Donate a Mask with SisterWorks
Donate a Mask with SisterWorks
Make a difference…..
For every $10 donated to SisterWorks, we will provide and distribute a DHHS mask to a vulnerable member of our community. Our goal is to donate 5000 masks.
By selecting the “Donate a Mask” page through our online shop, you will donate $10 to SisterWorks, which we will use to make a DHHS Compliant Reusable Face Mask. SisterWorks will then distribute this mask to a vulnerable member of our community.
It is our passion at SisterWorks to support not only our Sisters and their community but also the wider community around us. Over the past couple of months, we have created some beautiful friendships with local organisations through the donation of our Reusable Cloth Face Masks. These organisations have been providing incredible services for the vulnerable members of our community, keeping them safe and healthy during this difficult time. These organisations include:
- Anonymous X: 100 masks donated in care packs distributed to those who live on the streets of Melbourne https://www.anonymousx.com.au/

Recently SisterWorks had the privilege to be sponsored by Laing O’Rourke and South Eastern Program Alliance (SEPA) for our mask donation project. This donation has benefited three organisations that work to protect women from family violence.
- InTouch: 150 masks https://intouch.org.au/
- WISHIN: 150 masks https://www.wishin.org.au/
- SECASA: 150 masks https://www.secasa.org.au/
This incredible response has inspired us to accelerate our mask donation project even further. Our next step is to connect with our amazing community, to work together and help those who are less fortunate. Through our ‘Donate-a-mask’ program, you can give back to our community by donating a DHHS compliant reusable face mask for those in need.
The only way out of these challenging times is to walk through it together. At SisterWorks, we truly believe that “Together we are Strong”. So, if you have the means, we do encourage you to ‘Donate–a–Mask’ today.
