BRAS for Belize!
I am an archaeologist and have been working in the country of Belize every summer for the past seven years. I work at an important ancient Maya city called Xunantunich. Just across the Mopan River from Xunantunich is the village of San Jose Succotz, or just Succotz for short. Not far down the road is Benque Viejo del Carmen (Benque for short) and the larger town of San Ignacio. Over my summers in Belize, I have become very close with so many amazing Belizean women from these places! My friend Sylvia Batty (a strong Belizean women and up-and-coming Belizean archaeologist) and I want to give back to Belizean women in very personal ways. There is a huge need for adequate women's undergarments in Belize. Donations to BRAsforBelize will impact women's daily lives! Donated funds and gift cards will be used to purchase good quality bras in the US (we are bargain hunters!). Donated bras and those we purchase will be distributed to women living throughout the country of Belize and particularly in rural areas. I will travel to Belize in May to conduct archaeological research and I'll pack every last bra I can into my luggage and any extra bags I can afford!
If you wish to donate bras or gift cards, use the "contact" button at the bottom of the page or go to BRAsforBelize Website to receive information on the shipping address, etc. We really appreciate your support!
Our efforts are inspired by the life of Ms. Vicky Uck, a dear friend to the founders of BRAsforBelize. We celebrate Vicky's life and all the goodness she spread through our mission to support the great women of Belize. We hope to expand our efforts to other areas affecting women in Belize as a legacy for Vicky and how much she meant to us.
THANK YOU for your support! From Leah and Sylvia!
