If you’ve known us for a minute, you know that our passion is women. Locally in 2021, we are excited to support Dove Recovery House. Their mission is to serve the most vulnerable women in our community—women who have experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse; women who have experienced homelessness; women who are struggling with substance use disorder and have nowhere else to turn. Throughout the year, we will take the gently loved bras you so generously donate with the products we receive from our vendors and will hold professional bra fitting events for these women. These fittings also include providing each woman with bras that fit!
This weekend we were introduced to ZABRA: A free Bra Initiative by John and Stella Mountain, owners of Ntaba Coffee Haus in Louisville, KY. ZABRA collects pre-owned and new bras for women who can’t afford their own. The bras are given to organizations across the world with most going to organizations in South Africa. In addition to bras, we can donate gently loved (clean and unstained) panties and other intimates. The ZABRA initiative empowers women by providing them with something we all take for granted, underwear.
Wondering how you can help? As allows bring your clean, gently loved bras – and now underwear, to Uplift where we will either use them for the ladies at Dove Recovery House or we’ll get them to John and Stella for their efforts with ZABRA.
We have been so blessed by so many. These opportunities to give back and support other women mean the world to us and we are beyond honored to do this with you. “The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your own arm. Trust Yourself.” May we continue to trust and live this out well – together!
