BRAS FOR FREEDOM
Support sex trafficking survivors in Mozambique, Uganda, and
Did you know that approximately 21 million people are currently enslaved in human
trafficking? That is one in every 335 people on the planet.
Did you know that only 1 to 2% of the victims are rescued?
Did you know the rate of recidivism is extremely high? Many women return to
prostitution because it is what they have known for so long and have no other option.
“Free The Girls” is an organization that has developed a program that provides women
a chance to make a living selling bras in the second-hand marketplace to prevent a return
to the prior lives. They journey with them on the path to independence and restore who
they were designed to be... whole, worthy, and FREE.
By receiving a starting inventory from the Free The Girls, the women are able to become
an entrepreneur in their own community that is an environment of women selling to
women. This allows them a safe economic opportunity, and for many, provides not only
for themselves, but their children as well.
Why bras? The countries the organization works with have few or no bra
manufacturers. As a result, owning a bra is a luxury and a symbol of status. Women
that have the local resources are willing to pay for something we get rid of once we do
not need them anymore. An amazing second life for something that we dispose of
regularly just because of fashion.
Do you have a bra sitting in your drawer for a long time untouched? Donate your
new or gently used bras, any size or color, including sport and maternity.
