March Dignity Drive
Twice a year, in March and August, Share the Dignity asks the public to donate pads, tampons, period underwear, incontinence pads, menstrual cups etc. to their Dignity Drives across the country.
Throughout March, collection points will be at all Woolworths stores across the country and a number of nominated businesses. The Dignity Drive will begin on 1 March 2021. Since Share the Dignity was founded, they have been able to donate 2.8 million period products to those in need through Dignity Drives and the #ItsInTheBag campaign.
The public’s generosity has changed the lives of so many across Australia. Share the Dignity donate thousands of packets of unopened period products to their partner charities to help those doing it tough. From people experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, and those living in crisis.
Everyone experiencing period poverty deserves the right to their dignity.
What period products are accepted?
They accept period products including:
- Maternity pads
- Incontinence pads
- New reusable pads
- Period-proof underwear

They collect this variety of period products so everyone receives their preferred item and can be empowered to take control of their period their way.
