Itty Bitty Charity Committee

Fellow Etsian Nicole Castille, owner of Nicole's Visions has engaged the ever important undertaking of promoting breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer and diabetes have all but depleted my family's sage grandams. As a result, I have made it a point to actively support any and all efforts to educate women (and men) of the dangers of breast cancer and, the importance of early detection and prevention by way of regular self examination and mammograms.



Last week, Nicole issued a call for bras-big ones, small ones, bras for grandmas and superstars, she's accepting them all. Her mission, while not carved in stone, is to connect the collected bras and string them across the bridge connecting Wenatchee and East Wenatchee. I'm assuming the Wenatchees are in Washington state, I'm certain my very meager bras shown here aren't going to make the trip, so this is where you come in. Gather your bras; too tight, too big, pilled lace, burgeoning underwires, bleach stained, misshapen, hooks missing, safety pinned, ragged old bras. From the most comfortable to the downright painful, toss them in an envelope and mail them to:

Nicole Castille
Nicole’s Visions
PO Box 1602
Wenatchee, WA 98807-1602

Additionally, 25% of your paid postage fees will be donated to charity! What an awesome opportunity to support a worthy cause as you clean your dresser drawers. For more info and updates, see Nicole's blog. Peace.

Dude, I'd love to help out, but my sorry ass only owns 2 bras!!! And they are in fact raggedy as all get out. One is a nursing bra that I've had since Dorian's birth (yeah, he's 19 months old now) and the other one got stained from when I dyed my hair a few months ago. I'm lame.

Thank you so much for posting this! We need all the help we can get people!! And yes, I am donating 25% of the postage it costs anyone to mail their bras to me, to our local Wellness Place. So if it costs you 1.50 to mail some to me, I'll be donating .38. I'm a sole proprietor so I don't make lots of money, or I'd donate more.

I sent her two yesterday! It felt good to do some cleaning and contribute to a good cause all at once.
