One of the primary reasons that the owners of "Bare Moxie" chose to open their business was to HELP Women!!
Last night, we partnered with the organization "CUPS" to really focus on ALL of the ways we can HELP women in need! Participating in a bra fitting extravaganza at "Hesed House" in Aurora - just a week before Christmas - really was like playing "Santa" for these ladies and young women! We had a large assortment of new & like-new bras that had been collected by the CUPS organization and "Bare Moxie" donated new bra stock for the larger sizes that CUPS had not received. Our joint mission was to make sure that EVERY WOMAN who wanted and needed a new bra received one that fit her extraordinarily well!! What we didn't expect was to MAKE HISTORY!!
This was the VERY FIRST "bra fitting" event in the history of Hesed House and the event was nothing short of amazing! If you doubt for one moment that "A Bra Can Change Your Life..." you should have been there!! After these 26 ladies were fitted by "Bare Moxie" in new bras they got a little spring in their step, a little confidence boost, a BIG smile on their faces AND a lift in body (and spirit)!! ALL OF THIS FROM A BRA!!
Some of the women we saw were just in need of some NEW bras - their old ones were worn out and loose, not providing proper support. BUT most of the women we saw were just trying to make the bra that they had work - and were SEVERAL sizes off in their proper fit. One of the ladies we helped last night had actually "made" a bra out of some leftover materials and it was a "bra" in her mind only - not providing any support or comfort at all. When we fitted her for one of our bras (from "Elila") she was DELIGHTED - absolutely thrilled to have a "real" bra that fit so well. THIS.....THIS....is why we do what we do!
We encourage you to think twice when next cleaning out your lingerie drawer - don't throw away those gently used bras, stop into "Bare Moxie" and donate them to women in need. Such a small act of kindness can make such an incredible difference to these wonderful women!
