Every April and August, the community is asked to join in the ‘Dignity Drives’ to help collect sanitary products to donate to women doing it tough, experiencing homelessness or a financial crisis.

For the past three years, Tea Gardens mum, Jodie Genner has been spearheading the campaign across the Myall and Raymond Terrace areas.

Helping out this time around is Tea Gardens Cellars Manager, Christi Currie.

“Jodie’s an inspiration, it’s such a worthwhile cause, I was only too happy to put a donation bin outside ‘Celebrations’.

There are two drop off points in Tea Gardens, one outside Celebrations at the Myall Quays Shopping centre and you can also donate at Jodie’s place of work, Century 21 on Marine Drive.

If you’d like to help, it’s as simple as ‘buy one for me, and one for dignity’.

Jodie has also decided that this will be her last campaign for ‘Share the Dignity’.

“After three and a half years, I need more time for my family, especially with a teenager.”

“I have loved every minute of being a ‘Sheroe’ and I’m grateful for all the lessons I’ve learnt along the way.”

“I really couldn’t have done it without the support of our wonderful community and also from my awesome bosses Bryan and Ivy Stevenson who have helped out in every drive for ‘Share the Dignity” and it’s also been a chance to show my girls how easy it is to help people in need and just be kind.”

Jodie will be handing the reins for organising the ‘Share the Dignity’ campaigns to another Tea Gardens local, Jacqueline Melehan.
