PERIODS!!! I know, we all wish we didn’t get them, but they seem to keep coming back. Boo.
But imagine not being able to afford the basic necessities of ‘that time of the month’?
Here’s where you can help. The next time you’re picking up a packet of pads, tampons or any women’s sanitary item – pick up another and bring it into us in the month of August. We are a collection point for the August Share the Dignity drive https://www.sharethedignity.com.au/
By donating to this cause you are helping women who might be homeless or have fled from domestic violence. Products raised go towards their projects supporting women in need, providing dignity when dealing with their monthly period and funding projects.
For these vulnerable and at risk women, each month brought a shameful and traumatic experience, suffering indignities such as having to clean themselves in public toilets and use paper towels or newspaper to create makeshift sanitary pads.
Reading this from the comfort of our homes, with the knowledge that many Australian women couldn’t take hygiene for granted during menstruation, we knew we wanted to be part of helping make a change.
So come on down, bring us any women’s sanitary items and we will gladly add it to our collection.
