Free the Girls
Let’s face it: the back of your underwear drawer is most likely a graveyard of bras you don’t wear anymore or that never fit right in the first place. By contrast, second-hand clothing is a profitable market in many countries around the world. Bras are sought after items. Some of the girls in the Free the Girls associated programs are making 5x the minimum wage in their community by selling bras! And even better, bras provide an opportunity for these women to work with other women, since they have a history of being abused and used by men.
A “bucket of bras” (bra donation bin) at your business, church or school is a great way to support the program and foster community involvement. SIG is currently seeking additional areas to place a “bucket of bras” and we are very appreciative of all those businesses who already have “buckets of bras” at their locations.
Over 3000 bras were collected this year by Soroptimist International of Gresham (SIG)
and shipped to Free the Girls to help women rescued from human trafficking in
