Our Important Charities


Every month we send product donations provided by our top-notch Tsuno customers to a number of Australian charities supporting women experiencing homelessness or those seeking asylum. Each charity has a story and a mission we whole-heartedly support - because everyone deserves to menstruate with dignity.

The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre / Victoria

Based in Melbourne, Victoria, the ASRC are an independent organisation delivering direct services to some of the most disadvantaged people in our community. Over half of their clients have no income at all, and nearly 90% live below the current poverty line. Struggling to make it from day to day without healthcare or settlement services, what they are faced with is destitution and adversity.

The ASRC is providing in-house provision of essential items such as bedding, nappies and phone cards and their ‘supermarket model’ Foodbank gives asylum seekers the autonomy to select food. 

The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is Australia's leading advocate for asylum seekers. Your generous donations make ongoing menstrual dignity possible for these women. These product donations can be tax deductible through the ASRC, and all donations are sent directly to the centre. 

You can help by creating a subscription or purchasing a one-off donation here, which supplies women with sanitary pads through the Foodbank who’d otherwise go without. 

Essentials 4 Women SA / South Australia

In April 2015, Kelly Peacock and Amy Rust started a charity called Essentials 4 Women SA. E4WSA are a product donation campaign seeking sanitary items and new underwear for homeless and disadvantaged women, many of whom are victims of domestic violence. These sorts of items are rarely donated from members of the public for a variety of reasons but mostly because they don’t realise these bare necessities are not provided to women in need for free.

For disadvantaged women, Essentials 4 Women SA aims to provide the basic, but costly, items for feminine hygiene including sanitary products and underwear. Their passion for helping women promises to help empower and enhance the wellbeing and dignity for some of the most vulnerable people in our community.

 

Their long term goal is to get to a point in South Australia were vulnerable women no longer need to menstruate without dignity and to resort to disturbing decisions such as making the choice between either buying food or buying essential sanitary items.

Asylum Seekers Centre (ASC) / Sydney
Based in Sydney, Asylum Seekers Centre (ASC) is a place of nurturing and welcome. It is an oasis for many people, a safe place for those who have fled situations of enormous danger. They provide practical and personal support for people living in the community who are seeking asylum and address the myriad of people’s complex needs offering a huge range of services under one roof - including assisting with groceries and sourcing sanitary items for those experiencing period poverty. Often sanitary items are not at the forefront of peoples minds when donating food, so donating Tsuno products means you are directly impacting whether someone has to choose between food or period products. You are giving dignity.

Period Pack / New South Wales 
Period Pack is a NSW based charity focused on helping homeless and vulnerable women throughout the Northern Rivers. It was founded by lovely Lily, in 2016 when she was in Year 9. Lily passionately organises and facilitates the collection of items such as pads, tampons, oral care products, deodorant and soap. She then packs and distributes these to women via local soup kitchens, refuge housing, women's health centres and indigenous community networks. 
When Lily was confronted with the enormity of homeless or vulnerable women without permanent housing, she made it her mission to provide access to safe and clean sanitary and hygiene products. No woman should have to choose between food for themselves and/or their children and the products they need to comfortably manage their period. Lily's greatest goal is to provide women with the means by which to menstruate with dignity, and to do so as environmentally and sustainably consciously as possible.

Pinchapoo / Australia Wide

Pinchapoo is the biggest national NFP supplier of personal hygiene products and works with over 550 leading organisations, community groups and government institutions as a total hygiene solution, providing a reliable source of customised packs to EVERYBODY in EVERY situation of need
