Every Little Bit Helps is a charity. Established in July 2014, we collect, pack and redistribute unwanted hotel toiletries, inflight amenity kits, cosmetic and make-up samples to those in need including the homeless, asylum seekers and victims of domestic violence as well as troubled youths through Women’s Refuge, Homeless Shelters, Youth Centres, Asylum Centres and Community Centres as well as via small Government and Community Groups.

The catalyst for establishing Every Little Bit Helps was learning that while there are many facilities providing laundry and shower facilities, most are able to supply little more than running water and previously did not have regular and reliable access to basic toiletry products.

We have drop-off locations throughout Australia. Find your nearest drop-off location using our Drop Off Locator Tool. Alternatively you can mail your donations to us at PO Box 340, Forestville NSW 2087.

Our organisation is proudly run 100% by volunteers across Australia but like every organisation we need to cover our running costs. These include shipping and distribution of our kits to the people we support, annual insurance and the bags we pack our kits in to. We appreciate any offers of financial support.
