Pretty Hot Pink

On my front verandah I have a succulent which came from a garage sale further down the street. It looks pretty raggedy; I think it had survived on nothing for the last few years. I'm not sure what it is, but it is a red-leaved ground-covering plant. Perhaps a kalanchoe of some variety?

Today I noticed it was looking redder, so went over to take a closer look, and discovered this:
Several attractive deep pink flowers, and lots of buds all over it. Very pretty!
