Share the Dignity is so excited to be bringing you the Handbag with Heart.
Share the Dignity works to ensure every woman is afforded the dignity they deserve. We know that with #itsinthebag we have created a truly special way to connect caring strangers with women in need, through the simple object of a handbag. As a result, we are so excited to announce that we are in the final steps of bringing a long term dream of ours to life by creating a range of handbags of our very own for you to purchase for yourself, as a gift or to donate, with all proceeds being used to help with the programmes so we can continue our work.
Each bag will be named after one of the remarkable women for which our #itsinthebag Xmas gifts has helped.
The Paula bag is a large relaxed bag with a curved top and rounded bottom and a long strap that can be worn over the shoulder or across the body.
The Paula bag is made from a good quality PU faux leather and is vegan friendly. Bag Dimensions are 26cm deep, top of the bag is 40cms wide, base of the bag is 30cms wide and it has a base width of 11cms.
The Paula is named after a lady we have helped who is one of the ten percent of Australian women who suffer from endometriosis. For Paula, the condition is debilitating. Her symptoms are so bad she can’t work or even leave the house without assistance four weeks out of five. Every spare cent Paula has is spent 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 not had shampoo or conditioner in months.The generosity of the gift made her cry and more importantly made her feel valued and proud of herself for the first time in years. We are so delighted to have been able to help Paula feel dignified.
