CMZ B.R.A. Drop Box Decorating Contest 2014 Winners

Phase 1 of the CMZ B.R.A. (Bra to Raise Awareness) Campaign Project is the CMZ B.R.A. Drop Box Decorating Contest. 

February 3 marked the Day of Judging for the Best B.R.A. Drop Boxes!

The whole array of beautifully decorated drop boxes were so fabulous. We are sure our judges had a difficult time trying to weigh whether each box had the right balance of creativity and message expressed! 

After careful scrutiny, the judges, City Councilor Hon. Myra Paz Abubakar, Ms. Mila Arieta (Zamboanga Today), Ms. Florence Alcazar (Mindanao Breast Cancer Support and Empowerment Association), Mr. Dante Corteza (Zamboanga Times) and  International artist Mr. Rameer Tawasil chose these winners:


Second Place: WARD E (Medical Ward)
Third Place: Emergency Room

Juror's Choice:



You will come across one or more of these attractive B.R.A.boxes around Zamboanga City this February and March 2014 during the B.R.A. Collection period. 

We hope these B.R.A. boxes do get your attention and entice you to read the messages AND... just maybe...encourages you to be part of this activity as well by dropping your old and used bras for a cause. Again, old and used bras which will not be used as relief goods so don't be shy if these bras may be non-usable.

These are our messages for the Zamboanga City community and to the world:
Bra to Raise Awareness Campaign

Love Your Breasts...
Have them Checked!

Early detection and early treatment save lives!

The awareness starts with us!

By March 20, 2014, watch for the unveiling of the Installation Art for Breast Wellness and Breast Cancer Awareness at the Ciudad Medical Zamboanga and you will find out the reason behind all the effort we have now on bra collection for this noble advocacy. 

We do want you to be part of this Breast Wellness campaign! 


  1. You really went all out with this B.R.A. Campaign. The first prize box art is fun. If only I were there, I would have had my picture taken in that box. :D
