Fighting Period Poverty at the Boom Box

January 23, 2024 | Melbourne Boomers news

The Cygnett WNBL’s second annual Fighting Period Poverty Round launched in Melbourne on Thursday January 18 with players, partners and officials coming together to pack toiletry bags that will be distributed to women in need by charity partner Share the Dignity. The initiative, which runs through Round 13 from January 24 to January 31, will see the league and its partners, including BOODY and Cygnett, team up to raise awareness and funds for Australian women and girls who go without period products.

The Deakin Melbourne Boomers will be hosting their Period Poverty Round at the Boom Box tomorrow January 24, against Perth Lynx.

Throughout Fighting Period Poverty Round, all athletes will wear themed t-shirts in their pre-game warm-ups as well as sport ‘Bloody Good Socks’, with both items available for purchase, all funds raised going to Share the Dignity.

There’s plenty of ways for the basketball community to get involved and support the cause, including bringing sanitary items to place in collection bins at game venues around the country, sharing social content, or buying a pair of Bloody Good Socks.

Tickets available via Ticketek, or watch live on ESPN/Kayo.
