Dignity Drive – Donate Pads & Tampons
Dignity Drive started in March 2015 when Rochelle Courtenay asked friends to help her collect pads and tampons to help out local homeless in her area of Brisbane. That first small collection led to the birth of Share the Dignity and their bi-annual #DignityDrives.
Every April and August they ask the public to donate pads and tampons to collection points throughout the country. At the end of the month they donate the thousands of packets of unopened sanitary products to their partner charities.
Homeless women need your help – Homeless Women’s Charity Needs Donations of Pads and Tampons
On any given night in Australia, 1 in 200 people are homeless. 44% are female. 27% are children under the age of 18. Family violence is the number one reason people present to homeless services. 55% of females cite this reason. They need your donation.
When you donate sanitary products to Share The Dignity, you’re donating much more than pads and tampons. You’re giving a woman experiencing homelessness or financial crisis the essentials, so she doesn’t need to choose between food and dignity.
Next time you’re doing your shopping, keep in mind: one box for me, one box for her. Imagine how many boxes you will be able to drop into your closest collection box during their April and August #Dignitydrives.
