The "It's in the Bag" Christmas campaign idea came to us when we realised that we seem to manage the needs of children at Christmas, ensuring they're cared for and made to feel special, but the same can't always be said for those women who put the needs of others before their own. We wanted to make them feel special.
And so the campaign began - we asked Australians to donate a handbag they no longer used, fill 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.
What you put in your gift will depend on your bag size, your budget and your imagination.
Here are some ideas...
Baby wipes, cleansing wipes, tissues
Shampoo and conditioner, shampoo in a can
Toothpaste and toothbrush
Hair ties and hair brush
Movie voucher, gift voucher, meal voucher
Jewellery or trinket
Lotions, creams, smelly stuff
Card or note
Socks and Undies
As you can see, what you can put in YOUR kind donation is so individual, so very much appreciated and can make a woman feel very special.
This is an annual campaign, which in 2016, runs from Saturday 19th November 2016 to Saturday 3rd December. We can then get all the kind donations delivered out to the charities that take care of women in need over the Christmas period and will also allow us enough time to get them to remote areas before christmas.
