Pampered Passions has partnered with HIOWAA in the UK to assist with National Bag a Bra Day, May 26th each year. Pampered Passions is the drop-off point for gently worn bras from donors which are then shipped over to the UK for delivery to West Africa.

I think that’s nice and all; but there are plenty of women in the United States, the UK, wherever you live, that are in need as well. So, ladies, don’t forget to donate your bras locally. Even if turning them into a local thrift store where millions in need shop every day.
