Wear Yellow

Lance Armstrong Foundation launched Yellow Bands with the words LIVE STRONG on them in America. Nike made them (for free) and they are sold all over America for $1. Some premiership footballers and celebrities started wearing them in the UK and they became very popular and sought after... You can read the Observer article here.

Ebay sellers started selling them on for upto £10 each. OK, they original cost of $1 went to the LAF foundation, but the other £9 ??

Shocked at people making profit from what was supposed to be about charity and cancer awareness I order 2 boxes of them from America. I have been selling them on ebay myself for a fixed £3.28. ALL the profit will go to Childrens Brain Tumour Research in the UK. Once the sales have finished I'll post here how much we've raised.

Lottery Syndicates

I've been running the site for a year now. The most popular section is the syndicate reports which show a syndicates winnings, etc, since the National Lottery began over 10 years ago.

The site has always been free but I've just written a system to charge automatically for a years subscription. Its only £3 a year, but most of that (after the processing fees) is going to Children's Brain Tumour Research and Paediatric Neurosurgery Wards in Nottingham.
