Day 127 + 33

BIG DAY
Finally, it’s the BIG DAY for “The Shirt” project. Each year the Norwegian State TV Corporation has a mass auction with all the money raised going to charity. (Think Red Nose Day in the cold!) This year the Norwegian Refugee Council is the nominated charity which is a huge boost for the NRC and also for the project as Bjørn is heavily involved in the event. The number and quality of the lots is truly amazing and you can bid on anything from deluxe beds to luxury holidays, from the hat the Chancellor wore for his budget speech to memorabilia from celebrities and football clubs. As Norway is such a football crazy country, the bids for football items are expected to do well. As for music, the official song for the 2010 TV Auction is “Prisoner of the Road” which was written and sung by Sivert Høyem.

All is set for a huge day for Bjørn Heidenstrøm and the project. Where is he? He is with 300kilos weight of shirts donated to the project at Lerkendal Stadium, Trondheim for the auction. The shirt will again be on display at the pitch and if you have donated a shirt, you are making a piece of history because should RBK take just one point they will take the Norwegian title with two games to spare. Bjørn has always been a talisman for the home side and never on his tour of Norway has an away side even got one point!

So, good luck to Bjørn today and all of us involved in the Shirt project trust that a huge amount of money will be raised. Enjoy!
