Drives and Collections

Dignity Drive

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 women, girls and those who menstruate 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.

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 2020, we were able to donate 93,981 #ItsInTheBag donations to those in need, bringing our four-year total to 613,317 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 women, girls and those who menstruate doing it though during Christmas time.

In your donation, we ask for some of life's essentials: 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.

Stay tuned for more information for November 2021.
