Help for those affected by natural disasters
I Support the Girls is experienced in mobilizing quickly and distributing products on the ground when a natural disaster hits. Because our affiliate network covers all regions of the U.S., our affiliates can reach out to their local networks in order to solicit and funnel donations to the affected area. For example, our Texas affiliates in Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio were able to immediately distribute tens of thousands of products to Houston and Gulf Coast evacuees housed in city temporary shelters.
Our most important need currently is monetary donations which helps ensure that products are collected, shipped and distributed in Florida and Texas where thousands of evacuees are living at temporary city shelters. Please leave a note when donating to ensure your donation is earmarked for evacuees.
You can mail new bras/sports bras (all sizes), maxipads and tampons to help victims of these hurricanes to:

You can also ship products via our Amazon wishlist.
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.
In the last 12 months, 135,000 bras and 785,000 menstrual hygiene products have been collected and distributed worldwide. To help women worldwide maintain their dignity, send new/used bras and menstrual products to:
