We are unable to take your bras at this time, but we look forward to resuming our donation process for this non-profit. We’ll let you know when we are ready to receive your bra donations again! Learn more about our COVID-19 efforts.


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. For every bra that you donate (any brand or style) in any Aerie store, we’ll recycle it or donate it with Free The Girls.

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.

As of 2020, we’ve donated more than 36,000 bras thanks to YOU & all of your help!

Bra donations from 2019 alone have Aerie on track to donate enough bras (around 200 boxes) to sustain businesses for all 15 women in Free The Girls’ El Salvador program.

In addition to making a difference, your donation also gets you 15% off your next bra at Aerie. Find your closest Aerie store and make a bra donation here.

    I have quite a few bras to donate/recycle, but no Aerie nearby. Why not include American Eagle in this? 🤷‍♀️😔

  2. Erika

    Is this still an active program in March 2020?

    1. Aerie

      Hi Erika! Yes it is. You can donate your bras to Free The Girls in any Aerie store.

  3. Ann

    Hi can we still donate our bras in Aerie stores?

      Yes! You can!

  4. Karel

    Does this include sports bras and bralettes?

  5. Claudette C

    Hi can we still keep donating our bras in 2021? And does it matter if it's not an aerie bra?

    1. Aerie

      While we aren’t currently accepting donations, keep an eye out for updates!

  6. Andrea

    Are you still accepting bra donations?
