Host your own

Packing Party

No woman or girl should go without the very basic essentials, and together, we really do have the power to make a difference.

Bring together your friends, family, colleagues, and community to help this Christmas.

Whether you are a workplace looking to fulfill your ESG goals, a school looking to instill community into our future leaders, a sporting organisation wanting to give back, or a group of friends wanting to do something meaningful, an It’s in the Bag Packing Party is the perfect way to ensure Christmas looks a little brighter for someone in need.

It’s in the Bag is one of Australia’s most loved Christmas appeals, where we encourage everyday Australians to put together bags filled with essential items to donate to someone in need for Christmas.

Once all your bags are packed they can be dropped off at our Bunnings collection points from 10-26 November 2023.

How your bags will help...

Kathy was tragically shot in the hip during a domestic violence incident. As a result, she struggled physically and mentally, she had to relearn to walk, and felt she wasn't worthy.

Ever so slowly Kathy started rebuilding her life and it was at this point in time she received an It's in the Bag.

In amongst a bag of essential items, a note reading “You are not alone” restored her hope, and she clung to that message through many more of life’s hurdles as an ever-present reminder that to somebody out there she mattered.

By participating in Its in the Bag, you are helping women like Kathy, receive the love, hope, and dignity they deserve this Christmas.

Hosting your own packing party for Share the Dignity is a great way to help women receive the love, hope & dignity they deserve this Christmas.
