Neubodi's Bra Drive is Back to Bin Your Unwanted Bras

For those who wanted to be part of a charity event, Neubodi, a Malaysian lingerie specialist brand officially launched its month-long Bra Drive campaign ie "DONATE, SUPPORT, RECYCLE" which will run till 5 November 2017 in conjunction with the International Breast Cancer Awareness month.
All you need to do, is to drop-off unwanted or used bras in their "Bra Banks" at any Neubodi stores nationwide and Neubodi will donate gently-used items to victims of sex trafficking to enable them to rehabilitate into the society as they earn a livelihood selling second-hand bras. The beneficiaries of the "DONATE" initiative are communities in Malaysia, Cambodia, Nepal, India and Africa including those in poverty for whom bras are sought-after essential item by providing comfort and self-esteem. Check out the video below on the briefing on how the bra was recycle that I had took on that day...

Bras that are not suited for donation will be collected by their strategic partner, Life Line Clothing and they will use their proprietary technology to convert raw materials of bras such as spandex, nylon, metal wire and plastics into reusable solid fuel commonly used to power industrial boilers and generators. This "RECYCLE" initiative is Malaysia's first kind of activity.
Neubodi and Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia (BCWA) had joint-venture to increase public awareness that breast cancer is 'gender blind'. Means besides female, male will get breast cancer too and it is common in Malaysia. They wanted to promote the importance of self-examine and early detection while raising funds for BCWA's "Hospital Angels" programme. Trained specialists will visit newly diagnosed breast cancer patients and help them learn to cope with the disease in an encouraging and positive environment under this initiative. 
Funds that are raised via Neubodi's "Pedal Forward" cycling convoy that concluded and exclusive sales from its GO PINK collection during their launched on last weekend at 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Ground Floor, Highstreeet Concourse. RM10 from every PINK BRA purchase will also be donated to BCWA.
Ms Anne Tan, Director and Founder of Neubodi Holdings Sdn Bhd said that as a leading lingerie brand in Malaysia, they hope to educate their customers and the public on societal issues through memorable initiatives as part of their "DONATE, SUPPORT, RECYCLE Bra Drive. They will continue to drive the awareness of breast health, breast cancer and importance of early detection and hope to provide a better life for women in n challenging circumstances. They will have long-term partnership with BCWA.
Pioneering women welfare initiatives, Neubodi received KPWKM's CSR Malaysia Award (SME Category) in July 2017 and the Bra Drive is being held for a fifth year and has to-date collected some six tonnes of bras.
