    Default Bikini Car Wash for a Cause

    A charity bikini car wash we organised to raise money for my brothers expensive neurological cancer surgery. Only in his mid thirty's, he is already fighting his 3rd cancer. His prognosis is less than 10 years due to cancer in his bone marrow. He most likely won't even make it to my age of 45 without this surgery.

    These girls all worked their butts off in 30C heat for over 4hrs for someone they don't even know. We love them all for it!

    - photos taken Sun Sep 8, Lawnton, Brisbane, Qld

    Note: So sorry I haven't been around much lately folks. I've had a lot on recently, including this car wash and other things happening.

    Thanks Marko.

    These girls were fantastic! Up until that day our hottest temp this spring was about 26 c or so ... this day was at least 30c (some say much higher) and hotter on the cement of course. The girls just kept on sponging, hosing and buffing, they were outstanding, as were the other people that helped out in other ways on the day.

    We are a long way off the necessary money yet so we have another 1 or 2 of these planned along with charity dinners, garage sales and other stuff. I've taken on extra shifts at work as well so it's all go, go, go lately. Not much, (pretty much none) time left for ph.ca right now though :(

    They weren't all nude ... some were wearing some lovely garments of blonde, brunette and redhead!

    I think you're wrong MA,,,,doesn't look like they worked their butts off to me.

    Again, best wishes to your brother. Let him know people all over the world are rooting for him.

    Really? People are off doing that for him? What a strange, but cool way to show support. Does this mean I can tell my wife we need to do it more ... for charity

    ROOTING... not rutting!!! I think there was a bit lost in the translation between english and Austrailian. Rooting = cheering on = hoping = applaud = exalt = commend = hail= honor = urging on = giving support to. A good laugh though. Very funny. But go ahead and tell your wife...whatever works.
