Help Us to Help Others

In the wake of the Florida crisis, amongst many other traumatic recent events, I wanted to use this as an opportunity to make this month’s message about helping others. Above all, my hope is that people grow more loving and compassionate, and become more unified and less judgmental towards mankind. My prayers are with the victims and their families, and my heart breaks for all those innocent people who endure unnecessary and tragic acts of violence….not only this past weekend, but yesterday, and every day.

Helping others starts at home, your neighbors, and your own community. You needn’t feel that only global efforts matter, in fact, many people you encounter in your own circle of life can benefit from the most basic of needs. Remember that you can help local churches, homeless communities, and certainly volunteer for many altruistic causes.

One such organization that is especially dear to my heart is Breast Oasis. Founded by John Pedersen, M.D., Breast Oasis is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing underprivileged women with new or gently-used bras. WHY BRAS? Because there are thousands of women in our own community (and across the country) that have a tough time affording even basic essentials, such as bras.

With all the awareness we have with breast surgery and breast size in our cosmetic practice, it’s a “perfect and natural fit” to collect these garments and donate them to Breast Oasis! Therefore, our company chooses to support this cause, as we proudly display two “collection stations” all year long. Just think: If you’re undergoing breast surgery and no longer fit into your old bras…we will gladly take them off your hands! We will get them professionally cleaned and package them nicely, and we’ll even include a personal note for the recipient. With the help of my staff, I then personally will deliver them to the needy across Southern California, such as we did here: Click here: Press Release | Breast Oasis

Want to help? You can support these women and teenagers by simply donating new or used bras. The donation process couldn’t be simpler! Just go through your closet and set aside gently used bras that you haven’t worn in a while. We need all sizes! Simply drop them off at our office (or mail them in) and we will distribute them. We invite you to partner with us, truly make a difference, and help us create an “oasis” for women in need.

Thank you!
