Mardi Bras 2019

Mardi Bras is a collaborative fundraiser between Hope House, a program of Volunteers of America, and Transitions' Women's Hearth. Join us on Fat Tuesday, March 5th, as we collect donations of bras, underwear, feminine hygiene products, and bus passes for the most vulnerable women of Spokane.

Meeting the basic needs of the women and children we serve can be the start of a life-changing relationship. Getting access to bras and underwear that fit can be a challenge for women experiencing poverty or homelessness. Women living on the streets get their periods too. Not only do they go through this uncomfortable experience, they struggle just to meet their basic needs. Finding pads and tampons can be almost as impossible as finding bras and underwear.

Join us on Fat Tuesday, March 5, 2019 as we celebrate Mardi Bras! Join us at The Observatory located at 15 S. Howard from 5-8pm. Bring the donations you collected, or just stop by and join the party!

Throw a Party, Make a Difference

This fun and engaging fundraising idea starts with us but comes to life with you! Host a party in your home, invite some friends, and collect bus passes, pads, tampons, underwear, and bras. If you don’t want to host your own party, we’ll be hosting parties around town; check the Spokane Mardi Bra's Facebook page for more information.

You can make a difference

More than 1,800 women are homeless in Spokane each day. Meeting their basic needs is imperative for helping them stabilize. Physiology and biology are facts of life - women shouldn't be punished because of them.
