What is 'It's In The Bag'?

Each year Share the Dignity’s ‘It’s in the Bag’ campaign aims to give vulnerable women and girls over the festive season a reason to smile and feel cared for, as well as restoring some dignity by providing them with handbags filled with essential hygiene products, plus a few extra treats .

Who is Share the Dignity?

Share the Dignity is an Australian charity bringing dignity to homeless, at-risk and those experiencing domestic violence through the distribution of sanitary items. Share the Dignity partner with local shelters and charitable organisations who support homeless, at-risk and women experiencing domestic violence.

What can I donate?

Choose a handbag or backpack you no longer use or buy a new one, then fill it with items including shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, sanitary items and anything else you can think of that will make a woman feel special.

Along with handbags and backpacks filled with hygiene items for women and teenage girls, Share the Dignity is also asking for nappy bags for new or expectant mothers experiencing homelessness, domestic violence and period poverty. Requests for these bags have increased, with charities reporting a demand for female sanitary items and products for newborns.

Where can I donate?

Donations can be dropped off at any Bunnings store and Trade CentreFind your local store.

When can I donate?

Donations can be made from Friday 22 November to Saturday 7 December 2019.
