Business Kudos: “Free the Girls” Charity to Stop Human Trafficking
For over two years, Personally Yours Lingerie has been pleased to support Free the Girls, a charitable project that collects donated bras in order to save women from human trafficking and help those affected to rebuild their lives. In additional to providing donated bras for the women to wear, Free the Girls also teaches them how to sell the bras, which creates a way for them to earn a living while staying safely in groups. Donated bras can be new, but often are personal bras that no longer fit. In fact, women sometimes bring their entire collection to the shop for a fitting “diagnostic” and leave the ones that no longer serve them.
Since 2017, the shop has collected over 600 bras, which greatly pleases Owner Suzi Manning. “I am so grateful to everyone who has made donations and hope they continue to send them in,” shares Manning. “We also offer a private room for ladies to come together to celebrate their favorite cause and friendship. Women who book these parties are able to enjoy an evening of Bra 101 fitting and fun. At the end of the night, Personally Yours will donate 10 percent of the gross proceeds to the charity of their choice.”
Personally Yours looks forward to continuing to provide this worthy service for the community.
