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 and gently used bras, and individually sealed tampons and maxi pads to women and girls nationally and internationally. Whether they be homeless, refugees, in transitional housing, or fleeing domestic violence, women and girls should never have to compromise on dignity.

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, potentially 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 women.

To date, we have helped more than 320,000 girls and women retain their dignity by collecting 500,000 bras and 2,500,000 menstrual hygiene products and distributing them worldwide to 500 vetted shelters and organizations.

To help women worldwide maintain their dignity, send new/used bras and menstrual products to:
