It could be anything from choosing a top to wear for a day out with your family, a night out with the girls, or even what you should do for your big day. This post contains a simple checklist that will help make knowing which bra to wear for what type of outfit a simple choice.

New Charity Connection:Singleton Mom Supporting Single Mom's With Cancer

Picture1The Bra Recyclers is so excited to introduce one of our newest charity connections, Singleton Moms. Kellie Gower, Outreach Coordinator says, "Singleton Moms™ is a community dedicated to lessening the burdens of single parents with cancer and their families. In terms of how bras will help them, Gower states, "Receiving bras will allow our moms to use the money they do have towards their bills and needs for their families. Our parents have so much debt due to medical bills that they never are able to buy clothing or undergarments for themselves."

Please make sure you visit their website to learn about all of the great things the Singleton Moms organization is doing in our community. Also note that The Bra Recyclers does accept new or gently used mastectomy bras and prosthesis. These items help us support orgaizations like Singleton Moms.
