Welcome to our bi-annual #DignityDrive. As one of Australia’s most active women’s charities, we collect pads and tampons and distribute them to homeless women, women at risk and women experiencing domestic violence. Every April and August, remember to pop an extra box of pads or tampons into your trolley to donate to homeless women in Australia.
Collection point registrations will reopen in January 2018.
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.
Homeless women need your help
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.
Can you donate just 1 box? Next time you’re at the store, remember: one box for me, one box for her. Simply pop your donation into the closest collection box during April and August.
Why donate to Share The Dignity’s April and August Drive?
Share the Dignity oversees a number of initiatives that give back to Australian women and children in need, with a particular focus on homeless, at-risk and those experiencing domestic violence. Our services range from collecting sanitary items, to funding the funerals of domestic violence victims.
Every April and August we call on you to help us give dignity to those in need at a time they need it most by donating a pack of pads and tampons at our registered collection points.
Can you spare a few hours for our women’s charity?
Right now we need Australian women and men to sign up to volunteer as a Shero. Our sheros (and heroes) volunteer a few hours to collect donated pads and tampons and take them to local charitable organisations for distribution. Can you spare a few hours to help out homeless women in your city? No car? No worries. We always have volunteering opportunities across Australia, many are work from home gigs that won’t take too much of your time. We also need specific volunteer roles filled right now.
