“Citizens Who Care” want your brassieres.
The Guinness World Record for the longest bra chain is currently held by a cancer awareness group in Cypress, who joined together 111km worth of bras.
To create awareness of breast cancer and raise funds for the McGrath Foundation, Citizens Who Care are collecting bras and need 120,000 in order to enter the Guinness World Records. The challenge was reported by ABC Wide Bay Queensland and organiser Rob Bauer said
But, like all world records, the rules are strict. The articles can only be joined by the usual hooks and eyes one expects to find on ladies’ underwear – no staples or other joining aids are permitted.
The McGrath Foundation provides funds to hospitals and health organisations in order to train and employ breast care nurses to help breast cancer patients. Citizens Who Care are supporting the McGrath Foundation and wish to raise $270,000 over three years to train a specialist breast cancer nurse to work in Wide Bay, Queensland.
So time to turn out your drawers, and send your bras to Far North Queensland, Australia. Help Citizens Who Care create awareness of breast cancer and smash the Guinness World Record for the longest bra chain.
