CASH For YOUR BRAS
“Your old bras could be someone else’s treasure!”
Kuala Lumpur, 4 October 2013 – Did you know that of the ONE MILLION afflicted women with breast cancer, almost 45% of those women live in developing countries? Did you know that early detection and getting appropriate medical attention can help save lives? So it is unfortunate in Malaysia that nearly 40% of the new cases identified each year were already in the very advanced stages of the disease. These are the recent statistics sourced from the National Cancer Registry, hence Neubodi taking this battle to task during this PINK October month with the alliance of Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA) and Free The Girls Association to strengthened, build and create a stronger yet effective awareness within Malaysians especially the younger generation as 64% of these cases were women between the ages of 40 to 60 years old.
In order to create a stronger and an effective awareness about this disease, Neubodi has linked this campaign to one of Malaysian women’s most favoured activity, shopping! What better way to create awareness than in a carefree and light-hearted environment? One is more open to listening and understanding whilst subsequently responding to the cause and take action when they are relaxed! Neubodi collaborated with Free the Girls Association to create Neubodi Bra Bank Drive where we encourage women to donate their old bras for this cause whilst being rebated by Neubodi for supporting this momentous occasion. “Trade in your old bras for new ones at Neubodi and receive 20% off and RM 30 vouchers!”, this is the campaign Neubodi promotes for the PINK month, and for every purchase received, RM 1 will be donated to Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA). Neubodi hopes to collect 10, 000 bras during this two week long campaign and make a significant contribution through the support of their loyal and new customers.
“Neubodi has always pride themselves as the leading Bra Fitting Specialist in Malaysia, hence in conjunction of the PINK month we wanted to make a significant mark and promote a responsive awareness. When you donate one old Bra, you get 5% off one piece of bra you purchase, donate two pieces of old bras, you get a 10% off the two pieces of bra purchase and by donating three pieces and above of old bras, you will receive a 20% off three pieces of bra (or more) along with three rebate cash voucher of RM10. Isn’t this an interesting campaign where we encourage women to clear their lingerie drawers, donate for a good cause and enjoy a relaxing shopping experience. This campaign starts from the 5th – 20th October 2013, so come donate, shop and make a difference is another woman’s life.
— Bra Fitting Specialist & General Manager of Neubodi, Ms Estee Ong.
