Dig­nity in the bag as busi­nesses reach out to help

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE word ‘dig­nity’ res­onates with Clare­mont business owner Sahba Salekian.

“As a woman, we go through so many chal­lenges and the one thing car­ry­ing us for­ward is our dig­nity,” said the owner of frozen yo­gurt business Tutti Frutti.

“It doesn’t mat­ter if you’re rich, poor, home­less… if you have dig­nity you can make it through life.”

Mrs Salekian is among sev­eral mem­bers of the Clare­mont Business Group, which formed a month ago, pro­mot­ing Share the Dig­nity’s sec­ond an­nual It’s in the Bag cam­paign that asks peo­ple to do­nate pre-loved hand­bags filled with fem­i­nine prod­ucts.

Share the Dig­nity then dis­trib­utes the full hand­bags to women’s refuges and those in need.

Hand­bags filled with fem­i­nine prod­ucts such as tam­pons, cleans­ing wipes, de­odor­ants and tooth paste can be dropped at Tutti Frutti un­til De­cem­ber 3 and at the Town of Clare­mont’s pop up Christ­mas shop on Bay View Ter­race on De­cem­ber 3.
