A few of the ladies at Arcare Helensvale had the opportunity to enjoy a special morning tea organised by Australian charity, Share the Dignity.
Share the Dignity gives sanitary products to homeless women and fights for domestic violence victims.
Our clients had never heard of this charity before and were pleasantly surprised that there is an organisation out there doing such good things.
It was a wonderful moment of women getting together to help and strengthen each other.
This charity is meaningful to all as it ensures that everyone is afforded the dignity that so many of us take for granted.
And the donations directly benefit women in need of all kinds of help.
Each year, Share the Dignity collects thousands of sanitary products for them.
Being able to provide these women with the opportunity to feel valued and respected will make a big difference in their lives.
Helensvale Library would love for the Arcare community to participate in this event again next year!
Our clients were happy to know that they contributed what they could to these women, by filling a bag with essentials and helping out in such a simple way.
Client Marea especially enjoyed the hands-on experience of assisting others and having a good chat amongst it all.
