SUPPORTING WOMEN AT CHRISTMAS

Share the Dignity is an Australian charity for women, that strives to make a real difference in the lives of those experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, or doing it tough. They distribute period products to women, girls, and anyone who menstruates who needs support.
