The Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society raised S$5.1 million at its fifth charity show, titled ‘Love All’, yesterday evening. Its target was S$3.8 million. Regional artistes, including well-known Taiwanese rocker Wu Bai and Hong Kong singer Jenny Tseng, belted out hits Linkduring the live three-hour show over MediaCorp’s Channel 8.

Homegrown artistes also chipped in with an array of performances.

Established in 1978, the non-profit voluntary organisation has provided community-based services in social, health, emotional and financial support to the needy.

Last year, the charitable organisation had an annual budget of S$43 million to manage and operate more than 50 charity homes, centres and services, including the Ang Mo Kio-Thye Hua Kwan Hospital. Despite increasing overheads and manpower shortage, the Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society has managed to expand its services.

Recently, it launched three projects, including the Senior Group Homes to help the elderly live independently.

The public can still call donation lines to make their contributions till April 8.

Julie Thomsen and the group from Ray Tebeck Auto Electrics want the bras to cover one of their three cars in Sunday's Demolition Derby at Arunga Park in Alice Springs.

The idea came from Anne Twohig, the wife of long-time Demolition Derby competitor Gene Gilby, after Julie put out a call on Facebook for suggestions.

The bra car's driver and builder, Ray Tebeck, said the result of their social network brainstorming "just came out of nowhere, like all great ideas".

The 1996 EF Ford Falcon Wagon will get a coat of pink paint before being covered from head to foot in bras.

The group is hoping to win the "best dressed" category, with proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Foundation.

Julie is the mother of Junior Sedan driver Jack Thomsen, who recently raised more than $4000 in the World's Greatest Shave.

She recently lost a family member to cancer and said the bra idea was just another way to help a great cause.

If Derby favourite Tebeck wins tonight he will donate the $1000 prize money to the Breast Cancer Foundation.

Petticoat Lane lingerie shop owner Clarice Kimlin is offering women who donate to the cause a 25 per cent discount on their next bra purchase at her Todd Mall shop.

Participating bras can be dropped off at Ray Tebeck Auto Electrics or at Battery City in George Crescent before Sunday morning.

We wouldn't recommend wearing your stilettos as a bra but here's Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden stripped down to her knickers for Fabulous Magazine.

It's okay though it's all in the name of charity. Amanda was snapped nearly naked to launch the magazine's Heels that Heal campaign in association with women's health charity Wellbeing of Women (WoW).

She joins the likes of Kylie Minogue, Cheryl Cole and the Prime Minister's wife Sarah Brown who will all be auctioning shoes on eBay.

People will also be able to bid for a series of exciting experiences including afternoon tea with Rachel Stevens or a shopping trip with Miss Holden.

The auction hopes to raise £500,000 to help young women dealing with chronic gynaecological issues such as PMS endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.

As well as the stars shoes, women can bid for a shopping trip with Amanda Holden or afternoon tea with Rachel Stevens.

Mind you I think plenty of men would get the cash out for that one.

Masks and costumes are usually reserved for the movies or parties. but recently, “superheros” have taken to the streets of the Beijing to donate to the poor.

One superhero is a woman, going by the name of Chinese Redbud Woman (北京紫荆侠), was inspired by a Hong Kong version. She wears revealing tight clothes and a blue mask.

The Sina microblog home of the website dooo.cc talked about the obvious flashiness of the “superhero”:

Why does the Chinese Redbud Woman need to wear revealing clothes when she is doing charitable things?

This kind of self-promotion, can be seen as sex charity. However, compared to charity organizations that are corrupt, it’s not harming anyone.
