No woman should have to choose between a hot meal for her children and her basic health & hygiene. Because homeless women everywhere are in desperate need of bras and feminine hygiene products, Support the Girls works to collect donations of new/used bras and new sealed packages of tampons and maxi pads for donation to underserved women. From our explosive launch on July 13th, 2015, the response and press coverage has been OVERWHELMINGLY positive and amazing. We've gotten hundreds of requests from people around the world who want to run their own drives, so we need your help to take Support the Girls national and international.
Many women have extra bras shoved in the back of their underwear drawers collecting dust. Getting these unneeded undergarments to women in need helps provide them with necessary physical, mental and emotional support. Think about it: Would you go to a job interview or show up for work if you didn’t have a bra to wear? What about choosing between dinner and a ten-dollar box of tampons? These are just a couple of the dilemmas that thousands of women around the country face every day. Yet there’s currently not a national overarching organization that specifically addresses this problem. Many clothes-donation sites don’t accept or distribute undergarments. And many homeless shelters, already pressed for the funding to provide basic necessities like food and shelter, can provide only limited feminine hygiene products.
With your help, Support the Girls will build the platform and hire the staff needed to provide materials, practical tips, social media tools, press information, and a comprehensive list of vetted shelters and organizations that accept donations of bras and feminine hygiene products. Our non-profit can then provide support and oversight for people around the country and around the world to run bra drives of their own. Together, we can work to solve this problem.
We donated over 10 thousand items in the final 8 weeks of 2015.
Next year, help us donate more than a million.
