Nicole has arranged for a large collection of womens sanitary products to be donated forNational campaign ‘Share the Dignity’.

Nicole who is a support worker and mother of two saw the campaign on Facebook and decided she was going to do something about it.

“They provide sanitary items because these women can’t afford them themselves. said Nicole.

She went in search of a business to be a collection point for the productsandPaula Blackwell of BAS was happy to help in any way possible.

BAS have now registered online to be a collection point.

“It was a real shock factor. Poor sweethearts. What do they do?” said Paula.

“So many people are jumping on board. And great because it’s something we can do here.”

Paula has said that the great thingis that everything goes directly to the cause as well,rather then a certain percentage going to the charity organizers.

The whole campaign is run by volunteers.

Paula said it wasmostly women bringing stuff inhowever men are also welcome to drop by with items as well.

“We will just keep collecting, and getting donations”said Paula.

Nicole is so grateful for the products that have been brought in already and the help of BAS.

It’s very clear that this aspiring woman has a huge heart as her career revolves around helping others as well.

Paula is very committed to the cause, and together these two are achieving some amazing results.

“If I didn’t have Paula as a collection point, I would not have got this far” she said.

“It’s just one less thing that these women have to think about.”

Also helping out are 5TCB with regular promotions forthe campaign on air.

In Australia many homeless women and women in domestic violence shelters have had to face unthinkable indignities during their monthly period.

For these vulnerable and at risk women, each month brought a shameful and traumatic experience, suffering indignities such as having to clean themselves in public toilets and use paper towels or newspaper to create makeshift sanitary pads.

Rochelle Courtney who is the founder of Share the Dignity has since been nominated for Cosmopolitan Woman of the year.

The campaign will also include another collection closer to Christmas that is titled‘Its in the bag’which the womenplan to support and collect for as well.

This Christmas campaign idea was brought up when it seemed clear that at Christmas time, women will put the needs of their children before their own, meaning they often sacrifice a lot and miss out as well.

The campaign asks Australians to donate a handbag they no longer use andfill it with items that would make a woman feel special and even pop a thoughtful note into the bag to show her that someone cares and that she matters.

Items inside can include soap, toothbrushes, movie vouchers, hair ties and anything else that people want to put in.

So when you go for your weekly shop, pop an extra purchase on the tab and head over to BAS during open hours to drop it.

People of all ages and genders are invited to‘share the dignity’, and bring in any sanitary items to add to the collection.
