Bra donations--another Free the Girls event





Calling East Tennessee Free The Girls fans! Come donate your bras in Alcoa, TN on Sunday, July 10 from 10am-2pm! We will be set up in the Chick-fil-a parking lot. Our last bra drive on May 16 brought in 1,850 chances to change someones life-give or take a few cups. Let's double that number...this will be a rummage sale-type event.

Contact Aryn Faughnan at arynf04 (at) gmail (dot) com for more information.
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.”
