This year we are once again teaming up with Free The Girls to support their cause and make our world a better place. Read on to learn about how Free The Girls works to help women and how you can make a difference.
Free The Girls is a non-profit that turns your new or gently used bras into economic opportunity & a path to freedom for human trafficking survivors. It’s easy to help them out! Head to any Aerie store and donate a new or pre-loved bra (any brand, any style) at checkout. For every bra, bralette or sports bra that you donate, we’ll recycle it or donate it with Free The Girls. Plus, if you’re a Real Rewards member, you’ll earn $5 towards your next Aerie bra purchase with your donation.
The women in the Free The Girls program use your bra donations to start their own businesses and sell the bras in their local second-hand clothing markets. In the program, they also receive job skills training, counseling, education reimbursement & more support. Once they graduate, they receive a matching grant for their new home or business as they start a new life on their own.
