It's In The Bag

Workplace Diversity are calling for your donations to support women and girls in need.

Sunday 25 November is the ‘International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women’. To support this important day, UNSW is again participating in the ‘It’s In The Bag campaign’ which will run from Thursday 22 November to Thursday 29 November.  This timeframe ensures that we can transport your donations to the charity’s central collection point by their due date.

The charity requests donations of new or no longer used handbags (in good condition) and brand new toiletries (packaged and unopened) which they will pass onto women in need. Recommended items include shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, sanitary products.
