Vancouver 2010 Red Mittens Now Featured on Facebook Marketplace

It’s hard to believe that the 2010 Winter Games are just around the corner. But starting today you can prepare for the impending cold, while showing support for Canadian athletes in their quest for gold in Vancouver by purchasing a pair of Vancouver 2010 Red Mittens, which are being featured on Facebook Marketplace.

The knitted mittens, which retail for $10 a pair, are one of the must-have mementos of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. They match the mittens that will be worn by the 12,000 torchbearers who will carry the flame to more than 1,000 communities during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay, starting in just one month. Net proceeds from every pair sold will complete the funding of the five-year Own the Podium 2010 initiative, which provides Canadian athletes with top equipment and training for the 2010 Games. Any additional funds raised through the Red Mittens campaign will support a variety of athlete- and sport-based initiatives.

The mittens feature a white Maple Leaf in the heart of each palm (perfect for cheering and waving!) and the Olympic Rings and Vancouver 2010 stitched on the outside. They are a unifying element that knit together Olympic torchbearers, Canadian athletes, Canadian fans and Olympic supporters around the world.

Purchase yours today before they sell out.
