CHRISTMAS is just over a month away, traditionally a time for giving and receiving.

But for many Australian women every day it can be a struggle to buy the essentials of life.
For the second year in a row Tea Gardens Mum of two Jodie Genner is donating her time and efforts to the ‘It’s in the Bag’ campaign run by the ‘Share the Dignity’ charity.
Myall locals are being asked to donate a handbag filled with some of the necessities most women take for granted.
Jodie Genner told News Of The Area, “The bag can be new or in very good condition, but more importantly it needs to contain some items that will help make some woman’s Christmas a little happier.”
“It can be filled with basic toiletry articles, maybe a scarf, cosmetics, a piece of costume jewellery,” Jodie said.
The bag fillers don’t have to cost the earth, they can be simple things like sanitary needs, a gift card or food voucher.
Last year 50 bags were donated from the Myall Area.
Jodie’s office at Century 21 on Marine Drive at Tea Gardens is once again the drop off point for your donations.
You have until Saturday 2 December to make someone’s Christmas a little bit special.
For more information you can head to the website ‘share the dignity.com.au’.
You’ll find a list of items suitable for inclusion.
You can also contact Jodie on 0438 120 580.
