I have never been deeply philanthropic. I mean, I do really enjoy helping people, teaching...it does emanate from me, but I want to push things a bit deeper. Maybe I am getting older...
So, working with some homies here in the Reepoobleek, I decided to look at doing some fun and interesting things to do what I can to help with kids who wouldn't normally get the chance to mix it up Euro-style...or even go to some of the great 'cross or cycling camps we have around the country hosted by the hard working folks in each region.
So as I formulate this idea, I have a question for you my 'cross brethren and sisteren, would you buy a friggin shirt for 20 bucks? I seriously do not want to make dime numero uno on this but woudl be an UNBELIEVABLE rush to forward cash to a kid or a group (e.g. the Mud skippers) to enable more opportunities for this beautiful sport of ours to grow. The clinics I run to old guys like me are so fun...imagine more time like that spent with like 12 year olds who normally would NEVER get the chance to experience it.
Anyways, I am running with some non-profit ideas like this and am having some fun. I LOVE the NBA logo and had the idea twisted a bit by my boy Ted and his brilliant crew at Anthem. I had them odify this American style sports logo to suit our 'cross needs like you see below for the fund raising t-shirt:
Any uber-geek who can tell me who's silhouette is being used here gets a free shirt...and an award that officially puts you in a higher level of geekdom than me.
So, would ya buy one to support this little idea? Let me know! Vote!
More details later but I dream of putting a little Page on the top step some day. We'll see where this goes....
