SORTING through my late Mum’s clothing the other day and having a bit of a chuckle about the very expensive and brand new “do up the front” bras I bought for her earlier this year, I was wondering what to do with them. There were some hardly worn other bras, all in perfectly good condition and I thought perhaps I’d phone Capri and ask them if they had a “recycling” programme. I was listening to ABC Radio the next morning when blow me down if a chap from Bundaberg in Queensland wasn’t requesting ladies to send in bras to support a breast cancer project for the McGrath Foundation.
So I got online and read all about it www.citizenswhocare.com.au and that was the answer! The group’s effort to break the record of number of bras strung together in 2009 and their plan to then send them off to PNG, Fiji and so on is admirable, so not only did I send Mum’s off, I cleaned out my old good (and not so darned good) bras as well and sent them all off to:
PO Box 7084
Bundaberg North QLD 4670
Mind you, I did send a covering letter to say they were welcome to get rid of the “not so good” once they’d broken the record! Why not have a clean-out yourself for this good cause – it’s amazing just how many you can stuff in an Australia Post parcel bag. And my Mum would’ve loved the idea!
