And you can see the way the band will look by just looking at the left hand margin of this blog post.
This is incredible!! Thank you, Jim, for doing that!!!
As we have been reviewing, a significant part of this outreach is the ability to communicate to folks and to have a recognizable presence at the Open and we agreed that the Open Doors wristband was the way to do that. The original idea was to be somewhat unobtrusive, yet, kinda cool looking so that it may draw the interest of folks at the Open. You know, when you attend an event that you want to take away a trinket of some type, you look for something unique and kinda cool and, especially, inexpensive, so that you can remember the event and wear it for awhile to have others ask; "Hey, where'd you get that cool wristband?"
But, the real reason to have the wristband visible is to create a conversation with someone and to inform them of the reason that you have the Open Doors wristband on in the first place; "I am wearing this wristband because it represents the Village Chapel activities that are being conducted during the two Open weeks. You can go on by the Chapel anytime you'd like while you are here to rest and relax, watch a little bit of the Open on the TV, have a water or whatever and, even, get introduced to some new folks. I, personally, am wearing it because, ........... tell your story ..............".
Then the idea is to take the Open Doors wristband off and hand it to the person one is speaking with.
What do you think of that?
Thanks for reading.
