If you missed it last week, check out the chat I had with Rochelle Courtenay, founder of Share the Dignity.
It’s In the Bag!
Last week, I threw a challenge out to any readers who wanted to get behind Share the Dignity’s annual It’s In The Bag campaign. It involves packing a handbag (new or in good condition) with items that would be useful to a woman who might find herself in a shelter or refuge this Christmas. Of course, this meant I couldn’t let the team down, either! So off to the shops I went. I grabbed a good-sized handbag to fill- and fill it I have! My teenage girls got curious about what I was doing and decided to throw together a bag themselves. I have friends that are madly packing handbags with toiletries and other useful stuff. It seems that the It’s In The Bag campaign is bringing out the best in a lot of people who seem genuinely excited to be able to help someone.
