We are proud to announce a new member to the CPF Team, Executive Assistant and overall powerhouse, Joyce Lau Farris! We are so happy to have you in the Claire’s Place Foundation fam, you’ve already made a huge impact!
As we wake up to election results, we’ve been reflecting on how the outcomes of previous elections in recent history spurred on the creation of Bloody Good Period. BGP was founded just over three years ago, as the reality of a Trump presidency was sinking in, and just after the Brexit referendum. Our founder Gabby wanted to create a positive, forward-facing movement. She chose a name that set out to be funny – ‘bloody’ being a quintessentially British swear word - but also using it to grab attention and start conversations. Ever since, we have aimed to channel our frustration into positive change. Frustration at a system which not only minimises, but actively persecutes, the most vulnerable members of our society. Frustration at the sheer inhumanity of people having to go without the most basic of necessities. We have strived to make an active, tangible difference, and to shout as loudly as we can against injustice of all kinds. And we have always been bloody overwhelmed and totally delighted to receive your glorious, heartfelt, and powerful support. . So as we all process the outcome of another election today, we’ll still be here, working to call on those in power to provide for people who menstruate. And we’ll do that until we’re not bloody needed anymore (at which point we’ll disappear with delight). We know that we can count on your support as we continue the fight, and promise to be here with positivity and with puns, with fierceness and with bloody love, in return. .

Because some days we just need a cute picture. For those of you who have had a long week and need a reason to smile. These three adorable pups are here to do just that! After tough weeks and long days, I have to remember to look around at all these incredibly cute, sweet and playful puppies. They’re why I am here and they never cease to make me smile and warm my heart.
Wanna help feed feral cats? Then boop my nose and for every boop I get, my folks will donate $1.00 dollar, up to $200! You have the easy part - all you have to do is comment. The following organizations will get food donations: @_lovedatlast @carriescats @thedaviscrew @straycatrelief 😻 These folks work hard feeding multiple cats daily, vetting them and making sure they’re spayed/ neutered and get medical care. The feral cats lives are so much better thanks to these amazing people. Unfortunately, they regularly find new cats dumped at their colonies, or cannot ignore pleas to help the innocent babies, even when their spaces are already bursting at the seams with cats. I think these rescuers are heroes who need our help and support. I know there are many other organizations in need and hope to inspire you and others to do the same. There is no amount too small and it would thrill me to see more people doing this. Use #boop4ferals if you want to join me. Now, boop my nose! 🖤
• One family helping another. If you like gingerbread it’s a win! Buy a family of gingerbread from your local @goodearthhq & they will donate $1 from each little family to your local food bank! ♥️☕️ #notsponsored Just a friendly reminder to help your local food bank one way or another 💛 Why not stop by Good Earth for a coffee or a treat. 🤷🏼♀️☺️ @mustardseedvic is our local food bank. If you’re local, you will also see bins in grocery stores so you can drop off goods there as well to help a family in need.💛
I’m still horrified by the election results: as someone who works for the NHS I see it struggling with understaffing and underfunding every day under the Tories. I don’t understand why people want to leave the EU, whose human rights directives help and protect us. I can’t understand why people don’t want to help support those less fortunate than themselves. But we can still do that, even if not through our government. Donate money and/or time if you can spare it to your local food bank, LGBTQ organisation, mental health charity. We can help by helping each other - if you have any suggestions for ways to help, I’d love to hear them. ❤️
On the morning of November 24, Anaya woke up coughing a lot. But it was no regular cough, when she moved her hand from her mouth, she saw blood. Anaya was terrified. She screamed for her mother. “I thought she had fallen…but then I saw her there was blood on her hands, around her mouth on the sheets. It’s the most scared I’ve been. After everything else we’ve been through this year…now our daughter has cancer!” – Garima, mother Little Anaya has lost a lot this year – the house she grew up in, the school she went to, the happy childhood she once had. Now, she can lose her life too. “We had a small business which shut down in May. We were running under a loss, we are in debt…our Anaya has suffered a lot because of this. We mortgaged our house and had to find a small rented house…we didn’t have money to even pay Anaya’s fees. We had to stop sending her to school. Our meals, every small thing we need, even a toothbrush, has been paid by our relatives.” Sanket and Garima are in no position to afford Anaya’s chemotherapy. When she was diagnosed, they first took her to a government hospital. But it was so overcrowded, that it would take months to start her treatment. They could waste no time. But now they have nothing to continue the chemotherapy she needs. “I know this disease can change you completely, it can take away your hair, your strength…your hope. I still can’t believe that my 6-year-old daughter has to go through all this! I also have a 1-year-old baby to take care of….on some days I don’t even remember what I did five minutes ago. It’s all a haze.” “She asks me why we’re here, why she was coughing blood. We tell her it’s a fever…but that’s the only thing she ever says to us. She was so talkative, so active…now she just lays there. And this is just the beginning.” Sanket is now desperately looking for work. Their relatives have been supportive till now, but there’s only so much they can do. If

Let’s make 2020 the year of buying less, making better choices, donating more, and living more intentionally. You don’t have to live a minimalist lifestyle (only if you want to), but you can let go of some of the stuff you’ve been hanging onto, and being mindful of what you bring into your home. ___ Start by pairing down what you really don’t love or need, and streamlining what you already have. ___ You Got This!! 🤛🏻 -2020... 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝒚𝒆𝒂𝒓 𝒐𝒇 #lessstuff#morelife and #newbeginnings ! Let’s do this! ❌😘-𝑫𝒆𝒃
