McCann Properties are proud to be supporting the Share the Dignity campaign.
Share the Dignity aims to ease the monthly struggle for many homeless Australian women who don’t have access to sanitary items and with that, minimise the humiliation and degradation felt by these women. Find out more at www.sharethedignity.com.au
The Share the Dignity campaign has its roots in Queensland but has spread nationwide with a huge level of support from the community and McCann Properties are very pleased to come on board as a collection point for ACT donations.
This Christmas, Share the Dignity is running the ‘It’s In The Bag’ campaign. They are asking Australians to donate a handbag they no longer use and fill it with essential and luxury items that would make a woman feel special. Your gift will go to a woman who is struggling or experiencing hardship this Christmas. Your donation will be so much more than just a handbag, your making a woman feel special at a time of year, when some women feel most alone.
Last year, Share the Dignity donated hundreds of handbags to women in need in Canberra and Queanbeyan. This beautiful Share the Dignity success story came from Canberra and really highlights the impact such a small gift can make!
‘We donated some of our bags to women in domestic violence shelters. One of the bags went to a woman who was in a shelter with her children. Our handbag was the only gift she received that Christmas, and it was the only gift she had received for many years. Her handbag was brimming with essential and luxury items, and it also included a gift card.
That day, the woman took her children to school and decided to go shopping to buy herself a new outfit with the gift card. She felt so good about herself in her new outfit, that she decided to look for a job. And that day, she found one. That kind donation of the handbag gave so much dignity and hope, it contributed to changing this women’s future.’
It’s time to start building your bag! This years campaign runs from Saturday 19th November 2016 to Saturday 3rd December. See the flyer below for some suggestions on what to put in your handbag.
