It's pretty obvious that some people are visiting Operation Gadget looking for information on the availability of LiveStrong yellow wristbands. The Get It Here link prominently displayed on the Wear Yellow website, sends you to the Lance Armstrong Foundation On-Line Store where the wristbands are available in quantity 10, 100, or 1200. Ordering from the Lance Armstrong Foundation On-Line Store is currently the best option for people who live outside the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
For people in the USA, Canada, and the UK, the fastest way to get a LiveStrong Wristband is to order a 10-pack from the Discovery Channel On-Line Store. Discovery Communications is the new sponsor of Lance Armstrong's professional cycling team, and they have made a major commitment to support the goals of the Lance Armstrong Foundation. I ordered two 10-packs from the Discovery Channel in February 2005, and I received my order in six days. The price of the 10-packs is the same as at the LAF, and the money goes to the same place, so you can't go wrong.
These are the most reliable ways to obtain the wristbands at this time, without resorting to buying on eBay. When you buy LiveStrong wristbands on eBay, you often end up paying significantly more than $1.00 plus reasonable shipping costs. No one can guarantee that the extra money you pay will be donated to the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Therefore, I would urge people who are committed to the goals of the LiveStrong campaign to buy directly from the LAF or the Discovery Channel On-Line Store and give away the extra wristbands that you and your family cannot personally wear.
