Your Logo Here - on eBay


That is right, we are using eBay to find a major sponsor now! In ten days time we will hopefully have a sponsor! The reserve price is high enough to cover the printing of the postcards including 25% towards Worldwide CF. Pass this eBay item to all your influential benevolent and generous contacts.

Remember the postcard will be distributed to thousands of people along the El Camino who will mail them to friends of family that need inspiration or have friends or relatvies living with Cystic Fibrosis. The money raised from this eBay auction will go towards printing the postcards, other propaganda and small cards in Spanish that explains what we are doing - which helps us to get media attention in Spain.

Let's hope we meet the $1500 reserve price!

Preparing to hike 800+ kilometers in Spain on the El Camino de Santiago can be fun! We did choose a rainy day, and took a very wet and mushy route. It was a good way to test the gear last sunday in a nearby (20 minutes drive) national park.

OK, so I misspelled the title. It is Narawntapu National Park, previously known as the Asbestos Ranges. Lynda, Rebecca and Walter (me) decided to test our gear a little and walked up Archers Knob and walked back around the marshy lake shore riddled with Wombats (the largest burrowing mammal in the world) and Forester Kangaroos (which happens to be the largest kangaroo in Tasmania and the second largest in the world). Pictured below is a wet Pademelon (we have millions of them around).

At the end we barbecued a Chorizo Paella for lunch with a beetroot/tomato salad, which seemed appropriate since we are heading for Spain in September! Thanks Ree for making us great lunch :)

I will try and post more photos on Facebook.  Make sure you like www.facebook.com/coughing4cf
And more importantly, make sure you support us by making a small donation to CF www.give.everydayhero.com/au/coughing4cf or help fund my propaganda machine which funds the making of postcards etc using <PAYPAL>.

Receive a free Postcard?

Yes, there is no such thing as a free lunch! But, if you make a small donation towards the Way of CF to help us print these postcards which we will hand out on the El Camino in September/October, we will mail you one! Organising events such as the Way of CF costs money, and even though this year we are not raising funds to help the team I really need to ask for people to support us printing the shirts and postcards and help raise awareness. We want to receive a lot of press for this trip as well as raise $10,000 for Cystic Fibrosis, but to do that we do need the propaganda machine!

So click DONATE and make a small donations towards helping us pay our infrastructure costs! leave your name and address and we will mail you a postcard anywhere in the world!
