    instead of putting alllll this time and effort into recruiting more cancer patients why not spend it on PREVENTION?



  2. 2

    The money raised by this fundraiser will be used in some many various ways to help those that have suffered from breast cancer, are currently fighting this disease, and prevent the disease. There are still so many mysteries surrounding breast cancer that we can't fully learn how to prevent the illness until we fully understand the illness. Your $5 donation really can help save someone's mother, sister, wife, child, cousin, grandmother, or best friend from dying from the disease.



  3. 3

    Instead of prevention, where is the cure after all these millions and billions of dollars? No, instead we have cures for male impotenence!:(( And upcoming cures for prostate cancer. Male, not female, problems. And BTW, the leading cause of death in women is heart related…something that *never* gets any decent publicity.

    The money will go to the Susan G. Komen foundation



  6. 6

    Not a bad idea. Susan G. Komen Foundation is a great way to fundraise. I had an aunt that died from this disease.

    Prevention is part of this fundraiser, people!
    Re: rizza – Rizza, you don't have to be affected by cancer to participate in this event. The money is going towards prevention AND research.
    Re: sparkys nemesis – Sparkys Nemesis, I'd encourage you to fundraise for the heart disease foundations - but it doesn't help if you're being negative towards other issues!
    This is a great effort! What else are you planning to do with your old busted bra's anyway?

The bras wont help find a cure, the money will! Please help by surrendering your bras and a mere $5 to this VERY worth while cause..
    Celebrities, are you out there? Please help us reach our goal! You donate MILLIONS every year to other charities, please help us by just giving a small amount (or a large one would be great too! :] ) to the Athena's cup!
    C'MON EVERYONE! SAVE THOSE TAH-TAH'S!!! ;]

    Such a good cause! C'mon Ladies!!! Everyone at some point in their lives is sadly touched by this disease. Lets do all we can to prevent it!!!!



  67. 67

    The Athena's Cup is an awesome opportunity to help mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends that were touched by breast cancer. It is also a great way to raise awareness and prevent more women from being in the dark about breast cancer. Athena's is going to break a world record! Why not help be a part of it! And along with breaking a world record Athena's is going to donate money to the Susan G. Komen foundation! Why would you pass up a great opportunity to help others and be record breaking at the same time.

  86. 86

    Thank you Perez Hilton for featuring the Athena's Cup here! C'mon folks -all you have to do is gather those bras you don't wear and send them to the Athena's Cup with a check for $5. How hard is that?



  87. 87

    I've never had the honor of working for a company that supports such a worth while cause or that has put so much effort into changing lives! Athena's is helping to change lives 1 bra at a time and 1 toy at a time!!!



  91. 91

    I have collected over 100 bras for this cause…….. I am doing my part what are YOU doing?



  92. 92

    It's all about prevention and I personally prefer not to give my dollars to researching a cure when I feel there already is one. HOWEVER……………..if you research the Susan G. Komen Foundation you will see the great things it does such as……….giving four year college scholarships to children who have lost a parent to breast cancer. So, this is a very worthwhile cause that you can be a part of!



  93. 93

    Let's all support a worthy cause that has affected so many of us! Send in your BRAS and $5! Together we can help beat this thing!



  94. 94

    This is so great for everyone or anyone who has a loved one that was lost to the battle or someone that is kicking it's ass. We can do this people come and keep the love coming we can find a cure and will find one with everyone's support.

    Way to go Athena's! I have no doubts that you will EXCEED your goal!!!
    Send in your bras and donation, help fight this awful disease that has touched almost all our lives in some way or another!



  96. 96

    Such as great cause! everyone has older bras that don't fit right! send them in and support the fight for a cure! Thanks to Athena's Home Novelties for caring & help fighting breast cancer.



  97. 97

    Thank you everyone for supporting such a worthwhile cause! I'm so blessed to have you all as fans and supporters!



  98. 98

    This is an AWESOME cause!



  99. 99

    For all of you naysayers, finding a cure for breast cancer isn't all that easy, in case you haven't noticed. So, does that mean other diseases shouldn't be allowed to be researched and cured? Does it mean that surviving breast cancer patients shouldn't be helped and comforted? Does it mean that we should not educate the public at large about what we DO know? OF COURSE NOT! Stop being ridiculous and SEND US YOUR BRAS!
