The story behind the campaign
Dare to Give was launched in 2008 and is a major annual bra collection and fundraising campaign in support of the Foundation. It takes place every year in the spring in partnership with la Vie en Rose, Rouge FM and Certex. In 2017, we collected 322,947 bras.
For every bra donated, our partner la Vie en Rose gives $1 to the Foundation, up to a total of $200,000.
When you show your generosity and make an online donation, you are contributing to financing research for women affected by breast cancer (McPeak-Sirois Accès Recherche project).
Where do the bras go?
The donated bras are handed over to Certex, who takes care of sorting them. Certex 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.
