London Olympic Games Countdown!
There is one very easy way you can support Team USA right now. Buy a stitch at Raise Our Flag! A stitch in an American Flag. It only costs $12!!! That is 2 Starbucks coffees.
Did you know that Team USA is one of the countries where the Olympians receive no government funding and rely on the support of people like you and me?
What does a stitch buy?
4 Stitches provide a month of prepared meals for one athlete.
15 stitches supply one athlete with a months worth of groceries. Although after seeing the clip on how much Michael Phelps eats while he is training, I’m pretty sure he requires 60 stitches a month.
20 stitches equal one pair of boxing gloves.
125 stitches provide starting blocks for the USA swimming team.
So far California is leading in the number of stitches bought.
2. New York
9. New Jersey
10. Georgia (During the time I bought we fell from 8th to 10th place)
I bought two stitches which is about how often I get Starbucks in a month right now. I dedicated the stitches to my family. It is fun to see Baby Bug’s name on the wall of donors. I hope one day she can be an Olympian and I can show her how we have supported Team USA her whole life.
Our country is huge and only 6, 328 stitches had been bought at the time I wrote this post. We can do better!
