Guys - try ebay as first option

Lance's official website sells packs of 10, 100, and 1,000

OR: Nike town warehouses/shops etc.

I think the money goes towards cancer research. I want one too!

Oh and don't buy them on eBay - apparently you're not helping Lance's charity foundation!!

Isn't it leukimia, specificially, or just cancer research in general? I know that they now have pink ones for breast cancer and orange ones for... I forget what.

Anyway, it's become an annoying fad here. :fiery:

NO ONE GO TO EBAY FOR THEM!!!!

Go to Build a Bear instead. I know that it sounds like an unlikely place to get a Livestrong but that's where I found mine. You actually have to buy a "kit" that comes with the actual LIVESTRONG and a mini version of it for the teddy bear. However, I turned my mini one into a keychain, oh and it costs $2 :)

Yeah it isn't leukaemia, he suffered from cancer, so it is predominantly that. His jersey when cycling is yellow, but even buying them on ebay, Lance's charity still got the $1 for them right? You don't make donations, there is a fixed price wherever you buy them..

The Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) believes that in your battle with cancer, knowledge is power and attitude is everything. Founded in 1997 by cancer survivor and cycling champion Lance Armstrong, the LAF provides the practical information and tools people living with cancer need to live strong. We serve our mission through four core program areas:

Education - The LAF informs cancer patients, health care professionals and the public about the physical, emotional and practical issues that people face in their battle with cancer. We provide the information and resources people need to live strong.

Advocacy - The LAF represents people living with cancer on Capitol Hill. We are increasing awareness, encouraging the government to take action, and addressing the health policy concerns of people battling cancer and their families.

Public Health - The LAF plans, develops and funds programs that provide after-treatment support and services for people living with cancer and their families.

Research - The LAF supports scientific and clinical research that seeks to better understand cancer's physical, emotional and practical effects and the challenge of living with the disease.

Today there are nearly 10 million people living with cancer. Through these four program areas, LAF provides the practical information and tools that people need to battle cancer and live strong.

hmmm I've heard some news articles that say people are buying big packs and selling them on eBay to pocket profits for themselves

I wouldn't even want to have one.. It's not like buying one really helps out the cancer research..

Lance Armstrong supports George W. Bush, who is going to make stem cell research illegal. Stem cell research could lead to bound-breaking changes and cures for cancer patients..

You do the maths.

what does it have to do with math? it has to do with science. please do your homework before speaking about stem cell research again. there has been no evidence compiled that supports that stem cell research on human fetus or emryo is anymore beneficial than stem cell research done on comparable mammals (ie pigs). so bush, using foresight, would not want to jump head first into embryonic stem cell research (which to many people, is human life) without having more basis than we have now. i don't know where you get that GWB is "going to make stem cell research illegal" from, being that it's happening now, it's just not funded as extravagantly as many liberals would want it to be.

That doesn't change the fact that stem cell research could ultimately lead to bound breaking changes for cancer patients. By preventing something from happening, science is limited. And Lance Armstrong should be the one to worry about that, and that is why it is weird that he supports Bush.
