Dear Friend,

Our supporters are some of the most dedicated in the area. And we appreciate the time, treasure and talent you give throughout the year!

I am reaching out to you today to make a critical plea for your support this summer. 

We have several urgent needs that require your support. If you are able, please help with one or all of the following requests:

1. Chillin' on Church Street, Vienna, TOMORROW (7/19), 5-10pm, Water Sales - ALL AGES WELCOME! Sign up for 1, 2, or all shifts! Two volunteers per shift needed. Shifts are only one hour long. 
BRAWS will keep all proceeds!
This is a great opportunity to help us raise money and support our mission! 
Please sign up here if interested!

2. BRAWS is hosting a Summer Silent Auction. This is a no fuss fundraiser- where you can support BRAWS from the comfort of your air-conditioned home. No need to get dressed up! What is better than supporting a great cause, all while wearing your pajamas?!?!

There are TWO really great ways for you to support our Summer Silent Auction. One way is to DONATE AN ITEM with a high value, such as a timeshare, sports/entertainment tickets, signed memorabilia, priceless once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, VIP experiences, etc. etc. If you think you have something that is of value that you would like to contribute, please contact us at

Another way to support our Summer Silent Auction is by BIDDING on an item! Our auction will be live tomorrow and continue through August 5th! Check back often as we will be updating new items daily. Preview items today!

3. Shelter distributions do not stop because it is summer! We are COMPLETELY out or incredibly low on the following items. You can help refill our inventory by purchasing items on our Amazon Wish List or by making a financial donation HERE and we will purchase it for you. You can also drop off bras and underwear at one of our many drop-off locations or at our office at 114 Courthouse Road, SW, Vienna, VA, 22180. Please keep in mind, we only accept NEW, Tags-On items. High priority items:

Girls AND Boys Underwear: ALL SIZES

Women's Underwear: Size 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13 

Bras: Sizes 30B, 30C, 32C, 34B, 34D, 36D, 38B, 38C, 40B, 42C, 42D, Sports bra small, Sports bra large

As always, THANK YOU!  Because of your support, women and girls can live empowered and dignified lives!
