How many bras do you currently have in your underwear draw? Could you imagine not having a choice of which bra to wear or worse, not having a bra at all?
There are many women across the world that don’t have the luxury of owning a bra. For most of us we take the humble bra for granted and are unaware what a bra can do for ladies in need.
Most of these ladies work in some shape or form, most manual labour or at the very least picking fruit and vegetables, and cooking at ground level. A bra would control the breast swing and not only make work easier but also offer them more dignity. In the humid climates the absence of a bra leads to all sorts of medical issues as bras help with allowing air circulation and prevent chafing. Could you imagine what you would have done when you were nursing your children if you didn’t have a bra and a breast pad? Then there are those that have gone through mastectomy. These ladies have already been through so much and to have to walk around with it being so evident to all that pass her, we can only imagine the heartache and the trauma she would go through. Imagine how wonderful she would feel with a mastectomy bra!
Since 2005 Uplift, with the assistance from Intimo and Rotary Australia World Community Service, have sent millions of bras across the world to women in need without compromising their dignity. But to keep up the great work they need our support.
If you have bras that you have out grown, no longer like, never liked, or no longer need, you can donate them to Uplift and change a woman’s life. And we know that when one woman’s life is changed, her family’s life is also changed.
A Fitting Connection is proud to say we are now a drop off point for Uplift donations, located in Greensborough. But if that doesn’t work for you, check out their website as there are drop off and collection points for your bras all around the country.
Please no bodysuits, torsolettes, shapewear, U-bras or bedroom lingerie.
When it’s time to donate, it’s really helpful if you can also leave a gold coin (or even better per bra) to help with the cost of postage.
