Two Good Care Campaign
Earlier this year we met Lisa McAdams. She told us:
"The day I arrived at the refuge I was handed some basics, shampoo, conditioner, soap. I was grateful to receive them as I had arrived without my own toiletries. The thing that touched my heart about it was they were wrapped in cellophane with a pretty purple bow. This small act of kindness was so pivotal in my healing.”
Inspired by Lisa's story we attempted to share this 'purple bow' moment with other women in shelters around NSW for Mother's Day.
The outcome was a care pack including:
1 x 250ml Shampoo with Black Pepper, Chamomile and Sage
1 x 250ml Conditioner with Lavender, Chamomile and Sage
1 x 250ml Body and Face Moisturiser with Bergamot and Vetiver
1 x 250ml Hand and Body Cleanser with Orange Peel, Cedarwood and Sage
All products are free of Paraben. Only natural essential oils used
Number of Two Good care bottles labelled and filled by Two Good volunteers
Number of care packs bought and delivered by our delivery partners Deliveroo and Sendle
Number of care packs sent to refuges - i.e. potential purple bow moments
Number of refuges receiving Two Good care packs across NSW
From here we're looking to secure ongoing hospitality contracts for Two Good Care products:
- Shopping Centres
If you have any contacts please introduce us!
Our goal is to provide this impactful experience to refuges across the country.
Hi Two Gooders,
The women at Lou's place were so excited to receive there twogood care packs for mothers day. Mother's day can be a very emotional time for some of the women that come to Lou's place so for them to receive these packs that were made with such care brought a smile to their faces. they could not believe they had been given something so luxurious and it allowed them to pamper themselves and as one woman put it they would smell absolutely divine. Kind regards

Good morning Two Gooders,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and you company for these wonderful products. The Wilcannia Safe house accommodates clients who are victims r escaping domestic & family violence also homeless clients. Our clients come to us with little or with nothing, so we are very grateful for people such as yourselves who give generously. For victims that have had put downs or abuse occur to them some from childhood and on a daily basis, it's hard to speak about deserving better treatment, words such as self-worth, love & respect is only a myth in a sense to them. But a distraction of giving makes a big difference, especially when you say this is just for you, please take some time to care for yourself, your products give that. Personal timeout in a warm bath or shower with a beautiful long lasting sense of cleanliness and smell they can accept and see and feel. Faces light up and they tent to forget the imposing issues just for a moment. So thank you for making a difference for our clients in lifting the spirits with your gifts.
Mary Ronayne, DVSM Wilcannia Manager
Hi Two Gooders,
I was away when they were received but as soon as I got back I had someone ask me where they came from and she states she "loved" the products, she stated "they were really good quality and my hair has never felt nicer and silkier. I feel really relaxed". So even a week after they were received the ladies were still talking about them. They all thanked me and stated they were really happy with the products, with another lady comment "I feel really special".

Hi Two Gooders,
I work with women who have been impacted by domestic violence. Some of these women are in transitional houses who left their home with nothing. I gave out the bags to these women who were brought to tears as they have had nothing "special" given to them for a long time. Some of these women self esteem is so low they that could not believe that I would even think of them with these gifts. These women put all their money into caring for their children and do not even think of themselves in any way. These gifts let women know that they are no alone and that organisations and individuals do care about them and their situation. I hope it does go nationwide as it is very worthwhile and appreciated.
Thanks, Jenny Ashwood.
So Rob.. Two Good was an absolute hit at Nagle House today.. what beautiful products they are. We currently have five ladies at Nagle House who all received a pack and there were two past residents there as well. A new resident arrives next Wednesday so we can give her one as... she is coming from prison. The ladeies were having fun checking out who the donation came from.
One lady who visits us occasionally was at lunch today. She has many struggles and having a shower is just..out of the question..until today. We were so inspired by having the Two Good products that we somehow enticed Gina to have a shower.. wash her hair and use the moisturiser.. you cannot imaging what an achievement that was. The best thing was when she said "I feel so much nicer".
