The sanitary pads project (2018)

During the autumn of 2018 we got a wild idea and it was a big hit!

We started a fundraising for the Zulu girls who regularly can not attend school due to lack of money for sanitary pads. This is a matter we are very concerned with! We have sold washable sanitary pads in our Gift Shop for several years and thought it could be a rescue for the girls’ education!

We got help from the fantastic and creative people in the advertising agency Kitchen that did a pro bono job for us – and then we started fundraising on Facebook and Vipps.

We glued 450 sanitary pads at key locations in Oslo. Then the radio and television stations woke up too and gave us som publicity.

Our goal was accomplished with the help of our own sewing factory who made the panties and the sanitary pads. The washable pads have now been given out to the girls in all our areas.

Millions of thanks to everybody who contributed, we are completely overwhelmed by your response!
