We don’t suppose that bras can change the world — but we do believe the support of a bra gives people the lift they need.

 
 

Lift’s better to give than to receive

People deserve to feel dignity and confidence, and bras can make a small but significant difference toward this for people with breasts.

Lift is a project designed to take donations of new and gently worn bras. We clean and distribute them to shelters and organizations across Toronto.
