    whered u buy it?
     
  10. Exactly, the bracelets are probably half the dollar in cost anyway!

    We had a run round at work, and my dads giving a big Karate seminar this weekend for it, where everyone who comes to see it has to pay £10 a shot.
    My boss donated £200!

    It is the Lance Armstrong foundation, Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon. Nike bought these as part of their support for Lance Armstrong, as far as I know the whole $1.00 goes to charity. :)

    I'm Tired of being asked to give my money away. My president did it for me. 350 million dollars to some half assed third world country who could give two øøøøs about me or my problems. we give money away so freely to other nations yet give LOANS to people who lost their homes in florida and other states affected by the hurricanes. what about the people who lost their homes and loved ones to the mud slides in california? Where was asia or the UN when the twin towers fell in NYC? the only blue i saw was the NYPD and NYFD digging in the rubble. 350 million dollars could go a long way to replacing alot of homes here in the us instead of some øøøøty straw thatched roof and rickshaw half-way around the world. A cashier at pathmark asked me recently if i wanted to donate a dollar to the tsunami relief. My answer was and always will be. Let em swim.
