DARE TO GIVE - 11 YEARS

From May 17th to June 6th, 2018

Created in 2008, Dare to Give is a great fundraiser of bras for the benefit of our foundation which takes place every spring with our partners la Vie en Rose, Rouge FM and Certex. In 2017, we collected 322,947 bras.

For each bra, our partner la Vie en Rose donates $1 to the Foundation to a maximum of $200,000.

Through your participation, by making an online or text donation, you help fund research for women who are affected.

Our spokespersons

Jonathan Roberge 

Humorist, Radio animator, Director, actor and author.

 

Marie-Soleil Dion

A multidisciplinary artist who touches all spheres of Quebec culture. Whether in terms of humor, drama or animation, she makes her mark on stage, on television (Like-moi) and on the big screen.

 

Where do the donations go?

The donation of $200,000 from La Vie en Rose allows for partial financing of the Accès-Recherche program. The McPeak-Sirois Group, in partnership with the Foundation, aims to give more Quebeckers affected by breast cancer access to clinical trials in every region of the province via this program. The Accès-Recherche program also allows regional hospitals to establish a research infrastructure that conforms to the highest quality standards, which are essential to clinical trials.

Where do the bras go?

The donated bras are handed over to Certex, who takes care of sorting them. ertex not only protects the environment by helping to minimize landfill waste through its sorting centre activities, but also by giving a second life to clothing. The bras go through a quality sorting process. Certain bras, depending on their type and condition, may be sold to local thrift stores. A bra with minor imperfections may be sold for export to developing countries. In order to give a bra a second life, it should not be cut up or modified. This sorting process ensures that more than 100 people with disabilities have permanent employment and occupy positions adapted to their realities that allow them to thrive.
