Help Collect Bras
Collect Bras at Existing Event
If you’re already hosting or attending an event that focuses on women, modern day slavery, human trafficking or social justice, adding bra collection to your event is a great way to engage your attendees and get attention! Just fill out the form below and one of our event concierges will help you come up with creative ways to collect bras at your event! If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Host an Event
You can host a bra drive! It’s such a fun way to bring new people to the cause. And since Free The Girls is a start-up, grass-roots organization, it’s a real blessing for us to have passionate volunteers like you to help us spread the word in other states/regions. (If your business, school, or church is interested in becoming one of our permanent third-party drop-off locations, please visit our Become a Drop-Off page for more information).
Please review our third-party event guidelines and FAQs below. We like to let our supporters use their own creativity to create inspiring events that celebrate and honor women. It can be something small like collecting bras and donations from your friends or co-workers at a happy hour or in-home gathering, or a larger church/ community drive or benefit concert. We believe today’s generation of students is the one that will finally see slavery eradicated once and for all, so we especially encourage high schools and universities to take action and host events!
We want to stay personally connected with you as you plan your event, so please create a FTG account and fill out the below form once you have an event on the calendar so we can help you–and if you desire, promote it on Facebook and our website. We’ll help you plan ahead on how to store and ship the bras you collect. We’re here to support you in any way we can! Below are some materials you may find helpful, including a customizable flyer; info sheet to print and hand out; logo; and sample flyers. If you have questions, please email email@example.com.
2015 UPDATE Free The Girls is now offering Bra Drive Packets for purchase. Make your bra drive an education and engagement campaign using our new Everyday Abolitionist handout which contains Free The Girls information and human trafficking resources. Available in quantities of 25 or 50, packets include one set of our bra drive guidelines, 25 or 50 Everyday Abolitionist handouts printed on card stock and perforated into 4 sections; and several bra arrow signs printed on card stock which will help advertise your bra drive event. Plus we will include a bonus set of Free The Girls promo cards! Packets are reasonably priced to cover only printing costs and will be shipped priority mail in a flat rate envelope.
After Your Event
Once your event is complete please, go to the Bra Donation page on our website to submit the donation that you collected, and for information on where to mail the bras to our bra collection center in Indiana. As a bra drive organizer, you are responsible for shipping the bras to us directly–do not take them to a drop-off location as these are meant for individuals to drop off small quantities of bras.
If you collected any checks or cash at your event please enclose them in a separate envelope with your bra donation shipment.

Register Your event
Please read the Bra Drive Guidelines above before registering your event. Once you register your event using the form below, you will be contacted by one of our volunteer event concierges. They will help make sure you have everything you need for a successful event as well as coordinate with you on whether your want your event publicly posted on our website and Facebook page. You do not have to have all the details finalized to register your event because events are not made public automatically and require confirmation from a Free the Girls representative to be added to our website or social media. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because our event concierges are volunteers, please kindly allow a few days for a response to your event registration.
