Olympic Banners on Sale Now

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The banners that lined the streets and bridges of Vancouver during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games are now up for sale.

A few months ago there was an application process for local non-profits to register so that they could benefit from the sale of these items.

You can now purchase the banners (signed by John Furlong) from the Vancouver 2010 online store with proceeds going to the Fab Shop‘s new Tradeworks Training Society.

About Tradeworks:
“Based in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver BC, Tradeworks Training Society helps foster sustainable independence by providing job-related skills training, counseling, and work opportunities. Tradeworks Training Society has been offering training and employment programs in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver since 1994. Each program is centered in the belief that mutual respect is key to any relationship, and that a hand up is more lasting than a hand out.”

Over 800 pairs of banners have been donated for the fundraising sale. Some items are already out of stock but it looks like there is a quite a selection left starting at $149.

    What a waste of money.

    The Olympics are done and have been for 6 months now. Let’s just forget that whole debacle please.
