How far would you go to raise money and support for breast cancer awareness
? One English man, with perhaps a bit more brass than most, has decided the establish Pink Butlers - a semi-nude cleaning service - to raise money for the cause.
James Bailey, a 23-year-old from Cheam, England, set up the bare butlers charity in August 2009 after a close friend of his was diagnosed with breast cancer in her early 20s, the Sutton Guardian reports.
"My friend, who has now recovered, was very supportive of the idea, and I approached her first before I proceeded any further," Bailey told the news source.
He added, "I have taken the decision to try to build the company and become the best in the county."
The semi-nude butlering service for parties and events donates £20 from every reservation to the charitable organization, Breakthrough Breast Cancer. So far, Bailey and his staff have raised £200 for the organization, and are hoping to bring in at least £2,500 this year.
While breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the U.S., the condition affects more UK residents than any other disease of its kind.
