$100,000 retail value worth of knickers have now been donated to Women's Refuge New Zealand since August 2017 - and it's all thanks to you!
"When it came to choosing a charity to support it was really important that the charity spoke directly to us in terms of their commitment to women. We wanted to be able to have a positive impact directly on those women. Women's Refuge were very receptive to us donating undies to the charity as many women who use their services literally have nothing. A new pair of undies makes us all feel good and if we can make someone feel a little better about themselves then we feel we have achieved a lot." - Sue, Rose & Thorne Bra Guru, Former CEO and Head of Design at Bendon Lingerie.
For every $3 you donated at checkout, we donated a pair of knickers. That's more than 7,770 pairs so far that have been distributed amongst refuges dedicated to providing support and safety to women and children in New Zealand.
You also added some amazing, heartwarming, messages of support with your donations, including:
"You are amazing. Kia Kaha."
"You are beautiful!"
"You are loved <3"
"You are not alone in your journey. Stay strong."
"You deserve support and love!"
"Hope this helps in some small way <3"
The New Zealand Women's Refuge is New Zealand's largest nation-wide organization that supports and helps women and children experiencing family violence. Their vision is for all women and children in New Zealand to live free from domestic and family violence. Read more on the amazing work done by Women's Refuge New Zealand.
Thank you for making this possible! With your help, we're excited to continue to provide ongoing support to Women's Refuge New Zealand. Just $3 can truly go a long way. Donate $3 when you next buy a bra, and we'll donate a pair of knickers to Women's Refuge New Zealand.
Thank you for making this possible!
