30 + 30 and Why it Matters


“…it’s what makes us able to extend the offer of empowerment to the women we serve and work with.”

30,000 bras.

That’s our End-of-Year-Giving goal this year. We’re focusing on what makes us tic, what makes us unique, what makes us able to extend the offer of empowerment to the women we serve and work with.

Our supporters, you all, have been remarkably and astoundingly generous with your finances this year. We have never seen such an outpouring of financial donations as we have in 2018, and the plans we have for the next three years because of this abundance - oh, friends, we can’t wait to share!

But the foundation of who we are remains bras. And since we are in a good place donation-wise this year, we want to extend the invitation to partner with us for Giving Tuesday and End-of-Year-Giving in collecting and donating bras.

If we reach our goal of 30,000 bras by Dec 31st, we will have secured the next two entire shipments to our overseas partners. That means over 30 businesses will have inventory. That’s 30 families. 30 women. 30 people whose lives yours has played a part in this holiday season. People just like Maria.

Her story is one of determination, inspiration, and HOPE.

So clean out the drawers!

Gather friends for your Christmas party and have a bra and a buck be the “cover charge”. Hang brassieres on a tree in your shop window. Be creative! Have fun! But be generous.

And while our goal is 30,000 bras and $30,000 - the other beautiful part is that if you and your community meet the 30+30 goal, you have more finances to give generously! You can spread the holiday cheer, pass on the gratitude and generosity to other causes and other nonprofits that you love and support. We want to cultivate a spirit of generosity and sacrificial giving amongst our supporters and all we come in contact with. So even if it’s not FTG, please give somewhere this year. As one of our brave women once told us to share with supporters;

You can not get tired of giving,
because we’ve already shown you what we can do when you give.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We can’t wait to see all the bras come in from your efforts this year! Don’t forget to tag us on social media @freethegirlsbras so we can share your successes, too!
