How we are helping: NEW GOAL FOR 2023: 1000 Bags by 12/31/23
The Grace Upon Grace Project has The First Period Project in partnership with 3 local school districts in Northern Colorado. In conjunction with health educators they provide 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 pattern for cosmetic bags including our zippered bags or our snappy sack! Please see our pattern section below for our suggested patterns! The recommended size is 7"x9" or 9"x7". This size holds just the right amount of supplies.
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. You do not have to use batting, but you can if you like.
Additional Items: If you have like new IPSY bags, they are also accepting these!
Our new goal is 1000 over the course of 2023. This organization has an ongoing need for these bags, so feel free to sew and ship whenever you have a box full.
You are welcome to tally in advance as a pledge what you will be sewing in a 2 week period of time.

If your box will cost you more than $20 to ship, GUGP is partnered with Give Back Box to get you a $20 UPS label from Give Back Box and ship up to 50 pounds and 108" in girth to Grace Upon Grace Project here.
Due to a computer glitch, they send out the same label with the same tracking number to every person and you can't use it. After you receive your label, please immediately email Monika at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for a "fresh" label with an unused tracking number. You will get a new label in 1-2 days. This is the label you should use.
