Fierce...with Love & Free the Girls
Fierce…with Love offers artfully designed and ethically sourced lingerie for everyday and special occasions.
We empower, embrace and celebrate the creators of the products we offer and the women who will be wearing them.
We want every woman who walks through our doors to believe she is fierce, she can tackle anything she puts her mind to…with love and acceptance for herself and others.
When we started Fierce...with Love it was important to us to offer a caring and supportive environment not just for our customers but for our employees as well. We wanted our products to be ethically sourced, if we wanted our local community to be cared for, we didn’t want anyone throughout the production process to be taken advantage of. As women began coming into our boutique and being fitted in proper fitting bras, we realized we all have drawers full of bras that no longer fit but were still in good condition. We started looking for an agency or group we could partner with. We decided to partner with Free The Girls as their mission and goals most aligned with ours. They are an international 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to coming alongside sex trafficking survivors. They support women from horrific trauma to reintegrating into the life they were meant to live within their family and community. Their goal for true freedom is measured by economic freedom, restored health, social well-being, education, and opportunity for a different, hopeful future.
Free The Girls currently works in three countries: El Salvador, Mozambique, and Costa Rica. They collaborate with partners on-the-ground in these countries to encourage, equip, and empower girls and women to earn a safe income selling bras. Their local partners work closely to provide programming for holistic reintegration.
Your bra donation helps survivors of human trafficking start their own businesses selling bras in their local second-hand clothing markets while they recover and build their new life. A bra is a unique item that actually has the power to bring freedom and hope to survivors. The second-hand clothing market is a thriving industry in many countries around the world. Bras are a sought-after item in the countries they work in, and command top dollar in the marketplace. By receiving a starting inventory from Free The Girls, the women are able to begin their business and become entrepreneurs in their own communities. This income allows them a safe economic opportunity, and for many of the women, provides not only for themselves, but their children as well!
