Every Little Bit Helps is a registered charity. Established with the specific purpose of supporting people in need, our belief is that every Australian should have access to a toothbrush and a bar of soap, and that by providing basic toiletries to people in need we are providing them with not only the essentials, but also a little bit of dignity.
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.
By receiving donated hotel toiletries, airline amenity kits, as well as make-up and cosmetic samples and sanitary items we are able to supply these products, packed into our care packages to 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.
Who Is ELBH
Established in July 2014 by Katryna Robinson, Every Little Bit Helps was founded out of Katryna’s personal desire to do more to support people in need.
Armed with a basket of toiletries collected by Katryna’s husband on work trips, one day in late July 2014 Katryna visited a homeless community under the Sydney Harbour Bridge where she found more than 20 men and women that gratefully accepted the toiletries.
From this small basket of products Every Little Bit Helps has grown to an organisation that has collected and redistributed over 1 million products to the homeless, victims of domestic violence, asylum seekers and at risk youth. These products are donated by airlines, hotels, and individuals that travel regularly.
