n7 for lupus uk

that's right.

i'm asking you for money.

i've never in my whole life done one of those charity things and asked people to sponsor me...

... until now.

there's a disease called lupus which is pretty close to us whitfields and next month,
well, in just over two weeks time, me and my daughter will be attempting to run a 10k to raise money for the charity lupus uk.

any contribution would be fantastic. every little helps.
however, if you're feeling particularly generous
you could sponsor me and get yourself a rather fetching, limited edition n7 t-shirt.

purple is the colour of lupus. the colour associated with it and used by the various
lupus charities.

so i decided to make an n7 t-shirt using a purple logo
it's a logo i've used previously and it's been very popular so i figured it was the way to go.

then my daughter offered to chip in to make the tshirts a little more special
and she sketched some wolves.

the wolf is the symbol of lupus. it's a long story, regarding wolf-bites.

i then knocked her wolves into shape and added some words underneath
right ?

perhaps because they're wolves they should be howling at the moon
or at an n7 logo ?

but i figured the n7 needs to be the same size it always is, and this would make
the whole design a little too big over the front of the tshirt.

so in the end i opted for this design
this is just a mock-up. the tees haven't been printed yet, but they should be here next week.

so if anybody wants one, they are yours for a pledge of £25

they're 100% cotton, pre-shrunk, white with purple trim.

all you have to do if you want to sponsor a miserable northerner
and his less miserable daughter, as we run 10k together one cold november morning,
is visit the website:

you can also read on the link a little bit about lupus and what it means to our family.

as i said before, any contribution is great.
