Contrary to popular belief,slavery still exists in the world today. With over 27 million slaves fueling a global slave industry worth $32 billion annually, contemporary slavery is one of the largest criminal industries in the world today.
Human trafficking is the trade in humans, most commonly for the purpose of sexual slavery, forced labour or for the extraction of organs or tissues, including surrogacy and ova removal. (Wiki)
Lynda Taumann-Yrisarry has proposed to organize a “Bra collection event”
We will be collecting new and used bras in good condition and 1€ (for shipping costs) per donor on the 26th and at future dates TBA.
Women supporting Women- Sept 27th@ 10.00am in Nürnberg
Women supporting Women-- Oct. 17th@ 7:00pm in Erlangen
Herzogenaurach Coffee morning-Oct 18th @ 10:00 am.
Deadline to have all bras is 20 October 2013.
They will then be shipped to the USA Headquarters for Free the Girls non-profit organization. They will, in turn, distribute the bras to various locations around the world.
The women will then sell them. The point being.... they are independently earning money in a female environment.
