For Thanksgiving, we wanted to share the inspiring, big-hearted story of Gail and Atoiya.Several years ago, when Atoiya (right) was a high school student she came to Amour to be fitted for a new bra. We measured her and found an everyday bra that fit her perfectly. However, she didn't have quite enough money that day to make the purchase. She was going to save up and come back. I took her name and number, put the bra in the back, and said we'd see her soon.
After she left, Gail, who was browsing nearby, inquired, "Did she not have enough money to buy her bra?" I confirmed that we were going to hold the bra while she saved up. Gail asked, "Would it be weird if I bought her bra for her?"
I assured her it would not be weird. In fact, it would be so generous and big-hearted that it made me tear up a little. When I called to let Atoiya know, she was speechless that a stranger had bought her bra for her. When she came to pick it up, she asked to write a thank you note for us to pass on to Gail.
Recently, Atoiya, now a young professional, came back to refresh her bra wardrobe. She asked if we knew of someone who needed a bra who couldn't afford it. Atoiya mentioned the story and the bra Gail had purchased for her years ago. She wanted to pay it forward. This summer, we invited Gail and Atoiya to Amour to meet each other in person. They hit it off.

I was the delivery gal today for 110 bras that are going to be recycled with @thebrarecyclers and 230 bras that were donated to The Community Closet thanks to our August bra drive.
Thank you so so much for supporting this effort with your donations!
Lois and Sandy at the Community Closet were so happy to get the boxes. Their bra bins were looking sparse (as you’ll see in the pictures), and you helped replenish their supply. The Community Closet truly helps some of the most in-need people in our community; it’s entirely volunteer run and they accept no money for the items taken from the closet. The Community Closet has a volunteer who is in charge of the bras, and she sorts them by size and puts easy-to-read tags on them. Sandy said the volunteer was so excited to be getting the delivery from us!
And once again, thank you to everyone who donated! While the bra drive is over you can always drop off bras to donate or recycle. We will take care of the rest! (And thanks to Jeff at the Packaging Store on Ingersoll for taking this goofy photo of me and for always getting your packages where they need to go!)
