We’re working towards ending Period Poverty - one cup and cloth pad at a time.
JuJu has partnered with Share the Dignity, an Australian charity who distribute sanitary items to those who are homeless, at-risk or experiencing domestic violence. We believe having access to menstrual products is a right, not a privilege, for all people.
As an organisation, we offer annual corporate sponsorship to Share the Dignity but also realise individuals may wish to contribute in their own way. We facilitate the donation of menstrual cups and cloth pads to Share the Dignity through our site.
These products can be purchased by you for someone in a shelter, at a discounted price on our website and we take care of shipping your order directly to Share the Dignity.
Giving the gift of cloth pads will ensure that vulnerable people in our communities have access to comfortable, reusable pads that can be washed and worn again each month to significantly reduce or eliminate the cost of purchasing disposables. It truly is a gift that keeps giving – every month!
Where will my donation go?
Your donation is sent will be sent directly to Share the Dignity. Share the Dignity will then distribute your donation to people in need across Australia.
