Share the Dignity was started in Brisbane when it was read by Rochelle an article on Mia Freedman’s page early in the year of 2015. Rochelle decided to do something about it. The first collection of 1st March had the local community, friends, family and local businesses come together collecting over 500 pads and tampons.
We were thrilled getting them out to some local great Brisbane charities that we knew women would benefit from. We had just 100 pads and tampons left when our neighbour Vanuatu went into crisis so we bundled them off and got them off to the relief team that were heading over there.
Not long after that we were contacted by a few Domestic violence shelters if we had anymore sanitary items but we had to say NO. We never want to have to say no again! With our second collection date on 1st August, 2015 we have been overwhelmed by the women of Australia and their passion to help share the dignity has seen us aiming for a collection of over 10,000 pads and tampons.
We will have collection dates for April and August 2016 already knowing that we hope for 500 collection points in Australia.
