Share the Dignity works to ensure every woman is afforded the dignity they deserve.
We know that with #itsinthebag we have created a truly special way to connect caring strangers with women in need, through the simple object of a handbag. As a result, we are so excited to announce that we are in the final steps of bringing a long term dream of ours to life by creating a range of handbags of our very own for you to purchase for yourself, as a gift or to donate, with all proceeds being used to help with the programmes so we can continue our work.
Each bag will be named after one of the remarkable women for which our #itsinthebag Xmas gifts has helped.
We have two limited edition bags available in 2017
The Jane bag is a chic black tote bag with long straps and top zipper, a zippered back pocket, multiple inside pockets and the signature Share the Dignity lining. It is a perfect bag for the workplace, out and around town, or for you to use for next year's Christmas #itsinthebag!
The Jane bag is made from a good quality PU faux leather and is vegan friendly. Bag Dimensions are 46cms wide, it has a base width of 11cms, it is 32cms deep with a 24cm handle length.
Share the Dignity is so excited to be bringing you the Handbag with Hear!
The Jane was named after a courageous woman who left an abusive home with her two young boys and her car and ended up in a domestic violence refuge on Christmas Day 2015. When Jane was given an #itsinthebag, she was overwhelmed with emotion at the thought that someone she didn’t know had given her a gift. After opening her bag she cried again at the kindness that was shown, everything was there that she would never have thought she would be without, like a toothbrush and toothpaste, along with shampoo and conditioner a lovely scarf. It was all too much for Jane and she was crying with gratitude. It was when Jane checked the pocket of the bag and found a $20 Rockmans voucher that she again broke down. When Jane ensured her boys got back to a new school, Jane took herself to the Rockmans sale and bought herself a new dress. Jane felt a million dollars in that dress – so good that she applied for a job, wore the dress to the interview, and got the job.
