The Big Dip 2019 Charities

by Alison Conway February 27, 2019

Last year's event was nothing short of EPIC which is why we are leveling up this year by turning the event into a fundraiser for one local and one global charity both founded here in Reno, Nevada! We wanted to throw a fun event to combat the winter blues last year and couldn't have been more surprised by the turnout for the Strange Bikinis Big Dip 2018.

For The Big Dip this year we decided we wanted to turn the event into something more by donating to a couple incredible charities making a REAL difference in women's lives. Hence the $15 registration fee ;)
So let me introduce you to those charities...
We would first like to introduce you to Zawadisha. Zawadisha's main goal is provide small loans to rural Kenyan women to help finance their livelihoods.
They remove the barriers for rural women to access clean energy and water products by eliminating up-front costs through an in-house financing and distribution program. Zawadisha provides loans for items like solar lamps, rain water tanks, and clean cook stoves, delivers these items directly to rural villages, and provides after-sale services like training in leadership, financial literacy, and micro-enterprise.
We were stoked to partner with Zawadisha because they are not giving the Kenyan women these items, but loaning them and teaching them how they can earn money. A much more effective solution for the long-run!
Our second charity for The Big Dip this year is for an event known as, Women as Change Makers.
This event will take place 9.21.19 at Atlantis Resort & Casino in Reno, Nevada. At the event you can expect networking opportunities with like-minded women, workshops, speakers from pros across sectors, female founder pitch competition, a social good marketplace full of female-founded businesses and much more!
We are keeping it local with Women as Change Makers... This event is an amazing opportunity to listen to and chat with some real badass women shaking things up locally and beyond!
Help us be a part of making change both locally AND globally by taking the jump into freezing Lake Tahoe water in The Big Dip 2019! If you are unable to participate we would still be honored if you could donate a couple dollars to the cause or sponsor a Dipper.

Why We Don't Use Bikini Padding

by Ali Conway January 27, 2021

Bikinis without padding look better. They feel better. They allow you to perform better. And they are better for your health. But most of all, Strange Bikinis promotes this philosophy because it is time to free the nipple – or at least, don't bury it under padding!
