The need for a nice, well-fitting bra has turned out to be enormous. The volunteers and donors who've supported Support1000 have thereby supported hundreds of women in shelters, high school girls, women entering the workforce, and many others who otherwise couldn't afford a decent bra.
For many of the organizations we have donated to, this was the first time any form of underwear has been available. I thought:
"people move through and move on. There's turnover. New people will be in need of help? What happens if Support1000 doesn't exist?"
I'm committed to Support1000 being available to the organizations we donate to as they experience the turnover of the women they serve.
So, this weekend is about starting the process so that Support1000 has 501c3 status as a non-profit business, and is no longer a one-time project.
Again, thanks to all of the volunteers, people who've donated, those we've donated to, and the countless people who've had inspiring comments.
