Most women reading this would think that owning a bra is a basic everyday necessity however, the simple truth is that many thousands of women all around the world do not and will never own a bra.
That’s where Uplift steps in, bringing recycled bras to women in need. They are a wonderful Australian run charity, that since 2005, has sent over 750,000 donated new and second hand bras to women all over the world. Bras are sent only where requested, are shipped in biodegradable packaging and always aim to not compete with local businesses.
These bras go to women of all ages in countries such as Fiji, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Philippines, Bali, and some regions of Australia who have all benefited from this wonderful charity. Uplift not only collect, ship and help to distribute the bras to where they are needed most but they also offer an individual fitting service to ensure women are getting the correct sized bra. Often the bra received through Uplift will be the only bra she will own.
Cake Maternity is proud to be associated with Uplift and have donated over 1,000 nursing bras that will be distributed to birthing centers in countries such as Fiji and Nepal to ensure new mothers experience the benefits of a comfortable, well-fitted nursing bra.
