Share the Dignity – ‘It’s in the Bag’ Event
Share the Dignity’s annual event, It’s In The Bag, will be on from 19 – 28 November 2021.
#ItsInTheBag is Share the Dignity’s annual event where they encourage every day Australians to donate a bag to someone in need for Christmas. The bags are filled with essential items and are distributed to 3,000 Australian charities.
Simply fill a new or pre-loved bag with essential items for someone in need and take it to your local Bunnings Warehouse Australia in November. All stores are participating.
Share the Dignity then distribute the bags directly to charities across the country to give them to those living in crisis. They’re gifted to people experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and those doing it tough.
Essentials that must be in the bag include:
- Roll-on deodorant
- Soap/Body wash
- Period products
Anything additional is up to you.
How/Where to Donate:
For 2021, collections will open at every Bunnings store across Australia from 19 to 28 November.
If you would like to donate outside of collection time, you have two options:
1- Mail directly:
Share the Dignity
PO Box 345
Sandgate QLD 4017
2 – Sponsor a bag through their website and they will pack it for you
What needs to be in the bag:
Share the Dignity collect three types of bags for Its in the Bag to ensure those in need receive the items best suited to them. The three types of bags and what they need are outlined below.
- Adult bags
