At the heart of Styling You and this label is my desire to lift other women up and that's why I choose to support charities that do that too. In this email, I'm not asking you buy any of our products. Instead, I'm asking you to get behind Share the Dignity's #ItsInTheBag campaign.
Share the Dignity works to make a real, on-the-ground difference in the lives of those experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, or doing it tough. They distribute period products to those in need and work to end what is referred to as "period poverty" - being unable to afford necessary sanitary products.
Of the 3.2 million Australians currently living below the poverty line, 52% of those are women and young girls. Many of them are experiencing period poverty.
#ItsInTheBag is Share the Dignity's biggest campaign. People across Australia fill new or pre-loved bags with essentials and special gifts, donating them to Share the Dignity, so they can be distributed throughout Australia. Last year donations helped the organisation collect more than 134,000 bags.

The 2020 It's In The Bag campaign will run from the November 20 to November 29. This is when you can drop your bags at Bunnings stores nationwide, depending current on COVID-19 restrictions in your state.
If you don't have the time to put together a bag or get to a local Bunnings stores, you can sponsor a bag that will be packed and prepared on your behalf. Read more here.
Donating a bag makes a BIG difference. If you can, please get behind this campaign and help make a fellow Australian woman or teenage girl feel just that bit more cared for this Christmas.
