Ladies, we all know how a good bra can change your day. They can be fairly pricey but they can help you feel great, and give you the confidence boost you need in your day. A good bra is also physically important, especially for your back! Well, ex-Adelaide gal Rebecca Simon is on a mission to transform the lives of the woman of Fiji, where she now lives, and helping her is simple.
Rebecca has created ‘Becc’s Booby-Bus,’ which has helped to change many lives throughout her beautiful Island home in Fiji, yet there are so many more women whom she is yet to reach, and she needs your help.
Bras are very expensive and not a priority in Fiji, when food and a home take priority. With the minimum wage being $2.75 an hour, a bra is at the bottom of that priority. So it may seem strange collecting bras but it’s an item needed particularly if the ladies get a job, and they can help with back pain. As we touched on above it also makes women feel more confident, in particular, young girls.
Rebecca has two pallets of bras which will make an astonishing difference to the women of Fiji. In the process of raising the shipping cost which is estimated at around $3000.
To raise this much needed funds, a fundraiser is happening this weekend at the West Adelaide Football Club with two great bands, The Brian’s and CPR who will be serenading you with some classic rock and soft crooning.
Dress up in your best island theme outfits, there will be a raffle, kindly donated by Adelaide businesses, alongside drinks and food at the bar.
All proceeds will be going to Bras For Fiji, head along to support this great cause. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by clicking here. (If you are unable to attend, you can still make a $10 or $20 donation by clicking on the ticket purchase link.
If you’re able to donate raffle prizes for this event, get in touch with Rebecca by sending her an email here.
