This October, Professionals Clyde Poulton Real Estate are calling on the Shoalhaven community to get behind Octobra, a bra recycling initiative, which will see bras donated to Uplift Project (upliftbras.org), an organisation supplying new and second hand bras to countries in need.
“For women in developing nations, bras can often be unobtainable or unaffordable. We’re asking for the community to donate their unwanted bras, or even purchase new ones, which will help provide basic amenities to women all over the world,””Professionals Director Mr. Clyde Poulton said.
In addition to collecting bras, Professionals aim to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation via sponsorship of the event. With a target of 1000 bras, they’re asking local businesses to make a monetary pledge should they achieve their goal. All funds raised will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, as part of their annual fundraising.
“As Diamond Partners of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, we’re always looking for ways to help,” Mr. Poulton said. “By combining the two, we’re helping raise awareness and much needed funds, as well as providing support for women across the globe.””
You can help by donating your unwanted bras this October at a number of drop-off points throughout the Shoalhaven, including Professionals Clyde Poulton Real Estate, McDonalds Bomaderry, McDonalds South Nowra, Stanley Johns, Crossfit Shoalhaven, Aquatique Nowra, Shoalhaven Heads Surf Life Saving Club and Assured Locksmiths.
All bras collected will be displayed on Thursday October 24 at a fundraising breakfast at Junction Court mall.
