Q&A:

I am doing my part, what about you? :)



Donated gently-used bras for who?
Victims of sex trafficking, enabling their rehabilitation into society as they earn by selling secondhand bras. (Beneficiaries of "Donate" initiative are communities in Malaysia, Cambodia, Nepal, India, and Africa including those in poverty).

What about donated bras NOT suited for donation?
Life Line Clothing will convert raw materials of bras (spandex, nylon, metal wire, plastics) into reusable solid fuel (commonly used to power industrial boilers and generators).

About Life Line Clothing:An international company that is a leader in the recycling industry worldwide led by Barry Wilson (founder). They have a global mission to help communities reuse, renew, and recycling clothing, shoes, toys, and household goods. Thank you Barry fro  Life Line Clothing for making a better planet for us and the next generation.


Fact #1: Breast Cancer is 'gender blind'!!!

Yes, you heard me right!
Males, get more info on this and protect yourself too!

Do not be afraid if people question your masculinity as it is found that 1 out of 1000 men are diagnosed with breast cancer EVERY Year in Malaysia.
More info on this can be found HERE.
