About Us

A woman shouldn’t have to choose between feeding herself and her personal health. 

I Support the Girls collects and distributes donations of new/used bras and new sealed packages of tampons and maxi pads to homeless women and girls across North America (and in 4 locations worldwide).

Women and girls who find themselves homeless shouldn’t have to worry about finding bras, much less proper menstrual products. Yet they wear the same bra for years (causing health problems) and each month have to make a choice between paying for meals or buying a box of tampons.

Every woman should have the ability to maintain her dignity! This is our mission- to restore dignity and self-respect to thousands of women.

To date, we have helped 180,000 girls and women retain their dignity by collecting 350,000 bras and 1,100,000 menstrual hygiene products and distributing them worldwide to 350 vetted shelters and organizations. To help women worldwide maintain their dignity, send new/used bras and menstrual products to:
