hmm i saw around here somewhere someone made knitted/ crocheted nighties and other forms of lingere, also someone made purses out of old bra's of their mother who had breast cancer and no longer could use them. Personally i think if you did an auction or craft show it'd be funny to have boob baskets, that had a bunch of boob items in them. and for some reason chocolate covered cherries remind me of boobs heh and the boob pillow was on here! It also depends i guess on who exactly your audience is going to be. you could have items that local group (like red hat's/ or shriners/elk lodge) members might be interested in. i think a boob cake has to be thrown in there somewhere as well. Good luck to your friend! and has she gotten information from the american cancer society?

When my brother turned 16 we made him a "boob cake" you could make semi circle cakes.  They are fun and easy, use nude colored frosting, dar ker for the nipples, and a cherry on top "   Grin  And if you dont want nude ones, you could make bikinis on them   Hope that helps   Kiss

I am so sorry about your friend.  She is so lucky to have you and her other friends around.  I'm sure she'll always appreciate you and your group and all you are doing for her.

I just saw a really cute idea of making a purse out of a french underwire bra..  I believe it was by a craftster named pattiewack. 

This is one of her posts about the bra ( or just type in "my bra purse" in the search screen).

She also has it on her website...

HTH and healthy wishes to your friend.

We could learn a lot from crayons:
some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names.
All are different colors,
but they all have to learn to live in the same box.

Wow. You guys are great friends to do that for her! The best of luck!

I've made a few myself, bra purses! I don't have any pictures of the ones I made, but here's some examples:

I love the bra purse idea!  If you are sure you'd like to do a craft sale for her.... let us know.  I'd love to donate something to the cause!

Those bra purses are VERY eyecatching! I'd bet they would sell beautifully...maybe you could get a Victoria's Secret store (or something equivalent) to donate for the cause!

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

I've made boob cakes for some male friends using stainless steel mixing bowls for the cake form.

A really cool fundraising idea I've heard of is a school selling baskets at a silent auction during a benefit dinner.  Each class had a certain theme (one was barbie for example) and each child brought in one thing for the basket. (so a few barbie dolls ended up in it, some clothes, someone made a babie storage thing, a barbie pillow, etc.)  I don't know if this would be something you could use, but maybe you could have her work put one together, her knitting club do one, each of her good friends make one.

a local breast cancer foundation does something with the decorating bras idea, but they get businesses and people to "sponsor" a bra. basically, you pay $100 or something to get the bra, then you can decorate it, send it in, and they're all on display at a charity night dinner or whatnot.

for charity work like this, i've found that local businesses are super responsive. if you're in the us, try getting in touch with your local chapter of ACS for backing!

best of luck to you and especially your friend.

first of all, my best wishes to your friend.  We do fundraisers every month at work (for people in need at work).. 50/50s go well and so do bake sales.  We also had a soup bar....5.00 a ticket.. and you got homemade soup and bread..What makes these work is that everything is donated.  Last month someone's child passed away.  Everyone at the plant donated bluejeans and I made a blue jean quilt out of the legs.  It raised 450.00....You can also see if you can have local business' donate things like haircuts and carwashes or oil changes.

I know we have a local hospital that will work with you and help pay expenses if you are someone with a lower income.  You might want to see if there is one in your area that will do the same (Ours is St. Mary's)

Finally, cans in gas stations/bars etc seem to go well but make sure you only have one person doing the collecting.  We actually had someone steal the money out of the can that worked at the plant.... EVIL

Finally, just pass a card around work and have people donate their popcans... In a months time we collected and raised 3000.00
