Become a Volunteer
ORGANISE A COLLECTION. It's so easy! All you need to do is put the word out to your friends, family, neighbours, colleagues and you will be absolutely amazed at the used or new bras that you receive. If you work in a large business you might like to take the initiative - businesses are often looking for something charitable to do, or it could be at school or your book club, or sports club - the ideas are endless! Once you have a decent amount, please contact your nearest Regional Co-ordinator for instructions on how to sort them and where to drop them off.

Become a Regional Co-ordinator
Many hands make light work - but there a few pre-requisites for this position!
STORAGE. You need to provide the storage for the many boxes and bags of bras that you are going to receive. Most Coordinators have a separate room or garage space where they can store boxes of bras until they get shipped out.
SORTING - call up some friends as this is a big job but it can be lots of fun. Gather everyone in a large room, divvy up the jobs, have lots of storage boxes (eg banana boxes), and away you go. There's no doubt the banter will be awesome and you can finish off the sorting and packing with a well deserved refreshment! We'll provide you with instructions on the best way to sort & store the bras.
DISTRIBUTION - Regional Coordinators usually send their bras to Auckland if in the North Island or Christchurch if in the South Island and they get sent overseas from there. Some go in containers, some in suitcases with travellers, some in black rubbish bags on yachts! Or you may be going to the islands yourself or know someone who is and can take some. Stay in touch with our NZ Coordinator and she will give you lots of pointers and support.
