Victorian election 2022: Dan Andrews’ $23m pledge to hand out free tampons slammed by charity


A charity stalwart has been snubbed by Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews after making a $23million election pledge off the back of her volunteer work. 

Founder and director of the Melbourne Period Project Donna Stolzenberg has revealed Mr Andrews refused to give her charity a ‘shout out’ after asking her to back his election promise to provide free tampons to women in need. 

Ms Stolzenberg, who was nominated for last year’s Victorian Australian of the Year, has spent the past eight years, with the help of volunteers, toiling on the streets of Melbourne helping to distribute tampons.
