Earlier this month, Net Impact was working on a Bra Drive and Fundraiser, in alliance with the nonprofit Free The Girls, the efforts from which help provide rescued sex slaves jobs in Africa. You’d be happy to hear that we raised around $440, and received several bras through our donation boxes placed around campus! A BIG thank you to everyone involved!

Give a Bra, Save a Life

Help combat modern day slavery by donating a bra.

Net Impact is working with nonprofit Free the Girls by hosting a bra drive to provide rescued sex slaves jobs in Africa. Selling the bras allows them to make up to 5x the minimum wage in their community. This money provides them a steady income to prevent them from returning to the sex industry.
