Sponsor an It's in the Bag
We receive upwards of 100,000 requests from charities across Australia for It's in the Bag donations to be distributed to. Whilst a testament to the importance of these bags, this is not an easy feat.
Last year, we were able to send 1,500 bags filled with love to regional and remote communities.
In 2021, we are aiming to send 4,000 bags to women and girls who desperately need our help. These bags will be packed in September and sent on their way, ready to arrive in time for Christmas. For some, their only gift this Christmas.
No woman or girl should ever have to live without the basic essentials. Sponsor a bag today and make a life-changing difference.
Help us raise $350,000 to send 4000 bags into remote and regional communities. Your support will ensure that women and girls have access to the very basic essentials.
Raised so far
#ItsInTheBag donations make a life-changing difference
During one of our Founder Rochelle’s visits to a remote indigenous community, she heard an experience of a local petrol station worker. During one of her shifts, a woman had run inside, very frantic and distressed and it was obvious that she was looking for something. She had visibly leaked from her period onto the floor.
She watched the lady grab a packet of pads off the shelf and run straight into the bathroom without paying for the products. After the worker had time to contemplate her options, the lady returned from the bathroom, left the remaining pads from the packet back on the shelf, and quickly left the store.
This very same community has countless stories of students and teachers missing school, not only because of their period but because of a lack of access to all basic hygiene items. The scary reality is that many women and girls are living a life where owning a toothbrush or deodorant is a luxury.
Remote communities are some of the hardest-hit communities when it comes to crisis. For Share the Dignity they are also often the last to receive our products. This is because of the logistical and expense barriers associated with reaching these areas. This year we are making it our mission to ensure that these vulnerable communities receive the support and dignity that they deserve.
We need you to help play a part in this. It is so easy to make a difference. Please donate today.
It's more than just a bag, we need your help
While $49 might be easy to let go of on a night out or a gift for a loved one, for some, it is the ability to get through another week. There is a lot that needs to be done in this space to ensure pride and dignity.
When women don't have enough money to feed or care for their families each night, sacrifices are made. This often impacts their abilities to care for their personal hygiene. This has greater impacts on things like school attendance and mental health.
That is why it is so important that together we take action so that we can provide relief to these communities.
#ItsInTheBag provides hope for many. A gift, simply filled with essential products and love ensuring that women and girls can live the dignified life they deserve.
It's more than a bag. Give the gift of hope and dignity
