Event Details

 

Join Support1000 for our first ever Bra-La-Palooza, a one day packing-and-shipping event of monuental proportions! In just a few hours you can make a lasting impact on women worldwide. 

Over the course of three years, Support1000 has shipped over 15,000 bras to women around the world. In the course of an afternoon, Support1000 aims to do this and possibly more, shipping 15,000 - 20,000 new and gently used bras to organizations that serve women in the United States and internationally.

 

Ø       Date: August 25th, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Ø       Location: Bodhi Spiritual Center, 2746 N. Magnolia Ave, Chicago, IL 60640

 

Bra-La-Palooza will unite new and returning volunteers with donors and Chicagoland organizations in a collective effort to reach as many women in need as possible in a short period of time. For many woman,  a bra is taken for granted, but for many social services organizations, bras are the hardest and most expensive items to come by for at-risk women., and they can make a significant difference to a woman, whether she is leaving a violent situation with only the clothing on her back or  working to find employment after being homeless. The diversity of the organizations served by Support1000 speak to the importance and urgency of a bra for the woman we serve.

 

Sign up for one shift or all day! This event will welcome several Chicago-land organizations as partners and sponsors. Join us for music, refreshments, and a day of hands-on volunteering that will have an impact for years to come! 


Groups are welcome. Children under 18 are graciously welcome but must be in the presence of an adult chaperone. Please email info@support1000.org with any questions. 


To help us ship 20,000 bras around the world make a donation today!
