If you've been lurking around these parts for a while, then you know I like to post information about unique worthy causes. Well this one is directed at the ladies (and any cross-dressing guys who may be reading today.).
How many times have you purchased a bra you just loved the looks of in the store, got it home, and it just didn't fit right, so you threw it in your lingerie draw anyway? Or maybe you lost some weight or gained some weight, and you have some bras that just don't fit your taataas like they once did?

Or perhaps that grape-colored bra that you bought just to wear under one particular dress, and the dress got ruined, and you never wore that bra again? Or nursing bras you no longer need?
There's an organization called Bosom Buddies (I know, I love that choice for their name too!) that will take gently worn bras and recycle them, distributing them to women in need at homeless shelters, halfway houses, cancer survivors, or women transitioning from domestic violence. (Often a women escaping an abusive situation will leave with just the clothes on her back; no time to pack!)
All they ask is that the bras be in good condition with functional straps and hooks, that you wash them, and if they are new, leave the tags on them. Place the bras in a box or enevelope and mail them with a Bra Recycling Form to 3317 S. Higley Rd, Ste 114-441, Gilbert, AZ 85297.
So check your closets and lingerie draws and see what you have that might be recycled. It's a worthy cause and your donation will be uplifting to someone, I'm sure.
