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.
Our simple, yet powerful promise
We will humbly and efficiently serve people around us
We will advocate for the dignity of all, by providing a bra for every person who needs one
