See this is the deal, us blogger ladies are holding bra drives to collect bra's and send them to Free The Girls!
What's a bra drive? Well, lets see. Do you have bra's you don't wear? You know those ones that you bought because they were on the sales rack but, they just don't fit right, and be honest your still rocking an old nursing bra or sports bra because lets be real, they are about 1000 more comfortable?
Do you have "that drawer" where its like a landmine every time you open it?
Things are spring out at you from every direction and you break a sweat trying to get them all wrangled and back in?
Do you have some friends that you KNOW have the same drawer?
Wanna thin out the pack? Get some girls together, everyone bring over their unwanted, unneeded, or what was I thinking, bras, voila! Bra Drive!
Yes, it's that easy.
Last month, my sister called, told me about free the girls, and asked if I could donate some bras. So, me being the social media addict that I am facebooked it. Voila, in one week I collected 68 bras! 68! One dear, super sweet, lady (ok quick side track I ADORE this lady, she and her daughter, Handmade By Hilary, threw my baby shower in February, I'm not lying when I say it was nicer than my wedding! They are just the cutest, sweetest, amazing, loving, crafty ladies I know.) had her birthday while I was collecting bras so instead of presents she asked for bras. Not only did get give me a huge bag of bras but also donated money to ship them.
Be creative ladies.
So. Why bras?
By donating a bra, you are giving a women that has been rescued out of sex trafficking a way to make a living. These bra's are highly sought after items. To think bras, things that we are dying to take off by the end of the day are so sought after that a lot of the girls make 5x the minimal wage.
I can give you all the status and all the numbers, but numbers lose heart. You can't connected with numbers.
So meet the Freed Girls.
Check out the drive information and rules here. Grab a button, and lets rock and roll ladies.
Oh did I mention not only are you saving a life, but you can win some prizes? A prize to the lady who collects the most bras, and to the most creative drive. FYI, my hubby said I was crazy when I told him what the prizes are.
I would love for you to link up your blogs! I can't wait to read about what you are doing, and more about each of you!
