The annual itsinthebag campaign presented by Sha

first_imgThe annual #itsinthebag campaign, presented by Share the Dignity, collects bags and items specifically for women at Christmas time. People are asked to donate a handbag they no longer use, fill it with items that would make a woman feel special and even pop a thoughtful note into the bag to show her that someone cares and that she matters.This year, helloworld Traralgon got right behind the charitable campaign, with Tina Hunt, owner and business manager at Traralgon turning her helloworld store into a collection point for bags to be dropped off.“We ended up with 39 full bags, another 8 empty bags and also 2 shopping bags full of goodies to put in the bags!” said Tina.“What I like the most about this charity is that even though it is a national charity, all items collected stay locally, wherever they are collected from. So the bags and goodies we collect are distributed within our own community.” she added.The “It’s in the Bag” Christmas campaign idea was borne out of an observation that as a society we seem to excel at looking after the needs of children at Christmas time, ensuring they’re cared for and made to feel special, but the same can’t always be said for those women who put the needs of others before their own.Congrats to all who donated and also to the team at helloworld Traralgon for getting behind this great initiative!MAIN IMAGE: Tina Hunt at helloworld Traralgon – and the haul of goodies to be donated helloworldlast_img
