Share the Dignity, a charity helping women and girls in need, are asking for help to make this Christmas special for women in our community experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, or living in poverty.
The charity is hosting their annual It’s in the Bag campaign and are asking the community to donate a bag and drop off at collection boxes at Bunnings stores between Friday, 20 November and Sunday, 29 November.
To take part simply donate a handbag in good, used, or new condition. Fill it with items that will make a difference to the daily life of a woman or girl in need. Include the essentials such as period products, roll-on deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner and soap. Little luxuries such as a new lipstick, a hairbrush, hair ties, a gift card or a notebook and pen can be added, along with a thoughtful note or Christmas card that shows someone cares. Bags can be dropped off to the collection box at Bunnings between Friday, 20 November and Sunday, 29 November.
Share the Dignity’s Founder, Rochelle Courtenay says, “We want to help women, and girls this Christmas that may be in a refuge, shelter, on the streets or experiencing poverty.”
Bunnings General Manager of Operations Ryan Baker said, “It’s been a tough year and we know the need for this support in the community is much greater than ever before, so we are proud to be able to play a part in helping Share the Dignity to continue the great work they do.”
