Jewel Donates Nursing Bras To Charity For New Moms

June 29, 2011

Singer, actress and expectant mother Jewel partnered with Bravado! Designs today to donate 2,600 nursing bras and tank tops to their long time charity partner Baby Buggy, a non-profit organization that provides families in need across the country with essential equipment, products, clothing, and educational services for their infants and children up to age 12.

The bras and tops will be distributed to new moms served by Baby Buggy’s partner program, Nurse-Family Partnership, in both Dallas and New York City.

Even though she is busy planning for the new addition to her family, Jewel wanted to make a difference in the lives of at-risk mothers in her home state of Texas. By donating these Bravado! bras and tank tops, Jewel will help keep new moms and babies in the Dallas area healthy by providing the tools to make breastfeeding a possibility.

“Thank you to Bravado! Designs for partnering with me to donate over 2,600 nursing bras to mothers in need through the extraordinary work of Baby Buggy,” said Jewel. “This is an un-paralleled opportunity and honor to play such a meaningful role in the lives of other new mothers, and help to assure that all women get the products and care they need for themselves and the next generation. Bravado! Designs and Baby Buggy have given me the tools to make a real difference in the lives of other new mothers. Through this affiliation, I am able to provide quality products and necessary services to support at-risk mothers who struggle to provide the best possible future for their babies.”
