I'll be sharing about my story and in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness I even searched Pinterest high and low for ways to repurpose, recycle or craft with your "old bras" but found very little. So I am sharing a GREAT idea on what you can do with them and how you can help by sending your gently used bras to My Craft Channel for our BRA DRIVE in October.
