Chief Minister Gallagher has announced that not only has the “Like Canberra” promotion given thousands of self promoters the chance to spruik their own interests in this town (not to mention letting gasping up-tweeters get some Canberra100 retweet love for their klout scores) but now you can buy a t-shirt to show your affection, if not love for this city.
ACT Chief Minister Katy Gallagher has announced that eye-catching Like Canberra t-shirts went on sale yesterday at the Canberra and Region Visitors Centre, following the successful launch of the Centenary of Canberra local engagement campaign last month.
“Over the past month Canberrans have been invited to nominate their reasons why they ‘like Canberra’, and they will now have the chance to purchase their own t-shirts to show pride in their city,” the Chief Minister said.
“It is tremendous to see the community getting involved in the Centenary year, with more than 7,000 Canberrans already nominated their reasons why they ‘like Canberra’ since the campaign began a month ago.
“The Canberra and Region Visitors Centre will donate $1 from the sale of each shirt to the Centenary of Canberra Dollars for Dili project,” the Chief Minister concluded.
Dollars for Dili is helping to fund construction of sanitation and health (toilet) blocks in nominated Dili schools and an activity centre for Timor Leste Scouting.
The Chiefly One does love a bit of merch.
