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:

How can I help fund your efforts?
Contribute to our Crowdrise campaign to help us grow and provide much needed help to thousands of women and girls across North America.
With your help, we will continue to support our 42 North American affiliates and open new ones, to meet the need of homeless women in as many locations as possible. Our goal is to provide the necessary tools for affiliates to collect and distribute and run independently to assist their local homeless population. Together, we can work to solve this problem!
Since July 2015, I Support the Girls has donated 1,000,000 items to homeless girls and women in teh United States and Thailand, Australia, Pakistan, Canada and Mexico.
Next year, help us donate more than a million!
- Bras: 150,000
