BLOODSPORT IV: Let It Flow

Friday, February 15th, 2019 at 6:00 pm at The Pinhook 

Co-hosted by the Eno River Women’s Rugby Club, Bull City Roller Derby and LUEWWD

Absorb this: For those of us who menstruate, we will have about 456 periods over 38 or so years. This amounts to lots and lots of pads and tampons that cost between 6 and 10 dollars a box.  For lower-income and/or homeless individuals, accessing these necessary hygiene products can be difficult, leading to negative impacts on employment, education, and health. The organizations who will receive these in-kind goods collected through Bloodsport IV include The Diaper Bank of North Carolina, Partners for Youth Opportunity, and ReCity.

Attendees are asked to bring unopened packages of pads and tampons or cash donations to purchase additional supplies for recipient organizations.

A number of local businesses have signed up to be collection sites now through February 14th, including: 

  • The Retreat at Brightleaf
  • Rock Paper Scissors Salon & Gallery
  • Center Studio Architecture
  • Rock’s Bar & Hair Shop
  • Cocoa Cinnamon (Lakewood location)
  • Carmen Carmen Salon at Southpoint
  • James Joyce Irish Pub
  • The Tranquility Company
