Share the Dignity

Published: 31 Aug 2020

All MUA Branches are now collection points for the Share the Dignity Drive. Donations can be dropped off all year round to any of our branches around the country.  Homeless women need your help. 


On any given night in Australia, 1 in 200 people are homeless. 44% are female. 27% are children under the age of 18. Family violence is the number one reason people present to homeless services. 55% of females cite this reason. 

When you donate sanitary products to Share The Dignity, you’re donating much more than pads and tampons. You’re giving a woman experiencing homelessness or financial crisis the essentials, so she doesn’t need to choose between food and dignity. 

Next time you’re doing your shopping, keep in mind: one box for me, one box for her. Please bring your donation to the MUA to help women in need. The branch encourages site social clubs and rolling funds to donate to the campaign. The branch can make the necessary purchases on behalf of respective site social clubs if donations are made.
