10,000 TAMPONS FOR WORLD MENSTRUAL HYGIENE DAY

10,000 TAMPONS FOR WORLD MENSTRUAL HYGIENE DAY

May 27, 2018

It’s World Menstrual Hygiene Day. A day to raise awareness of the difficulties menstruation causes for women suffering poverty and cultural shame. We tend to think those problems are happening elsewhere. In fact, they are happening right here in Australia.

Share The Dignity founder Rochelle Courtenay has first-hand experience. Her email inbox is always filling with stories of women and girls that make her cry. Last week a 12-year-old girl in WA kept a tampon in for two days because the family couldn’t afford any more, and she wanted to go to school. Another mum was making do by cutting up large pads she’d been given and taping them into her 11-year-old’s underwear. Girls in indigenous communities are regularly missing school. “More women access homelessness services than men now, and of course many of them have kids too. Last year the number of women reached 175,000. No one should have to choose between feeding their kids and tampons. This is a health issue. Using socks and rags, or reusing tampons can cause serious infections.”

Share The Dignity urgently need 10,000 tampons to meet the need.

So we have partnered with them for a World Menstrual Hygiene Day to run a 3 DAY BOX FOR EVERY BOX giveaway.

One Box for You. One Box for a Woman Or Girl In Need.

No matter how many you buy. It's never been easier to give.

IF you already have enough organic tampons on hand AND just want to donate to Share the Dignity you can double your donation instead.

Simply put "Share The Dignity" in the shipping details, and our address (Nobbys Rd Newcastle East 2300) as the shipping address, and we will gift Share the Dignity, twice as many as you order.

Bleedforyou.

No Shame. No Limits.

Giving 50% back.


Happy World Menstrual Hygiene Day,
Vanessa, Cherry and James
