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 period products.
It was reported that these women are often forced to choose between buying food to eat or buying expensive period items to get through the month. Women and children, either homeless or in shelters, were having to clean themselves in public toilets and use paper towels to create makeshift period 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 to provide for the needs of at-risk women and children.
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.
