Hello Friends and Fans!
Did you think by the title that this would be some embarrassing fitting room scenario where Grandma just had to blog the fact that she finally found her true size?
The more accurate answer would be "at an eWomen event at the Sterling Hotel in downtown Sacramento." But what fun is that? Better to dive into two bins of bras, load up on 'em and smile while others stare and snicker. Now that's blogworthy.
And so is the cause behind the bras. It's called, "Bravo" -- Sacramento eWomen's contribution to a program called "Bosom Buddy Bra Recycling" that supplies gently used bras to women in shelters. Locally, the St Francis Women's Shelter and Mary's House will benefit. Turns out lots of clothes are donated, but no upper undies.
If you live in the Sacramento area you can drop off your bras at The Sterling Hotel at 1300 "H" Street or the White Orchid salon at 2118 "P" Street during the month of October. And if you don't have any, you can knock on your neighbor's door and ask if they want to donate their used bras. It's sure to be voted the neighborhood's most original conversation starter.
Keepin' it Grand,
