We believe that sanitary items should be a right NOT a privilege!
Over a million young girls miss more than 6 weeks of school a year due to the lack of access to sanitary pads.

BERNINA RSA want to partner with you to give girls and women the sense of dignity and productivity they need.

Please use your creativity and all the colors of the rainbow, to make and donate at least 5 re-useable sanitary towels to those in need. We will be sharing links to patterns you can use, or you are welcome to create your own.

You may drop your donation at your nearest BERNINA dealership. Please drop off or post your donation in a zipped, buttoned or string tied bag.


Your donation automatically enters you into our Rainbow Competition where you stand a chance to win 1 of 5 prizes  >


Please contact BERNINA for more information.
Competition closes 31 October 2016!
