#itsinthebag campaign

You have the power to make life better for a woman or girl experiencing homelessness or poverty this Christmas. Donate to our Christmas collection “It’s In The Bag” by providing pads and tampons, personal hygiene products and everyday luxuries to homeless women, women at risk or women experiencing domestic violence. It’s simple!

First of all, choose a handbag in good condition that you no longer use, or purchase a new one if you wish.  Then, fill it with items that would make a woman feel special, pop in a thoughtful note or Christmas card and show her someone cares. Show her that she matters because everyone deserves to feel that way. (PLEASE – NO FOOD ITEMS, RAZORS OR SCISSORS)

Once you have filled your bag with goodies, please drop to Michelle Heaton, Cooloola Cove Smiles at the Dolphin Centre, TIN CAN BAY by December 2.
