Period’ campaign to raise funds to help women in Zimbabwe who, due to the economic crisis, are unable to afford packs of sanitary towels which cost on average more than two weeks’ wages.The Action for Southern Africa (ACTSA) campaign will be based around an on-pack promotion on sanitary towels in the Bodyform Ultra range. Packs will highlight Bodyform’s donation of a quarter of a million packets of sanitary towels to the women of Zimbabwe and will be on shelf during July and August 2007. The on-pack stickers will also give consumers background about the ACTSA Dignity! Period. campaign.The on-pack activity will be supported by a national PR campaign which will involve a range of editorial, advertorial and promotional routes, with support from celebrities to increase both media and consumer awareness. The bodyform.co.uk website will also feature a campaign microsite.

This results in many women resorting to using dirty rags, leading to severe infections which are often falsely attributed to sexual promiscuity, which can then result in domestic violence.Gavin Vandeligt of Bodyform said: “We are really excited to be sponsoring such a worthy cause, that really will make a difference to the lives of women in Zimbabwe and ultimately help them get on with their daily lives without risk of infections or even abuse.”  23 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
