If you've got a drawer full of bras that you no longer wear, consider donating them to a worthwhile charity. If you're not sure which charity, Osteopathy Connections in Frankston will take them off your hands.
Brassieres! Do you find your bra size differs from what it used to be, pre-baby? Perhaps you no longer require your breastfeeding bras anymore?
Osteopathy Connections in Frankston wants your secondhand bras this winter, to donate to the Uplift Project.
Osteopathy Connections collecting bras for Uplift Project
Crazy Climb is the most exciting new indoor rock climbing facility in Melbourne!
The Uplift Project is an initiative that collects new and secondhand bras for disadvantaged women around the world. Since 2005, more than one million bras have been sent to regions in 11 Asia Pacific countries, where new bras are prohibitively expensive and secondhand bras are seldom available.
Gather up your unwanted bras, and drop them into Osteopathy Connections in Frankston on Sunday 31 July. Not only will you help a worthwhile cause, but you also have the opportunity to enjoy learn more about health and wellness by listening to information sessions by local experts at the centre.
Dr Lauren Boundy,Osteopath of Osteopathy Connections in Frankston, is hosting the bra and health drive to collect the bras, while connecting local breastfeeding mothers, and women from their mid 20’s into their 80’s who juggle active and busy lives, with local experts in women’s health and wellbeing.
The bra and health drive will feature several uplifting activities, from FREE osteopathic assessments, bra fitting sessions, eco-beauty tips and samples, as well as some delicious and healthy food.
Molena Learning is a new interactive stimulating structured playgroup for Melbourne mums.
“By digging out those old bras that no longer fit, new ones we’ve never got around to wearing, or even those maternity bras we don’t need anymore, we can provide an underprivileged woman or girl with perhaps the only bra she’ll ever own,” said Lauren.
The bra drive happens to coincide with the start of
World Breastfeeding Week (1 – 7 August), which promotes breastfeeding as a way of greatly improving the health and development of infants and improved health and wellbeing of mothers.
Internationally accredited Breastfeeding Counsellor, Janette Timmermans (IBCLC) will be at the event, offering advice to breastfeeding women, answering any questions and providing guidance for those who are struggling.
At their two-day celebration on 20th - 21st January, you can enjoy the best of Yarra Valley food and drink, while at the same time taking in impressive views of the Melbourne skyline and riverfront views.
