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.

UPDATE MAY 2020 - ANNOUNCEMENT: COVID-19 Policy / Statement
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve globally, we find ourselves in unprecedented times. We want to take this opportunity to update you on some essential measures we are implementing to minimise the risk of exposure to the virus for both our volunteers and our clients.
As a national charity, our commitment is to ensure our services remain available and reliable over the coming weeks and months to ensure that our clients continue to receive our vital support. To do this, we have conducted a review of our practice, and as a result we have introduced the following with immediate effect;

• The Australian Government has recently imposed a 14 day isolation period for all Australians and visitors entering Australia. In line with this, we will not be accepting donations from anyone who has travelled in the last 14 days or has been in close personal contact with someone know to have contracted the COVID-19 virus or who may have travelled either domestically or internationally in the past 14 days.

• We have ceased all corporate and public packing days for the foreseeable future to ensure social distancing is maintained.

• We are isolating all donated products for a period of 14 days before packing and distributing.

• We have introduced individual volunteering opportunities, whereby individuals are provided with a packing kit that will allow them to sort products and create care packs at their location.

• We now require all drop off locations and volunteers handle donations with gloved hands and ensure that their hands are washed thoroughly with soap and water afterwards.

During this global crisis, we know that our clients will suffer greatly. Now more than ever, we want to ensure that we can maintain our services to support them wherever practically possible. To this end, we ask you to continue to support us.

We are closely monitoring the health and safety advice issued by the Australian Government and will continue to keep you updated to any changes to this policy.

Never before had it been so important for us to pull together as a community to support each other, our family, friends, neighbours and the vulnerable within our communities. Our hope for you all is that you stay well, stay kind and continue to support us so that we can continue to support those who are doing it very tough in our community right now.

Yours sincerely

Katryna Robinson

Founder & CEO

(Updated March 2020) Please take the time to read these important FAQ’s to make us as effective as possible. Every Little Bit Helps supports people in need by creating care packages and we ONLY collect SAMPLE SIZED toiletry products. If the item you are looking to donate is not pictured, please check with us first.

There is a very good reason why we only collect sample sized products and that is because we put them into care packages that are approximate 20cm x 30cm. Our recipients take great comfort in receiving something they can call their own. For homeless, and in particular rough sleeper homeless, these items can be carried in their pocket.

We provide 2 kinds of Care Packs – a standard care pack made up of donated hotel toiletries as well as items that are found in airline amenity kits such as sleeping masks, socks and ear buds.

The ‘lady care packs’ we supply to women’s refuges and homeless shelters contain sanitary items, a hair comb, cosmetics, deodorant and perfume in addition to the basic toiletry items. We assume that these are the items that would not be the priority to pack if someone was fleeing a violent situation.

Drop off location: We have a strong preference that all donations are sent to us at PO Box 340, Forestville NSW 2087. We find that most parcels cost less than $10 to post.
