5th Annual Bras For Hope Event & Bra Drop 2016

These handsome guys...
They're all members of Omega Psi Phi's Eta Delta Delta Chapter at George Mason University!  They generously donated their time and efforts again this year to collect bras and raise awareness about breast cancer on the George Mason campus. 
We are so appreciative of these young men, THANK YOU!

In addition to the bras Omegas collected, our *AMAZING* customers, health partners, their friends & family donated almost 1,100 bras again this year to be recycled or donated to women's shelter's in the area.  THANK YOU!

Special thanks go out to:
Karma Vitality Studio, A Women's Wellness Gym
Fairfax Radiological Consultants, largest private radiology practice in the DC Metro area
Neck, Back, & Beyond, Chiropractic Services & Holistic Wellness Services
Studio BE Pilates, Fairfax's Premier Pilates Studio
for collecting bra donations and spreading the word about our event & bra drop!  
We all specialize in women's wellness & are so happy to have small business support within the community.  THANK YOU!

This year, we were delighted to name INOVA Life With Cancer Foundation as our beneficiary. 
The portion of the day's proceeds that is donated to Life With Cancer will go to helping provide classes, resources, and support for women in our community fighting cancer and those who are on the road to recovery.  We have been fortunate to get to know some of the oncology nurse navigators in the past couple of years, and in turn, some of their patients who have come to Belle Mode for post surgical & mastectomy bra fittings.  We can't tell you how honored we are to be providing this service to women in the Northern Virginia area.

Bras for BRAWS
We were also delighted to be able to take donations for our friends at BRAWS, a local organization that is female owned and operated.  BRAWS collects new bras to provide to our area's homeless shelters for women in need.  They also collect packaged feminine products to provide to the shelters, as these items are not able to be purchased with government assistance, but are a VERY NECESSARY item for every woman.  Please visit their website to find out how you can donate or volunteer.

Each year our event is growing, THANKS TO YOU!
We have no words to express the gratitude we have for the support of our customers & our community so that we can continue to help educate women on breast wellness and provide special fitting services for those in need. 

If you would like to be a part of our 2017 event, there are many ways you can help.
Please contact Belle Mode to find out more.  Planning for next year's event will be underway shortly!
