Donate bras to help fight human trafficking – event on July 10

June 25, 2011

There will be another event on July 10 like the one I posted about here where you can donate bras to help fight human trafficking. You will be able to donate your bras at the Hunter’s Crossing Chick-fil-a on Sunday, July 10 from 10 a.m. -2 p.m.! The folks from Free the Girls will be set up in the Chick-fil-a parking lot (remember Chick-fil-a is closed on Sunday so you won’t be able to pop in for lunch.) Their last bra drive on May 16 brought in 1,850 chances to change someones life, and they’re hoping to double that number. This will be a rummage sale-type event.

 
Contact Aryn Faughnan at arynf04 (at) gmail (dot) com for more information.
Here’s more info on the organization:
 
Can the old bras in the back of your underwear drawer help fight modern-day slavery? Free The Girls says, “YES!” Free The Girls, a new cause-focused company centered around fighting human trafficking, is asking ladies to gather up their gently used bras—and ask friends, family, co-workers and local businesses to do the same.

You can also mail your bras directly to:
Free The Girls LLC
8200 S. Quebec St. #A3-137
Centennial, CO 80112

More Info:

“The bras are sent directly to a safehouse in Mozambique for women who have been rescued out of slavery,” says Kimba Langas, Co-Founder of Free The Girls. “The girls are given the bras as starting inventory for their own micro-business selling the bras. So something that has given us “support” can provide support to other women in need. It’s all about creating opportunities.”

For more information, visit www.freethegirls.com or find them on Facebook.

 
Thanks, Knoxville Mamabelle!
