Man with a Van

It was a bit awesome to have Ben and Leonardo from Man With A Van donate their time and services today! They took a few dozen of our fully stocked backpacks to Launch Housing for us, to add to the Christmas appeal.

These backpacks are the ones you all donated and it's great to see them heading off to their recipients in time for Christmas.

** A big Thank You!**

We were absolutely thrilled to receive a call last week to tell us we had won a grant from the Bank of Melbourne Neighborhood fund. This is such an incredible gift and will enable us to buy the van we so desperately need to continue our outreach work and deliver more Period Packs to those in need. Up until now we've been using our own cars to get everything out, pick up donations and deliver orders to the agencies we support.

Thank you LUSH

We had the best night last with Maddy and the team from Lush at Highpoint! Sales from donations of the gorgeous Lush Charity Pots were kindly donated to MPP to help us further our support of menstrual management for people experiencing homelessness.

We had so much fun and came home smelling pretty amazing after testing out all the delicious smelling, all natural soaps and body oils.

A huge thanks to the entire Lush Highpoint team for their amazing support, generosity and for putting on a really fun evening!

Christmas Appeal

Melbourne Period Project invite you to take part in our annual Christmas appeal. This year, we're looking to source and fill 200 backpacks for 200 people experiencing homelessness.

Backpacks are significantly more functional for people sleeping rough and can be filled with an array of useful items. You can donate just a backpack, or something to put in it. We'll get them all together, fill them up and hand them to our agencies and friends on the street at Christmas time.

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.
