Brazieres For A Cure

The Common Threads Quilters Guild of Vestal, NY is sponsoring Brazieres For A Cure, a Breast Cancer Awareness project to support women in New York's Southern Tier. In all, 82 bras were decorated by local quilters and artists throughout the region. The bras are now being displayed in a traveling show at various locations in New York state. At each place the brazieres are displayed, the public can donate $1 to vote for their favorite bra. At the end of the month the bras will be auctioned off with all proceeds being donated to the American Cancer Society and ENCORE Plus, a program that provides uninsured women with free screening for breast and cervical cancer. For more information and a schedule for the traveling exhibit go to the Brazieres For A Cure blogspot.

I had to smile when I saw that melon bra. I think there is a warped sense of humour behind that one. Great! Great cause too.
