Le Tour de Fleece's shop on Café Press has, to date, raised US$20 from sales of Tour de Fleece 2006 logo items. The proceeds will be donated to the charitable organization Dyana Afghan Women's Fund (please see http://www.dawf.ca for more information about DAWF)
A series of daily postings will be, er, posted by Katherine to allow participants to add comments tracking their progress towards their personal Tour de Fleece goal. Comments for each day's posting will be closed when the next day's posting goes up. If you already have a blog or a photo site where you're documenting your progress, you can put the URL in the comments; if you don't have a blog or pictures, just tell us about your progress.
The Dyana Afghan Women's Fund (www.dawf.ca) is a charitable organization started by Afghan-Canadian writer and journalist Nelofer Pazira to raise funds for a women's centre in Kandahar. To raise money for this worthy cause, Le Tour de Fleece has opened a Café Press shop to sell items with the Tour de Fleece 2006 logo. Please visit the shop at www.cafepress.com/tdf_2006 -- proceeds from purchases will be donated to the Dyana Afghan Women's fund on behalf of Le Tour de Fleece 2006.
More prizes have been added to the list -- Katherine thanks everyone who has so generously donated a prize.
The list of prizes to be awarded by random draw to finishers of Le Tour de Fleece has been updated. More items will be added shortly, after confirming some details.
The deadline for entries has been set as midnight (where ever you are) on Thursday June 29th, 2006.
The Official Tour de Fleece 2006 participant button in now available for downloading in the sidebar, under the heading "Participants".
Please download the button (PC users, right-click on the button and choose "Save Picture/Image as..."; Mac users, well, you'll know what to do...) and then upload the file to your blog or website (i.e. please don't link directly to the button on this site).
The Participants List in the sidebar has been updated to, hopefully, include everyone who's submitted their name (either in the comments of The Participants, or in the comments of the original post in wabisabi, or via e-mail).
