Those of you who subscribe to our e-newsletter have already heard the news that we have a great opportunity to work with a wonderful organization called FREE THE GIRLS ! FTG is dedicated to bringing hope and a new future to women who have been exploited through prostitution and sex trafficking. The program provides woman with the chance to make a living selling bras in the lucrative second-hand clothing market. The bras are donated in the United States and sold in countries around the world by these women. FTG has had great success in Africa and you can watch a CNN documentary about their inspirational work by clicking here.
We are excited to test this program out in El Salvador! We have several women already signed up to be in the pilot program and we look forward to getting them started selling the bras in El Salvador. If you are in the Pittsburgh area and want to get involved, you can donate new or gently used bras to be sent to El Salvador for this project. A team from Discovery Christian Church has agreed to bring them when they arrive in two weeks for a missions trip in El Salvador. We have several friends in the Pittsburgh area collecting bras for us, so if you would like to make donation email Danielle at email@example.com and she will point you in the right direction. Thanks for your help and please keep these women in your prayers!
I would like to send bras to the collection site and alert my clients of this wonderful program. I don’t see the address or if you are still taking donations. Thanks. Beth S
