The Jane Bag
The Jane bag is a chic black tote bag with long straps and top zipper. It features a zippered back pocket, multiple inside pockets and the signature Share The Dignity lining. It is a perfect bag for the workplace, out and about town, or for you to use for next year’s Christmas #itsinthebag!
We named the “Jane” handbag after a courageous woman who left an abusive home with her two young boys. They ended up in a domestic violence shelter on Christmas Day 2015. When Jane was given an #itsinthebag, she was overwhelmed that someone she didn’t know had given her a Christmas gift.
The items in the bag were things she never thought she would be without. It seems impossible that a toothbrush and toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, and a lovely scarf would be so necessary. When Jane checked the pocket of the bag, she found a $20 fashion voucher. She again broke down with gratitude. Once Jane got her boys to a new school, she took herself to the sales and bought herself a new dress.
Jane felt a million dollars in that dress – so good that she applied for a job, wore the dress to the interview, and got the job.

The Paula Bag
The Paula bag is a large relaxed bag with a curved top and rounded base. Wear the long strap over the shoulder or across the body. It’s great for work, especially if you’re commuting! It’s also stylish enough for weekend outings. It’s also perfect for you to use for next year’s Christmas #itsinthebag!
Paula has endometriosis. It’s truly debilitating for Paula. Her symptoms are so bad she can’t work or even leave the house without assistance four weeks out of five. Therefore Paula spends every spare cent on sanitary products and trying to manage her condition. When we gave her a bag filled with toiletries, she cried to see that she finally had the bare necessities she needed. She had gone without shampoo or conditioner for months. She felt valued and proud of herself for the first time in years.
While Paula’s story isn’t unique, you can make a change for women with chronic health problems. Buy Paula’s handbag online now.
Share The Dignity Bag Protector
Throughout the #itsinthebag campaign we have been knocked out by the thoughtfulness and generosity of your donations. We’ve had literally thousands of bags that were stuffed so full of goodies they couldn’t zip up. Your generosity gave us an idea – how about a bag for a bag?
Presenting the Share The Dignity Bag Protector. This soft drawstring bag has many practical uses. It can:
1. Be used to store your Handbag With Heart
2. Be used to pop your #itsinthebag handbag in – ensuring that your bag doesn’t lose any of your thoughtful gifts.
3. Be used by the woman who receives your gift, giving her a second bag to help as she rebuilds her life.
