What we collect

Donate to our Christmas campaign #ITSINTHEBAG

Give the gift of dignity

1. How do I contribute?

Choose a bag you no longer use that is in a giftable condition - handbag, rucksack, tote, shopper etc. (The bag needs to be secure so the items do not fall out. No plastic or paper bags please.)

2. Who is this for?

Decide if your #ITSINTHEBAG recipient is going to be a man or a woman. Add a label. 

3. What goes in the bag?

Ask yourself what would someone in crisis need? Chances are they need the same personal care and hygiene products that you do - from a toothbrush to a hairbrush - so pack your bag full of useful things and little luxuries that are relevant for your chosen recipient. Add a thoughtful note or Christmas card and show them that someone cares.

4. When can I make the donation?

Please donate your #ITSINTHEBAG gift throughout the month of November at your local drop off point or participating school.

Haven’t got an unwanted bag at home? Why not pop along to your local charity shop and buy a bag as part of the gift?
