If you would like to donate...
At this point and time, The Rough Period does not accept monetary donations.
We accept donations of physical product, because we like our supporters to have fun with their donation and select products that they themselves use and feel comfortable using.
Every single tampon goes to a person in need, sleeping rough in Sydney city.
All our members work on a volunteer basis, and no funds are used for wages.
We thank you for you ongoing support, we cannot do this without you.
How To Donate Product
Purchase and Drop Off
If you are in NSW and dropping off is easiest for you, we have several options in which you can drop off your donations; all we require is that the products you donate follow our guidelines, as there are certain items we do not give out. We ask you follow our guidelines to prevent wastage of unusable items.
We ask that you respect our privacy, and only drop to locations that are listed. Donations can be made by courier to our mailing address, however we ask that these are no longer personally delivered.

Group Donations, Raising Funds, and Packing Parties
Doing cool things are experiences better shared with friends right? If you are thinking about donating why not ask your friends to get involved too. A lot of our supporters choose to have their very own 'packing parties' where they pool their funds together and buy bulk items, some even pack their own mini packs for us. This is a great activity for friends groups, offices and families to get involved with. Please keep in mind that you don't have to buy every single item we pack, any donations are greatly appreciated.
If you decide to have your own packing party, send us an email so we can let you know what we are low on, or what we need for the upcoming months. We will also tell you what NOT to pack.
