Bras on boys.....!!

It was 'Purple Bra Day' in Perth yesterday, and no it's not a special once a year day where men of all shapes and sizes can disclose what they really wear under their manly T shirts haha!  It's a yearly event to raise money organized by Breast Cancer Care WA, a fantastic charity which provides practical, emotional and financial support to men and women who have been affected by breast cancer, and because of the generosity of  the WA public, these services are provided free of charge. This year they reached their target of $250,000 made possible by the hard work of volunteers like my two willing subjects above, and their troop following up behind. I take my bra off to them, they did a fantastic job!!

  4. That is interesting, Grace. In the USA, support for breast cancer is indicated by pink ribbons and pink everything else. It is a massive fundraiser. Professional sports team will wear pink as a big part of their uniforms. You haven't seen anything until you have seen a 350 pound lineman wearing a pink uniform.

  11. I knew about the pink in the USA and pinkish things happening in the UK but this country wouldn't even dream of fundraising on a big scale...

  13. Sometimes men should feel some female sensations so we could understand you much better.

  20. Hi,
    It is very wise for women to choose these beautiful dresses. Then they can buy more with the same amount of money. Here you can choose your choice Ball gown at a reasonable price. I like it.
