Share the Dignity
1 - 31 Aug 9:00am - 5:30pm
A box for me, a box for her – It’s easy to donate while you shop.
Take part in our #DignityDrive this August!
Donate pads and tampons at our collection point and they will go to women in need in our community.
“One box for me, one box for her”
Next time you’re at the shops, purchase an extra pack (or two) of sanitary items and donate them in a Pink Collection Box during our Dignity Drive.
Your donation is vital and we are grateful for your support.
About Share the Dignity
This is where we started. In March 2015 Rochelle Courtenay asked friends to help her collect pads and tampons to help out local homeless in her area of Brisbane. That first small collection led to the birth of Share the Dignity and our bi-annual #DignityDrives.
Every April and August we ask the public to donate pads and tampons to collection points throughout the country. At the end of the month we donate the thousands of packets of unopened sanitary products to our partner charities.
Homeless women need your help!
On any given night in Australia,
1 in 200 people are homeless
44% are female
27% are children under the age of 18
Family violence is the number one reason people present to homeless services. 55% of females cite this reason. We need your donation.
When you donate sanitary products to Share The Dignity, you’re donating much more than pads and tampons. You’re giving a woman experiencing homelessness or financial crisis the essentials, so she doesn’t need to choose between food and dignity.
Next time you’re doing your shopping, keep in mind: one box for me, one box for her. Imagine how many boxes you will be able to drop into your closest collection box during our April and August #Dignitydrives.
