Remember the implosion poster I produced a few weeks ago?
Scroll down a few blogs and you will find it - go on, do it now. Have another look.
And what is Canteen I hear you ask? Canteen is a national support group for teenagers and their siblings with cancer. I have had an interest with this group for many years, especially when I worked in Oncology. The interest continues today.............
I know the Manager of Canteen here in Christchurch - she used to work with me many moons ago in Oncology. We sat over a coffee ~10 days ago and I proposed the notion of selling copies of this implosion poster with a significant percentage of the proceeds going to Canteen, but that I didn't really know where to start or who to approach. The rest is history - she knew just who to talk to and a meeting was held yesterday with the powers at Radio Network NZ (whose building it was that imploded).
The outcome is that a limited edition of 100 framed prints is to be produced, each signed and numbered and these will be promoted via the airwaves, radio websites and Facebook. Some were purchased at the meeting. The radio folks loved it and feel that it will sell quickly, especially amongst the people who used to occupy the old building.
Why am I telling you all this? Two reasons.............
1. To support Canteen (www.canteen.org.nz)
2. To give you an early opportunity to purchase one. It may be your only opportunity!
Contact either me or the Christchurch branch of Canteen, or the Radio Network website when it gets up there (will take a week or so). I'll endeavour to update you with details later.
