Dana Marlowe Discusses Impact of I Support The Girls on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ [Video]

Dana Marlowe, the founder of Wheaton-based I Support The Girls, recently made an appearance on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show‘ to discuss the nonprofit’s mission of collecting and distributing millions of bras and feminine hygiene products for women in need.

According to The MoCo Show, NBC4 Washington anchor Eun Yang sheds light on how I Support The Girls addresses the gap in homeless services by providing essential products for women through their innovative “vangina.” Fellow NBC4 anchor Molette Green reports live from the nonprofit’s warehouse, where she interviews the Director of Affiliate Outreach and Libby, a woman who received assistance from I Support The Girls when she faced sudden homelessness.

I Support The Girls has received a $10,000 donation from The Kelly Clarkson Show and sponsor Pilot Corporation, along with matching donations from TODAY Show co-anchor Hota Kotb and Grammy award-winning country singer Lainey Wilson’s Heart Like a Truck Fund.

“With I Support the Girls, we’ve been talking non-stop,” Marlowe wrote on the nonprofit’s website. “It is a conversation that has flourished across the United States and now, even globally. Our vast network of volunteers stands up for women by donating the bras and menstrual hygiene products to promote a more healthy and dignified lifestyle. With the tremendous supply of these products and the high demand, it felt right to marry the two. In just over 7 years, I’ve built out an infrastructure with an amazing team of dedicated individuals. I Support the Girls has created a national clearinghouse to encourage affiliates to collect locally and distribute locally in their communities.”
