Alongside my day job, I'm Bloody Good Period's voluntary content & comms editor.
Bloody Good Period gives period supplies and toiletries to asylum seekers, refugees and those who can’t afford them.
I lead the overall content and communications strategy with the goal to increase monetary and products donations – as well as raise awareness of the charity and the wider issue of period poverty.
I also create all of the gory, graphic and, frankly, lol-worthy content on BGP’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels, write and circulate press releases and commission blog posts and artwork.
Humblebrag alert: since taking on this role, followers of BGP’s social channels have more than quadrupled and we’ve been inundated with donations – so many in fact that we’ve been able to expand to distributing monthly donations to two new drop-ins (on top of our three regulars).
