24 Feb 2011

I have about 2000 matchstick ready.

They are for my next idea to find the now 117 people I need to still meet, who will trade with me by buying one of my Springleap T-shirts. This idea happens on Monday 28 February.

My fab friends Jolandie and Genevieve will be joining me – together with whoever else wants to join in (contact me if you keen!) – and we will be standing on the busy intersection of Grayston and Rivonia Road in Sandton, Johannesburg. We're going to be there early, and catch the rush hour traffic as people make their way to work.

Amongst the hundreds of people who will pass us, we will be handing out matchsticks, hoping to find at least a couple of dozen more people who will help me. My mom helped create the shoebox full of matchsticks stuck to my web address, and Jolandie and I have been writing hundreds of my "business cards", and I have a few more boxes to still write in time for Monday morning.

It's time now that I finish this T-shirt trade. And I will. I just need to keep finding ways to reach those last 117 people. Can you help me?

Are you one of them?

One Response so far.
