“At blOOturtle, we’re very passionate about our slogan: Thinking Kids – Thinking Planet. The belief that basic personal hygiene products like pads and tampons are luxuries for homeless women and girls at risk of or who are experiencing domestic violence, is beyond words. We want to contribute to being part of the solution,” said Nicola Ganaye, Creative Director of blOOturtle Publishing.
Share the Dignity’s #itsintheBag collection is simple. People are asked to choose a handbag in good condition that they no longer use. Then, they’re asked to fill it with items that have the power to make a woman feel special before popping in a thoughtful note or Christmas card to show the recipient that someone cares. Donations will be accepted between 16th November and 2nd December 2018, with Share the Dignity announcing collection points soon.
“It’s all about showing women, regardless of the challenges they currently face, that they matter and deserve to feel special. Christmas is a challenging time for many people and especially women who find themselves in a situation where everyday necessities such as shampoo, conditioner, a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, deodorant and sanitary items are not easily accessible,” said Rochelle Courtney, founder of Share the Dignity.
