorry!
BUT WE ARE CLOSING DOWN

Back on Women’s Day back in 2017, we decided to build a company committed to social change.  We worked hard to create Bleed For You, because we wanted to see socially conscious tampons on offer so women had a choice where the profits from their periods went. We planned and imported thousands of ethically sourced organic tampons – and shared product/profits with Share the Dignity in order to support homeless women having access – but we have not made enough money to grow the business and buy in the skills we need to keep to running.


FINAL SALE UNTIL APRIL 15th! 
We wanted you to have a last chance to purchase our ethically and organically certified products. Please go on line and order prior to the 15th of April, after which our products will no longer be available.

 

 ARE YOU KEEN TO TAKE OVER? 

If you happen to be the kind of person who would be keen to take over Bleed for You and keep in running please contact Vanessa on nessalexander@me.com or James on james@bleedforyou.com

 

CELEBRATING WHAT WE GAVE over the last two years!

  • We carefully sought tampons we knew represented our organic and ethically sourced values, importing 150,000 of them in late 2017.
  • Over the next year, we gave away 13,200 tampons to various women’s charities.
  • Our decision not to shrink wrap the cardboard packs (tampons are wrapped individually for hygiene) saved over 2,727,000 cm2 of plastic from landfills and oceans.
  • Mamamia made us one of their Lady Start Ups to support, and told the world we were the best tampons to buy.
  • As well as donations, we provided Share the Dignity with cost price organic product worth close to $16,000 commercially.
  • We donated over 2000 tampons to Wesley Mission in Newcastle for use at their MacKenzie Center. This has helped around 200 women and youth access free tampons as part of their Early Intervention Youth Program.
  • We donated 250 tampons to Women’s Refuge in New Zealand.
  • We donated a year’s supply to help raise over $5000 in funds for cancer research at the Pink and Purple Breakfast in Wellington.
  • We donated $200 to a Caves Beach community group raising funds for girls in community schools in Nepal. 
SO, Thanks for helping us make a difference...

PLEASE continue to support Rochelle Courtney and Share the Dignity by signing up to their mailing list Share the Dignity / Get Free Updates, and joining them at your local DigniTea Share The Dignity Dignitea, High Tea, (a fabulous fun afternoon tea full to raise funds for more free tampon and pad machines across Australia).

Thanks again for all your support making a small difference,

Vanessa, Cherry, and James
