SINGAPORE - People at Raffles Place were greeted with an unusual sight when women dressed in bridal gowns were seen carrying signs that read "Are you my match?" and yelling "selling kisses" this afternoon.
Stomp contributor Infoqueen saw a group of women dressed in wedding gowns helping to raise funds for a good cause along Chevron House in Raffles Place on June 26.
The women had been shouting about 'selling kisses', which the Stomp reader later realised was a reference to Hershey Kisses chocolates. She also discovered that they were helping to raise funds for the Bone Marrow Donor Programme.
"I was walking along Chevron House in the CBD area when a few young girls dressed in big pretty wedding gowns caught my attention. They were walking around with some people wearing blue shirts that said, "Match For Life"
"I was seriously judging them because they were shouting, "Selling kisses!" I observed them for awhile, took a brochure from one of those people in the shirts and realised that I've misunderstood what they were doing.
"These girls were helping to raise funds for the Bone Marrow Donor Programme. They said something about finding a donor as a match is as hard as finding your true love.
"And guess what, they were selling Hershey Kisses! Quite a genius idea actually!!! I really liked the whole idea of it."
The Stomp contributor, who described the women as spontaneous, also took a photo of one girl kissing a man on the cheek after he donated money.
"The girls were spontaneous and really sweet. When a guy who donated to the cause really expected a kiss, one of the 'brides' kissed him on the cheek."
