The Canadian Olympic Foundation is proud to launch the next generation of iconic Canadian Olympic Team Red Mittens. Thanks to the excitement of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, these mittens have become a recognizable and fashionable Canadian wardrobe staple and can be paired with just about anything to show your support of Canada’s athletes.
The 2012 Mittens are available at the Hudson’s Bay Company and for every $10 pair of mittens sold, $3 goes towards supporting Canadian Olympic Team athletes as they prepare for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, kicking off in exactly 302 days!
To encourage Canadians to show their pride and wear their Red Mittens, Canadian athletes will post their own photos of them wearing the newest mittens on their Facebook and Twitter, as well as the Canadian Olympic Team’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/canadianolympicteam. Canadians from coast to coast will also be encouraged to post photos with their Red Mittens, with Twitter hash-tag #RedMittens.
