 YOUR DONATION BENEFITS  

 WOMEN AND MEN IN THEIR MOST VULNERABLE MOMENTS 

HOW CAN I HELP?

You can help by donating items to be used in Self-Care bags, buying items from our Amazon Wishlist, or by donating money to help us to purchase the items we need.

Your donation will help to bring comfort and a sense of community to a survivor of sexual violence, as well as allow them to rediscover their ability to love themselves or continue on their road to recovery.

WHAT ITEMS DO WE NEED?

These bags are designed to be given to a survivor of sexual violence either very soon after the event at a SARC, or during their treatment at a Sexual Violence Charity. As such, the items which we aim to include in all bags are;

  • Bathing products such as soap, bath bombs, exfoliators, bubble bath and shower gel

  • Sanitary items such as sanitary towels and feminine hygiene wipes.

  • Skin care products such as moisturisers, face masks, toners, cleansers and serums

  • Books (please refrain from potentially triggering subject matter)

  • Journals and Stationary  

  • Snacks (with a good shelf-life)

  • Tea bags and Hot Chocolate Sachets

  • Candles

  • Magazines

  • Recipe Cards (preferably easy recipes)

  • Hand-Written Motivational / Inspirational Quotes

  • Any other relaxation / self-care items

All donated items are gratefully received. Please note that donated items will be scrutinised for quality and to ensure perishable products are sealed. If you cannot donate items, please check other ways you can support us on the right hand side of the page. If you have items you wish to donate, please email us and we can arrange collection at a time and place to suit you.

HOW DOES THIS HELP?

After our Founder was raped, it was incredibly difficult for her to find the energy to look after herself at all - this meant that she developed some very unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with the post traumatic stress she was experiencing. She had very little money so could not afford to do anything nice for herself and developed depression and anxiety. She struggled with bathing and self-care because she felt as though she did not deserve to be clean or would never feel clean again. When she began receiving support for post traumatic stress, she was given a bath bomb to use when she got home to help her to relax after a difficult appointment. Going home and being encouraged to relax gave her the freedom to begin to explore her worthiness of self-care and self-love.
