Inspiration for our Dignity Vending Machines
We were shocked to hear that people were using rolled up toilet paper and hand towels to manage their periods. We couldn't believe that school children in remote areas are opting to miss school rather than risk humiliation because they can’t afford pads and tampons. The state of homelessness and poverty in Australia is shocking. We acted. We created the #Pinkbox.
