Share The Dignity is an initiative run by two Queensland based women, Rochelle Courtenay and Heather Ranger. Their aim is to provide homeless and at-risk women across Australia with sanitary products to allow them a sense of dignity at a time when they need it most.
Because no woman should suffer the indignity of choosing between eating or buying sanitary products, Share The Dignity have a network of homeless and domestic violence shelters who they supply the donations to and allow them to distribute the donations where they see the need.
To help, you can donate sanitary items at one of the many collection sites, or if you’re not close to one of those, through the Tsuno website. Tsuno make environmentally friendly pads, and is also a social enterprise which exists to donate 50% of profits to charities helping women in the developing world.
Another way to help is to pop into my online shop – I will be donating 10% of all The Silver Forge proceeds from this month to this worthy cause!
