Street Stories: Reality and Hypocrisy.

Street Stories: Reality and Hypocrisy.

We make Period Packs here at MPP, and we make lovely toiletries packs. We also supply blankets and sleeping bags to those experiencing homelessness and we support those in crisis accommodation. These are all good things, and we’re proud of what we do, really proud. We’re all volunteers and we’re doing a great job. But, none of this is doing anything to solve the problem of homelessness and the epidemic that is occurring right around our country.

Street Stories - Sorry

Street Stories: Sorry
Yesterday was national Sorry Day, where as a nation we say sorry for the forced removal of children and the pain and suffering inflicted on Indigenous peoples by the hands of the Government at the time.
As an Indigenous woman, and founder of this charity, a charity that provides sanitary items and supports people experiencing homelessness, Sorry Day is a day of increased significance to me.

Menstrual Cups and Homelessness

We often get people messaging or emailing asking us whether we have thought about offering menstrual cups or reusable cloth pads to the women and Transmen we support. In short, yes we have! However there are several reasons why we don’t offer these as an option. Though we welcome the question as it allows us to explain a little more on what the experience of homelessness is actually like. Please note, this post is not at all meant to be condescending, we’re just trying to paint a picture of what life is like out there when you’re living on the streets.

Beauty On Your Own Terms (Thanks Raff)

If you're not already following Raff over at Beauty On Your Own Terms (https://www.facebook.com/makeup4amonth) - BOYOT, you should be!

Raff is wearing make up every day for the month of May, to 'raise awareness of a persons right to feel beautiful on their own behalf.'

While doing so, Raff is blogging his journey and also raising money for MPP, which of course we are thrilled about. Only three days in and BOYOT has already raised enough to supply a Period Pack to 16 women experiencing homelessness. This is incredible!
