The Wave Babes have a Pink Scrap Metal Bin at 333 Tenth Street in Nanaimo and the team encourages everyone to drop off their scrap metal for recycling. The scrap metal is sold and profits are directed towards the purchase of breast cancer fighting equipment for women on Central Vancouver Island. There is no fee to drop off scrap metal in the pink bin and items like BBQs and lawn mowers are welcome, even if there may be some wood or plastic included. The project has expanded to include a smaller pink bin for cans and bottles and is located near the Coop Gas Station on Bowen Road. Furthermore, the Wave Babes are also selling dragon-inspired metal art at paddling festivals.
As a result of their fundraising activities the Wave Babes donated $16,300 to the Hospital Foundation. Brenda Rositano, of the Foundation, said “the Wave Babes have been incredibly motivated and their efforts are reflected in their generous donation for breast cancer related equipment. The Foundation is grateful and privileged to partner with such a determined group.”
