The charitable company Kindred launched its #BlokesInBras campaign to raise further public awareness about breast cancer – by urging men all over the world to put on a bra and post the pics on Instagram. The event has received worldwide attention and a positive response from countless people concerned about breast health.

According to the global cancer statistics released by the International Agency Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the deadliest form of cancer for women in 103 countries and territories. By 2019, breast cancer had been estimated to have killed nearly 630,000 people. 

“Cancer does not discriminate, nor do we,” remarks Kindred. With the campaign, the company breaks the conventional sense of only women caring about breast cancer, uniting both men and women in the fight against this disease. Kindred hopes that better consciousness, knowledge and dialogue will emerge in this campaign to help save more lives. 

Here’s how to get involved in this campaign:

  1. Download the app from kindred.co and pick your product to share on your social channels, as the proceeds from this will go to the charity.

  2. If you are a bloke, put on a bra! If you’re not, put your bra on the nearest bloke… and get the perfect shot.

  3. Share your photo on whichever social platform(s) you prefer along with the Kindred link (this is how the charities will get their donation).

  4. Don’t forget to #nominateamate to spread awareness and get the money flowing in the charity’s direction.
