Dunedin Curtain Bank
Are you struggling to stay warm? Curtains make a significant difference to the warmth of a home; a third of all heat loss in an un-insulated home occurs through windows. Even double-glazed windows let out more heat than un-insulated walls. The Dunedin Curtain Bank is a community organization that up-cycles unwanted and unused curtains, lines them, and distributes them to those in need for just $5 per pair. Located at 174 Princes Street, they also accept donations of usable curtains for distribution.
Looking to buy things you need while helping a good cause? ReStore on the corner of Gordon and Vogel Streets is there if you’re looking for something a little different, retro or cheaper including clothes, kitchenware, furniture, books and more. Make your income go further by shopping with ReStore which helps raise money for the Malcam Charitable Trust and for Habitat For Humanity.
Thursdays in Black
Thursdays in Black is a student-led movement working towards a world free from sexual violence, and runs events raising awareness and providing education around the issue of sexual violence on campus. Sexual violence is a significant problem on tertiary campuses, but a different reality is possible. All students and staff of the University of Otago are invited to stand together, and wear all black, some black, or a Thursdays in Black badge, every Thursday to show support and solidarity for survivors of sexual violence. The way to change statistics about sexual violence is to: see, acknowledge, understand and address these issues. If you would like to get more involved, message the Thursdays In Black Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also donate to Thursdays in Black Otago via Givealittle, to help them continue their advocacy and education.
