5 Things You Need To Know About Mike And Tricia’s ‘Bras Across Our Building
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It's also the month that Mike and Tricia Mornings does Bras Across Our Building. It's our lighthearted way of reminding you to get your mammogram or make your appointment for a mammogram. We ask our listeners to donate new or gently used bras that we string across our building, and at the end of the month, we donate all the bras to various women's shelters. If you have new or gently used bras, you can drop them off at 4180 N. Mesa.
Here are some of the things you need to know about Bras Across Our Building:
1. Bras hardly ever get donated - Women's shelters get clothing and bedding donated, but they hardly ever get bras donated. You know that a crummy bra is a crummy feeling. That's why we ask for new or gently used bras to give the women in those shelters a little, um, lift.
2. Only donate bras you would use - I'm really bad about buying a bra, taking it home, hating it, and then never returning it to the store. Or I use a bra for a few months and move on to the next one. Those are bras that we are looking for. If you are embarrassed by the condition of your bra, don't donate it.
3. Every bra will find a home - Last year we donated 700 bras to various women's shelters from our listeners. You guys rock and so do your bras. Help us do that again, please.
4. Every bra is worth a buck - In addition to donating the bras, we will also donate a dollar per bra up to a thousand bras to a local organization that helps provide mammograms to women with no access to them.
Clean out your drawers and get those bras to Mike and Tricia Mornings.
