How we are helping:

The Grace Upon Grace Project has The First Period Project in partnership with 3 local school districts in Northern Colorado. The distribution is set for Spring 2023. In conjunction with health educators they will be providing several thousand menstruating persons their first period kits in conjunction with menstruation education. These kits need cosmetic bags to store all the period products and educational materials in and this is how Crafting Change can help. 

1) Cosmetic Bags - You can use any of our patterns for cosmetic bags including zippered bags or our snappy sack! Please see our pattern section below for our suggested patterns!

Fabrics: As these are for middle school aged kids, keep the fabrics age appropriate. Nothing babyish and nothing old-fashioned. Use fun, bright fabric. Use licensed prints if you have them. No fabrics with references to drugs, alcohol or inappropriate sayings or words. Nothing political in nature.  If using the Snappy Sack pattern, these do not need to have the boxed pleat bottom. 

Additional Items: If you have like new IPSY bags, they are also accepting these!

Please feel free to sew and keep adding to your box until you have a full box and ship when it's full. This organization is working to get set up on Give Back Box and we will post that when they have a link to their discounted label.
