Australia - Bra Drop Off Points     [List current at ]

These drop off addresses are for small personal donations ONLY.
If you want to run a collection, please see the "Want to Help?" page.

When dropping off bras at a private address, simply leave them in a bag or box on the doorstep at any time. You do not need to ring the door bell, the family will find the bras.

When dropping off bras at a business address, place your donation in the bin or basket provided during business hours (or as otherwise noted below). You do not need to ring ahead or contact the staff, they will regularly check their donation bin.

Uplift volunteers may collect items from you. If we do, please do not pack more than 10kg/100 bras in a bag, it gets too heavy. Please have items ready for collection near the door so we don't have to come inside. Some of us will have small children in the car.

Donors in Singapore, your bras will be the right sizes for Philippines women. It will be MUCH appreciated if you can post to :

Juvelyn "Juvie" Lagamon-Jomen
GinPRA (Gingoon Poverty Relief Action)
P4 Pandan, Brgy. 25, Gingoog City
9014 Misamis Oriental
Northern Mindanao, Philippines

These ladies need size 30-34 inches or 75-85 cm

 

Post bras direct to our receiving countries

This is the easiest (but most expensive) way of getting bras to the recipients. Per bra it is 10 times the cost of shipping, but it allows us to get small quantities into places we can't ship to.

If you are outside Australia/NZ with a small number of bras to send, it is better to post direct to the receiving country than to Australia. Kashmir/Pakistan require smaller to medium sizes. Philippines require smaller sizes only.

If you do post bras, please send an email to tell us, so we can add to our stats!

Take bras with you when you travel

Are you travelling to one of our recipient countries?

It is often possible to carry in a small quantity (less than 50) bras to give away. Swimwear is also much appreciated in coastal and river areas.

Be aware that carrying a commercial quantity of bras in may attract the attention of Customs. Underwires show on x-ray. In Fiji for example the import duty is about 10 cents per garment, so no great impost on your holiday budget. Often if you make it clear these are a gift, and not for sale you will not be charged.

The easiest way to hand them over is to find a local person or member of resort staff you like, and quietly ask "Would these be helpful for your family?" Be aware that resort staff may be searched before leaving work, and you may have to explain to management that this is in fact a gift. On occasion bras have been left with resort management the donor felt comfortable with to distribute among staff.

Uplift's donations are usually distributed among the more isolated and poorer areas of a country, and often don't get to those fortunate enough to hold jobs in the tourism industry. These women all have the same problems obtaining bras as the rest of the country though.

Bali

Please check out Bras for Bali (Project Jugs UU) Facebook page. They have drop off points in Bali, and your state Uplift Coordinator can provide bras for you to carry in.

The drop off points are:

Please label bags "Bras for Bali" and drop them in whenever the business is open.


 

Sending bras in the UK or the USA

There are organisations in other parts of the world that have objectives similar to Uplift. Sending bras to them will save on both postage and the carbon footprint of transport.
