Donate Your Old Bras to Help Women and Girls Freed From Slavery

Highlands Ranch Plastic Surgeon Dr. Paul C. Zwiebel Is Hosting a Bra Drive for Free the Girls

HIGHLANDS RANCH, CO--(Marketwired - Jun 21, 2013) - According to the US Department of State, there may be up to 27 million people living in slavery, perhaps more than at any time in history. Up to 80% of them are women and girls. Efforts are underway to free them, but what will they do after they are freed? How will they support themselves and earn enough to secure true independence? Free the Girls is an organization that has an answer and a way for you to help.

Free the Girls collects gently used bras and donates them to halfway houses and shelters that help women transition from slavery to freedom. By selling the bras, women are able to earn 3-5 times the local minimum wage, according to the organization's website, and based on their successful pilot program. This year, they hope to build on the success of their first pilot program and start four new programs.

To help Free the Girls reach its goals, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul C. Zwiebel is hosting a bra drive in concert with the Dry Cleaning Station. Dr. Zwiebel specializes in breast surgery. Women are encouraged to bring gently used bras to Dr. Zwiebel's office in Highlands Ranch to donate them.

According to Dr. Zwiebel, "This is an important cause, and it's a simple way for women to make a real difference in someone's life. It's horrible to think of all these women and girls living in slavery, and it's easy to think that there's nothing we can do. Free the Girls offers a concrete opportunity for women to participate in the process of helping women achieve true freedom by earning a living on their own."

Women can drop their donations at 2050 East County Line Road, Highlands Ranch, Colorado, or call 303-470-3400 or contact The Zwiebel Center for Plastic Surgery for more information.
