Launched in 2008, Osez le donner celebrate it's 10 years! Osez le donner is a major annual fundraising drive for the Foundation’s benefit in collaboration with our three partners la Vie en Rose, Rouge FM and Certex.

For each bra collected, $1 is donated to the Foundation. Last year, a record of 353 719 bras were donated, which helped the Foundation raise $150 000!

WHERE DO BRAS GO?
Bras collected during the Osez le donner operation are handed over to Certex who takes care of the recovery. Certex not only protects the environment by helping to minimize the waste with its sorting centers, but also by giving a second life to clothing. The bras go through a quality sorting process. Depending on its type and condition, it can be sold locally to thrift stores or, if the bra has some small imperfections, it can be sold for export in developing countries. This ensures that more than 100 people with disabilities are employed and occupy positions that are adapted to their real situation.
