Under Her: Help us offer essentials

Under Her
We've got her covered.

Under Her is on a mission to support women in personal ways that are often overlooked or not talked about. By providing essentials like bras, underwear, pads and tampons, we aim to give women dignity and lift them up when they need it most.

Sound funny? It’s not. A lot of us have been “her.”

If you’ve ever been a woman seeking a job but didn’t have undergarments that looked right under professional clothes, or you didn’t have enough money to buy sanitary items, then you get it. These items are expensive necessities. Yet they – and the women who can’t afford them – are often overlooked.

How We Help Her

Under Her wants to turn that around by collecting and distributing these essentials to area shelters, pantries and churches. We want these women to know they are important.

The ladies leading this movement understand all too well what can happen to women who are down and out and don’t get a hand up. It’s more than a physical need. It’s a physiological one. Knowing someone cares and receiving these simple items can make all the difference in a women’s life – and her family’s.

Our Story

I’m Shaye Brooks, Founder of Under Her. I’m a divorced mother of four who has struggled with poverty and adversity and has had to seek help with depression, stress and anxiety. Thankfully and with help, I pulled myself and my family together.

I started Under Her because one of my daughter’s girlfriends came to stay with me for six months when her own mother was forced to live out of her car. In Virginia, it’s not illegal to live in your car, but I thought, no one should have to do that. So my daughter’s friend came home one day on the bus with my daughter and never left.

I felt so bad, but with me having my own four kids, it was hard for me to take care of her, too. I called CPS, the school liaison and other community organizations, but I found there was no organization that could supply this poor seventh grade girl with a D cup bra and feminine products on a consistent basis until her mother reached some type of stability.

After seeing this young lady go to school and get picked on, I knew there was something I had to do. The girls and I started having weekly lemonade stands to raise money for my daughter’s friend so I could make sure all the girls had what they needed each month.

I hope you will join us in our campaign to make sure no girl or woman has to go without basics needs and dignity.

How You Can Help Her

Your donation will be used to help us upgrade our website, increase our marketing efforts and coordinate larger collections. We need to raise funds for technical help with our website, advertising money, social media fees...the list goes on, but if we can get this movement to go viral, we have the opportunity to help thousands of girls and women like my daughter's friend.

Please - Help us keep her covered because it’s the right thing to do. And because you could have been her.
