Kangaroo Island is getting right behind the “It’s In The Bag” campaign that this Christmas will deliver personal hygiene products and everyday luxuries to women in need.
These could homeless women, women at risk or women experiencing domestic violence.
There are collection points at Kingscote, Penneshaw and Parndana where bags containing hygiene products and luxuries can be dropped off.
Anne Christie has organised a Kingscote drop-off point at The Islander office on Osmond Street, where six bags have already been dropped off.
Mary Northcott had organised a drop-off point at the Penneshaw business centre, while Susie Morris has a collection point at the KI Wilderness Tours office next to the laundromat at Parndana.
All the bags need to be delivered to the mainland by December 2.
Share The Dignity collects thousands of pads, tampons and personal hygiene products every year for women experiencing homelessness and poverty.
It also funds funerals for victims of domestic violence and campaign for justice for women in Australia.
It’s In The Bag Christmas charity campaign idea was instigated when Share the Dignity realised that women in crisis will put the needs of others before themselves, whatever the time of year.
There are 85,000 homeless women who need your help this Christmas. Many have fled domestic violence or experienced extreme poverty.
