It's in the Bag

Each November Share the Dignity donated thousands of bags to those in need across the country filled with essentials and special gifts to make Christmas one to remember.

In 2019, we were able to donate a record 134,010 #ItsInTheBag donations to those in need, bringing our three year total to 517,918 bag donations. The bags were made up with so much love and care from all who donated, filled with the basic essentials and so many more special gifts for people doing it though during Christmas time.

If you’re already preparing for the 2020 It’s In The Bag campaign, we are firstly so impressed by your organisation! Secondly, we wanted to remind you about what is needed in each bag. Inside the bag, we require period products, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, body wash, roll-on deodorant. In addition to this, you can add any products or gifts you think someone doing it tough may appreciate. The bag itself needs to be in good condition but can be a pre-loved handbag or backpack.

The 2020 It’s In The Bag campaign will run from the 20th of November until the 29th of November. Drop off points will be available at Bunnings stores nationwide with COVID-19 restrictions depending in some states. We are currently doing everything we can and working on contingency plans to ensure It's In The Bag can run successfully and we can continue to help those living in crisis.

Drives and Collections

At Share the Dignity, we aim to give those experiencing period poverty the dignity they deserve. Twice a year in March and August, we ask the public to donate pads, tampons, period underwear, incontinence pads, menstrual cups etc. to our Dignity Drives across the country.

We have collection points in all Woolworths stores and a number of other nominated businesses across the country during March and August only. At the end of the collection, we donate thousands of packets of unopened period products to our partner charities to help women doing it tough.

Your donations help those experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence and those doing it tough. We do not discriminate on who receives these products, no matter your history, background, how you identify, we believe everyone deserves a right to take control of their period with dignity.
