We are collecting football shirts and hope to sew them all together to make the world's biggest football shirt.
On March 24, 2010 the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed that they will recognise our attempt to beat the existing world record for the world's biggest football shirt.
The Shirt 2010 project
Bjorn Heidenstrom set off from Oslo, Norway in the summer of 2009 on a one-man mission to raise increased awareness of the world's refugee crisis. By late April 2010 he had 'hitchbiked' his way through 28 countries, created a media footprint of 80 million and collected several hundred football shirts.
By July 11, 2010 it is estimated that over 1 billion people had become aware of the project through TV, newspapers, radio and the Internet.
The author of this website, Justin Walley, joined Bjorn for the last 6500-kilometre leg from Kenya to South Africa. He also supported 'The Shirt 2010' marketing and media campaign in South Africa between May and July.
Please tell your friends about the project, donate a football shirt, or simply follow our blogs.
