Free the Girls is currently in place in El Salvador and Mozambique.

After receiving an invitation from the Franklin Woman's Club to participate in this initiative, Personally Yours Lingerie, Bedminster and Lace Silhouettes Lingerie, located in Peddlers Village, Lahaska PA, Cape May NJ and Princeton NJ agreed to partner with them, each reaching out to employees and/or customers whose donations were added to the stores’ own contributions of beautiful, brand new merchandise. Julia Klein, Associate Buyer, Foundations & Lingerie, Lace Silhouettes reached out to several of her vendors for their support, asking if the vendors had donations to make in any way they could. Wacoal America Inc., Dana-Co LLC, Simone Perele and Van de Velde N.V. all donated product to support the initiative.

This partnership resulted in a total collection of 585 bras plus a cash donation of $280 to help cover shipping costs. The Franklin Woman’s Club greatly appreciates the generosity of these two businesses in helping them participate in the fight against human trafficking.
