ALI BARTER PARTNERS WITH GIFT BOX ORGANIC;
PROVIDING TAMPONS FOR WOMEN IN NEED
Ahead of her biggest run of dates yet, social commentator and femme rock champion Ali Barterwill partner with Saskia Hamplele, former Neighbours actress and founder of social enterprise/start up Gift Box to Help A Sister Out.
In Australia, there are an estimated 46,000 homeless women who, each month struggle with access to sanitary care. Gift Box is the world’s first one-for-one organic tampon brand which provides an immediate solution, where consumers are met with the same quality and price as competing brands but donates the same product to a woman in need.
At Ali Barter’s upcoming One Foot In Tour, Ali and Saskia are launching a collaborative tea towel where the proceeds will be funnelled through Gift Box’s Help A Sister Out donation option. The limited run of tea towels are made in Australia, and feature a design from illustrator and tattoo artist Lily Gloria, who was featured in issue one of Ali’sA Suitable Girl zine.
“We all get our damn periods so I love that if I buy a box of tampons from Gift Box Organic, it means someone more in need than me gets one too. It’s important that all women have access to sanitary care, and tampons are, for many, non-negotiable.” Says Ali.
“The mission of Gift Box has really been driven by a sisterhood of ‘women supporting women’, so to join forces with Ali Barter’s powerful voice has been very exciting.” Explains Saskia. “Ali’s generous contribution will not only provide many more homeless women with tampons, it also adds to the conversation of women’s lack of access to sanitary products and will help reach a wider audience for this commonly overlooked issue.“
Gift Box has partnered with Share the Dignity, The Period Projects and Essentials for Women– ensuring that the donated tampons will be distributed to those who need them the most. Even if you don’t need a sanitary product, anyone can Help A SisterOut at giftboxorganic.com. Tickets to Ali’s One Foot In Tour are available now from alibartermusic.com, A Suitable Girl is out now.
