Give Bras, Give Back
Each Spring, Sheer partners with corperates and local companies to collect and donate gently used bras to non-profit organizations across Asia who support and aid underprivileged women in need. The recipients of the donations are victims of sex trafficking, crisis pregnancies, refugee status or poverty. Since 2013, Sheer has collected and donated over 10,000 bras and counting.
“Bras are actually a real gap for women in the camp. They are an item that is often asked for by refugees women. This would be an opportunity to make a difference for them.”
–International Rescue Committee(IRC)
Bras are a luxury that many underprivileged women cannot afford. They are the least donated clothing item, yet most needed, for women to gain social acceptance andempower themselves with self-dignity. In many impoverished areas, wearing a bra can be what saves a woman from abuse as it symbolizes respect and status.
Where would the bras go?
Donations are sent to women who are victims of sex trafficking, crisis pregnancies, refugee status and poverty.
