The Gift of Lift - Bra Donation Program
–Unique clothing drive benefits women in earthquake damaged Haiti–
Southwest Medical Group Plastic Surgery helps a lot of women reach their desired breast image, and their patients have a lot of bras they can no longer use. From that comes the idea for The Gift of Lift charitable program, which allows for patients and the community to donate their slightly used bras or new bras to a good cause, the women of Haiti.
Every year, plastic surgeon Dr. Allen Gabriel goes to Haiti to provide medical care. In recent years, his work has involved general and major reconstructive surgery for the injured and disabled following the devastating earthquake that hit the region in 2010. This year, he wants to take bras along with his medical supplies.
A simple bra can make a difference in any woman's life and bring smiles to the amazing women of Haiti.
Dr. Gabriel’s goal is 500 bras. If you have slightly used or new bras you would like to donate, please bring them to the SMG Plastic Surgery clinic at 505 NE 87th Ave. Suite 250 (Bldg. A). For more information, visit www.TheGiftofLift.org.
