Blogger Bra Drive *Updated*

mrspatebradrive

So in my search for other South Carolina Bloggers I stumbled across Mrs. Pate. I'm so glad I did! She is hosting a Blogger Bra Drive for Free The Girls! I want to get in on this. I haven't worked out all the details in my head about how I'll have this drive. But I know I will at least be e-mailing all my family and friends. I'll have to come up with a creative way to collect them.

Free the Girls is a non-profit organization that collects gently used bras to generate jobs for women who have come out of sex slavery. It's an awesome model they have. Take some time to Check out their website. A co-worker told me about this group a while back, but I haven't looked into how to help yet. I'm excited to do this!

Also, Check out Mrs. Pate's Bra Drive Page and consider getting in on this!

*Updated* So I've done some more thinking. I'm going to have a giveaway for those who donate bras for the drive. I'm still working on the package but it is awesome, I promise!

So if you have bras to send me, simply comment with your e-mail or e-mail me directly {danielle[at]sweet-southern-girl[dot]com} and I will give you my shipping address. The drive is over on July 31st so try to have your bras to me by July 28th so I can get them together to ship out. ALSO Free the Girls has a "buck and a bra" system where they ask for a $1 donation to accompany each bra to help with the costs of international shipping. If you can please send a buck a bra, if not, still send your bras! I'll work on getting together the donations if necessary.
