#Woolfer Non-Profit Spotlight
Dana Marlowe, I Support the Girls
Can you tell us what I Support The Girls is and how it works, how you support your population?
I Support the Girls is not your average charity that helps the homeless. In fact, our donations reach a unique population of women and girls who have a unique ask: a well-fitting bra and a stress-free period. We provide bras and menstrual products to women and girls in need who are typically homeless and low income, but we’ve recently expanded our reach to those who may be cancer patients, fleeing domestic violence situations, refugees, those in disaster relief shelters, inmates, and more.
Bras are expensive, and many times, our recipients face the choice of spending waning funds on a hot meal or a maxi pad. Women shouldn’t face that choice. We won’t be able to end homelessness, but we can help accommodate a marginalized population. Often, people want to look the other way when they think about poverty or ignore a disaster in an area that isn’t happening to them. We set out to prove that periods don’t just stop when you can’t afford them, and women and girls at any phase in their life deserve the dignity that a properly fitting bra and hygiene products provide.
