We're Donating $2 From Every Contraception Sold to Share The Dignity!
We believe all menstruators deserve access to period products in Australia.
As we move into a new year, unfortunately all our problems don't simply disappear. Menstruators are experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence or doing it tough and the last thing they want to think about is their period. So to help combat period poverty in Australia, we're donating $2 from every contraception sold in January to Share the Dignity.
In 2015, Share the Dignity was founded after identifying there was a genuine need to provide vulnerable women in our community with essential sanitary products. It was reported that these women are often forced to choose between buying food to eat or buying expensive sanitary items to get through their periods.
Women and children, either homeless or in shelters, were having to clean themselves in public toilets and use paper towels to create makeshift sanitary pads. This is not and should never be okay.
From a grassroots local community initiative to a national charity, Share the Dignity has struck a chord with the Australian public and continues to evolve in order to provide for the needs of at-risk women and children.
Working tirelessly with over 5,500 volunteers, the charity has been able to deliver over 3.2 million packets of pads and tampons and over 617,000 essential-filled handbags to Australian women, girls and those who menstruate.
Share the Dignity continues to grow with the support of passionate volunteers and the generosity of Australian businesses, ensuring that everyone is afforded the dignity in life that many of us take for granted.
