No, this is not a hoax! :)

The owner of an online Cambridge store, www.breastmates.co.nz , is asking women to send her their old bras so they can be shipped to Zimbabwe, where they can be used by women and girls who cannot afford to buy them.

So far she has collected 4000 bras and is wanting to reach 10,000.

Go check out those underwear drawers and put your old 'over the shoulder boulder holders' to good use! [}:)] Check out www.breastmates.co.nz/africa.html for details of where they can be dropped off or sent to.

Do you think we don't wear them until they don't hold anything any more? Oh, is that just me?

I am pretty much the same, Isla, but this is a good reminder that perhaps its time for some new ones while the old ones still have a bit of life left in them!

Always nice to get new bras and find that your bust line has suddenly magically risen by two inches [}:)][}:)][}:)]

No, but boy, that would make a huge difference to the container being filled! [}:)]

Why? Nutrition? My sister took a J cup for a while. Whoops, I've become a size queen. [}:)] I feel like I'm back in a playground. Contrary to the belief of those young women (in particular) who think their lives will be improved by the addition of several kilogrammes of extra weight to their chests, I find it all rather a pain. It's probably like having curly hair: those who don't, want it; those who have it, try to cut it all off to get it out of the way!

Usually chuck mine out when the bones break.... Still it could be one bit of aid that actually gets through, after all - what would Mugabe do with a container of bras?

I figure this is one container of aid that he can't siphon elsewhere for his own uses :D

It's good to keep an eye out for this sort of thing. A local bike shop was involved in a Bikes for Africa appeal last year where they sent old bikes over and small home businesses there fixed them up and sold them on - microindustry at its best! We got rid of two old ten speeds that were in the back of the shed that someone would be very grateful for [;)]

Is this because Zimbabwean (sp?) women are moving from their traditional dress to Western garb? That would seem a bit sad really :(

there can be some advantages to western clothes... could you imagine pita sharples and Winston peters strutting down the main street in nothing but a flax loincloth?
They're at least in reasonable shape... try the thought of some of the BIG round ones now... :P

what was the name of the labour fellow that must have been well nigh 200Kg?

OT but wasn't there a theory for a while that breast cancer might be given a kick start by the blockage or restraint of the glands surrounded by our bras?

anyone know what the breast cancer rate for women in Zimbabwe is? perhaps we should allow them to continue to hang free.... :)
