Giving Back

A core Pillow Talk value is giving back to the community that has given so much to us and we are so proud to have impacted over 190,00 Australian lives through our donations of $1 from every online and Click and Collect sale. In the last two years, we have donated over $575,000 to local charities. Through our partnership with i=Change, we donate $1 from every online order to one of three Australian charities, and you get to choose where the donation goes! This gives you powerful purpose to your purchase, that extends far beyond our product. The process is easy, simply place your online order and select your chosen charity through the pop up that will appear after you’ve hit the ‘Place Order’ button in the checkout. We’re proud to introduce you to the deserving Australian charities we are currently supporting and those we have supported recently. Together we can make a difference to the lives of Australians in need.

Our 3 Australian charities to receive this donation are; Foodbank “Urgent food relief”; Thread Together “Restore dignity and hope”; and Global Sisters “Back their brilliance”.

Shop with purpose, and together we can change Australian lives. Please read more about our charities below, and the vital work they do with our help.

Global Sisters

NEW!

In Australia, single women over 50 are the fastest growing group to experience homelessness due to financial vulnerability and lack of affordable housing. Global Sisters makes business possible for women who are unemployed or in precarious employment and has already supported over 5,500 women across Australia. Each of these women represents a new business, a new job created or a new pathway to employment- and a real difference to Australia women's economic participation and security. 

Every donation of $18 to Global Sisters provides a day of business education to a woman in need.

Thread Together

NEW!

The floods that hit QLD and NSW have, for thousands of families, destroyed all they own. Over 50,000 people have been impacted.

Thread Together is a first responder to the relief effort and are already supporting those impacted, providing new essential clothing to women, men and children. Temporary clothing hubs are being set up, so people can choose clothing that is most appropriate to them.

Thread Together is working with the fashion industry and charity partners to ensure those affected are given new wardrobes - a first step in providing comfort and dignity during an immensely difficult time.

Every donation of $5 provides a new wardrobe for a person in need.

Foodbank

$87,132 donated (and counting!)

Foodbank is providing urgent food relief to communities impacted by the floods in NSW and Queensland. Foodbank already provides food relief to over 1 million Australians per month, yet now over 2 million Australians are experiencing food insecurity. The impact of the floods have exacerbated the need already created by COVID-19 which has left the demand for food relief outstripping supply. Foodbank is delivering what is needed to communities during these extraordinary times.

Every donation of $1 provides 2 meals to a person that may otherwise go hungry.

[charities_block_3_title] We have previously been able to support the vital work of these incredible Australian charities and have donated over $359,083 collectively to their causes.

Through games, movies, performances and more, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness for a while and get down to the serious business of having fun!

National Breast Cancer Foundation 
National Breast Cancer Foundation

$69,745 donated

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. 1 in 7 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime, and 8 Australian women lose their life every day. The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research to create a better tomorrow for all those impacted.

For every $25 donated, the National Breast Cancer Foundation will support researchers to uncover new drug targets for chemo-resistant breast cancer.

 Women's Community Shelter
Women’s Community Shelters

$223,357 donated 

Existing services cannot meet the demand for emergency crisis accommodation for women who are homeless or escaping domestic violence. More than 50% of women seeking shelter are turned away every night. Across Australia, this equates to over 50,000 women nightly.

Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks.

Women's Community Shelters are dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay and for every $50 we are able to donate, they will be able to provide a hot meal and a safe, comfortable place to stay for one night.
