Help Athena's Home Novelties build a bra chain and raise money for breast cancer awareness. The national campaign, called Athena's Cup, aims to collect and hook together 169,000 donated bras, which would break the current bra-chain Guinness world record. Athena's Cup will collect a $5 donation with each bra in an effort to raise half a million dollars. Donors are encouraged to write the names of a loved one or other meaningful inscriptions on the bras prior to sending them in. Gently worn bras will be donated to battered women shelters following the campaign, which will run through October.

Send bras, with a $5 donation, to Athena's Home Novelties, attn: Katherine Newiger, 7541 E. Toronto St., Tucson, AZ 85730. To donate online, visit www.athenascup.org.

For more information, call Newiger at (520) 272-9706.
