Other ways you can help
We’re on a mission to ensure all who menstruate have access to period products when they need them. You can help bring dignity to women and girls experiencing homelessness, domestic violence, and period poverty through the distribution of sanitary items by making a donation today.
"I was on my last tampon so I went to the bathroom to wrap some toilet paper around my pants, but there was the Share the Dignity machine. I had never seen one before, and it saved the day."
The Dignity Vending Machine is a world-first innovation that dispenses a free period pack, known as a #PinkBox, with six tampons and two pads at the push of a button.
These machines are so important for our community, giving dignified access to period products without the receiver needing to ask, which is often a barrier because of the shame and stigmas associated with menstruation, leaving women and girls going without.
We rely on our amazing community of supporters and businesses to ensure we have enough funds for these machines.
We currently have 61 machines with expired funding.
We need your support to help keep our Dignity Vending Machines running.
We urgently need your help to ensure our machines remain stocked with period packs.
Every machine costs an average of $5,000 per year to maintain and restock the supplies.
Can you help us keep these machines stocked and maintained?
The state of period poverty in Australia is unacceptable.
There are too many stories of women, girls and those who menstruate having to resort to using rags or socks or using products for too long because they could not afford more, which is a major health risk.
We need to raise over $300,000 to keep each of the 61 machines with expired funding operational.
We need your help, please donate today!
Inspiration for our Dignity Vending Machines
People should never have to use rolled up toilet paper or hand towels to manage their periods, or choose between feeding their family or buying period products.
School children should not have to miss school to avoid the embarrassment of not being able to afford pads and tampons.
Dignity Vending Machines have helped to provide a way for women, girls and those who menstruate to access free period products, without the anxiety and shame that many feel when having to ask someone else for help.
When someone is doing it tough, the last thing on their mind should be dealing with their period.

Each Dignity Vending Machine costs $25,000 to build, install and maintain for four years with #PinkBox supplies.
Sponsorship delivers a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) opportunity that empowers those in need through your business.
Each Dignity Vending Machine has a space to showcase its sponsor.
