The Beauty Bank provides Life's Little Luxuries gift bags for women, men and young people leaving a place of domestic violence, in a hardship situation or at risk of homelessness. We collect basic toiletries and hygiene items which must be full size, unopened and in date. Our bags contain at least 15 items including gift items such as jewellery, perfume or aftershave, hairbrushes, scarves etc. In May 2015 making 40 bags was a big month, in May 2016 we made 80 bags and this month we anticipate making and distributing 200+. This is in addition to the many individual skincare care and gift items given to agencies for the pamper days they run for their clients. Product donation is important but so is monetary donation as without it we cannot purchase immediate product needs as no bag goes out incomplete. We are volunteer run and no salaries are paid so all funds are utilised wisely.
In 2019 MyGivingCircle and UBank are giving $50,000 in grants to Australian not-for-profits. It's free to vote for us plus if you donate to us we get an extra vote for every $ you give, even more for regular giving. Please vote and donate to help us share in $50,000 in 2019.
