Escabags is a not-for-profit charity still very much in it’s infancy who distribute ‘Escape Bags’ to over 200 stockists throughout Australia, a number that continues to grow every week.
100% of the funding acquired to date has been as a result of successful fundraising events and one-off donations from individuals and organisations, which is why the below corporate partners play such a vital role in supporting our initiative.
“We first heard of afledgling Escabags and the founder of this really worthwhile venture through an Australian TV news item.
We immediately knew this was something that Cottons had to get involved in, as we have been long term supporters and champions of positive choices for women since our inception in the mid 1990’s.
We are so pleased we connected with (and support with product donations and other help) what is now a rapidly growing registered Australian charity focused on assisting the victims of abuse and domestic violence and encouraging them to take positive steps forward. The World needs positive change and Escabags are helping to make
Violence against women (and indeed against men) has no positive place in anyone’s life, and Escabags offer encouragement and practical assistance to help victims move beyond being victims.”

“Kennards Self Storage are pleased to be able to support worthy initiatives in our own modest way. Helping charities when we can, such as Escabags with donated storage space is our small contribution to assist them in their endeavours to help others less fortunate. Supporting initiatives for the homeless, victims of abuse, third world poverty, children’s education and natural disasters. It is the self less dedication of these charities that is to be commended and acknowledged.”

“Nothing gives us greater joy than supporting a charity like Escabags. Creating awareness and much-needed support for victims of abuse is something we quickly jumped on board to champion. Physical abuse is an ever-growing, terribly sad reality for many people and every small step for the better is a step in the right direction. We are a quintessential Aussie pub. We strive to be a venue that is for the community. We work day in, day out to be a place for our locals to step away from their day to day lives. This has been the case since our very f irst Publican, Hilda ran the operation back in the 1930’s. She was a feisty woman who made a name for herself in the Illawarra for her passion, style and drive. She created a benchmark for the community spirit we strive to uphold today.
Escabags, to us, has that same sense of drive and community support. We see the emotion and love that goes into ensuring Escabags can support as many victims as possible.
We are proud to be stockists of the Escape Bags, and as heart-wrenching as it is to hand over these safety bags to a victim in need, we are so grateful we have been given the opportunity to provide them with something of great need. We are also truly thrilled to offer Stacy Jane a place to call her own in an office space. A place she can focus, plan and create many more avenues of support for victims escaping abusive and dangerous situations. Having Escabags HQ right under the same roof as us is something we are proud we were able to do. We can’t wait to see
just how much more Escabags is capable of, and we encourage anyone who can support them in any way to do so.”

At Dymocks Children’s Charities our mission is to promote a love of reading and improve literacy outcomes for children in Australia. We run four programs that provide brand new books to children in priority locations in Australia. We support children who have little or no access to good books; our programs restock priority primary school libraries, community centres, hospitals, classrooms and provide books for children to take home and cherish.
We also partner with other non-profit organisations, to reach the most vulnerable children in society. We want to ensure more children have access to good books so they can do well in school and lead healthier and happier lives. We believe all children should have the tools they need to thrive, regardless of their circumstances.
To date, we have provided over 200,000 brand new books to over 140,000 children in 638 locations around Australia.
We are very proud to be partnering with Escabags by providing children’s storybooks for them to include in their parent and child bags.

We at Webb Financial are passionate about community and support a number of community based organisations by lending accounting and financial expertise. When the Escabags team got in contact we were delighted to be able to help.
Domestic violence is sadly a significant problem in Australia, and we were inspired by Stacy and her story. Being able to work with a team offering support & assistance to the victims of these situations is certainly humbling.
Webb Financial are proud to be partnered with Escabags & look forward to helping make a positive change in the world.
