Mardi Bra Party
Be a Mardy Brat
Come to the Sofitel in Beverly Hills on February 17, 2015, from 6 to 8 pm in your bra and bring women’s products!
When looking to donate to the poor, many people turn to their closets and find an immense amount of clothing with which they are willing to part. What most people do not consider are the basic and sensitive needs of those suffering in poverty. The homeless and indigent population have become accustomed to finding food and shelter in various ways; however, an overwhelming amount of women are failing to find feminine sanitary products. Homeless and poor women depend solely on the donation of sanitary hygiene products such as tampons and pads. Personal hygiene products are not covered by the SNAP program (food stamps).
We ask the women attending to be active participants by wearing their bras or bathing suit tops. This seemingly outlandish action will desensitize this important issue for the women in need. There is no admission except your donation, and a cash bar will be available. Checks can be made out to: Rock and Wrap It Up! Donations of feminine hygiene products will also be collected during our Mardi Bras event. All donated items will help those that are in need, in LA. Raising awareness to combat the shortness of these donations will help to increase homeless women’s confidence, dignity, and most importantly, their personal hygiene levels.
