We can take all sorts of bras: regular, underwire, padded, nursing, sports bras. For this drive, they need to be rewearable!
For very worn, torn, or stained bras, use your threads bag and we can recycle.
At least 50% of us have bras. They are beautiful pieces of personal attire. They are functional wardrobe essentials. They keep us moving.
But we all have the ones we like less, that are a bit worn out, a bit out of style, or just have fallen out of favor.
Every year, Ridwell will pickup your bras with plenty of ‘lift’ left in them and reused by girls and women in our community who can use a little extra support.
A program of National Women’s Coalition Against Violence & Exploitation (NWCAVE), The Gift of Lift’s mission is to collect and distribute new and gently used bras to benefit women and girls who are survivors of domestic violence, rape, sex trafficking, low income, homeless and/or incarcerated.
The Gift of Lift has collected and distributed over 20,000 bras to nonprofits in Washington and Oregon as well as organizations operating nationally and internationally.
