SHARE THE DIGNITY

White Lady Funerals is proud to announce our partnership with Share the Dignity for the August Share the Dignity sanitary drive.

Each White Lady funeral home will act as a donation point for female sanitary products, and all donated products will be collected by Share the Dignity and distributed to women and transgender people in need.

White Lady Funerals proudly supports Share the Dignity.

Share the Dignity is an organisation with the aim to provide homeless and at risk women nationally with sanitary products to allow them a sense of dignity at a time when they need it most.  

5 Hard Facts

  1. Over 105,000 people are currently homeless in Australia; 44% of them identify as women. (Reported by Homelessness Australia)
  2. In 2015, at least 75 women died from domestic violence.
  3. One in four women has experienced physical or sexual violence.
  4. 25% of homelessness in women is due to domestic and family violence.
  5. Service stations and public restrooms are these women's best friends, especially during their menstrual cycle; using what hand towels and toilet paper they can find to make themselves make-shift pads.

The homeless women and women who have fled domestic violence are using newspaper as pads as they often leave violent relationships with nothing and using their last $5 on sanitary items is not something they are choosing to do.

Share the Dignity believes that sanitary items should be a right NOT a privilege, and that no woman should suffer the indignity of choosing between eating or buying sanitary items. 

Share the Dignity is the driving force behind a number of community campaigns to donate and help give support to these women in need.

White Lady Funerals will be supporting the following campaigns

  • April and August sanitary drives across Australia

You can now donate female sanitary products to any White Lady funeral home in Australia and we will in turn distribute your donations to Share the Dignity.

  • The #itsinthebag Christmas appeal in November

Donate your spare handbags filled with thoughtful items such as toiletries, sanitary items and anything practical and appropriate to any White Lady funeral home, and these will be given to women in need in time for Christmas.
