Dear Internet Bullies, Fat Shamers, Concern Trolls,Thumb Thugs.
Everyone has at least one story about being bullied or shamed once in their lifetime. For some of us it happened in grade school. Others in high school.

If you are not in the San Jose are and have some bras you would like to donate, you can mail them to our store or you can mail them directly to Be a Dear’s PO Box info I included here for you. (And, we are accepting all bras… big or small. Pretty or sporty. Gently worn or new.)
I love having a brick and mortar for this very reason! We have a fun spot to create community and do some good. You ladies and gents are always so super generous. I am Continue reading →
