What was initially the spontaneous question of “What can I do with my old bras?” led to the creation of Support the Girls. By chance, Dana’s inquiry led to her thirst of knowledge to learn that bras and feminine hygiene products are rarely donated to those most in need: homeless women and girls.

To date, Support the Girls has donated over 90,000 bras and over 401,000 feminine hygiene products to women across the world. Dana has spearheaded the initiative, and led the charge to the creation of Support the Girls affiliates throughout the United States. The movement has tremendous momentum, and Dana’s efforts have been showcased in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Yahoo News, The Today Show, Kveller, NationSwell, and many more.

Dana knew how to take advantage of a surprising opportunity and turn it into a global social enterprise.

Takeaways and resources from this episode:

Keep an open mind and an open heart for new opportunities that can change your life
Luck comes to those who work hard

You can be an expert in a field that one year ago you knew nothing about
