Hi everyone!

I just wanted to strongly encourage all of you who continue to come to this website to make sure you have our *real* website bookmarked... http://thelesterproject.com This blog is no longer updated by any of us, and we wanted to ensure that all of you coming to this site from google or other search engines would be pointed in the correct direction.

And thank you to all of you for helping us to raise over $35,000 dollars for the Jimmy Fund!

We're pleased to announce that we have opened ordering to the general public!

Visit our website http://thelesterproject.com for the official online store. We accept PayPal in the store... to use all other forms of payment (check/money order) please email us via our website (http://thelesterproject.com) and we will give you all the information.

At this time, we are only accepting orders for adult sized Lester Project bracelets. The Youth sized bracelets will be a slightly longer wait. We are also anticipating that it will take 3-4 weeks for us to fulfill all of the orders! We are a 4-woman operation, and we are all college students with our own responsbilities and obligations!

We appreciate all of your support of The Lester Project and look forward to getting the bracelets out!!

We're here with another update on the bracelets and the process! Today we opened up our official bank account through Dana Farber, as we are now an officially recognized fundraiser for the Jimmy Fund! We wanted to go through all of the proper channels to ensure that The Lester Project would go off without a hitch. We also have an update on the bracelets. We are going to receive them in about three weeks (the adult sized bracelets), and should be opening up online ordering on roughly November 6th. We will be sure to post here a few days before we will be ready to put the bracelets up for sale. We really appreciate all of your support, and cannot wait to get the bracelets out to you!

Hey everyone!!!

Thank you so much for the continued support, etc. All of us are really sorry for the delay in bracelet ordering, we're currently STILL working out a lot of important details. We thought a lot of this would be fixed by the end of last week, but alas, nothing has gone according to plan. We promise to keep you guys updated when bracelets become avaiable and continue to check the website (http://thelesterproject.com) and for those of you who haven't joined the mailing list on there, that's also a great way to keep yourself updated!!! We feel awful that you guys have been waiting for a while and we keep saying they're coming, they are coming, but there are a lot of important details that we never thought we would have to deal with before we get these bracelets out and it's taken more time than we realized it would take. However, we realize (and we hope you guys do too!) that it is all for a good cause and if we have to wait a little more to get this rolling, it will totally be worth it in the end.

Please keep spreading the word!! We appreciate all the words of support (and even the words of impatience lol...keeps us on our toes!)

Just a quick update about the bracelets!

They will be sold via our website (http://thelesterproject.com), and you will be able to make payments through paypal. If you do not have a paypal account, you can still pay via credit card. The bracelets are going to be $6 + $2 shipping (we're paying for all of the shipping and etc. costs and they really add up!)

Don't forget to sign up for the mailing list over on the site. Those that are subscribed to the mailing list will get the first notification when the bracelets will be going onsale.

Also, it would be a big help if you could drop an email to bracelets@thelesterproject.com with your name, and how many bracelets you'd like to order (you can also specify Adult or Child sizes). This isn't an official ordering process, but it'll give us an idea of how many more we need to order for the next batch!

Thank you again for all of your support!

Wow, in about a week we've reached 500 friends on myspace! That is CRAZY! Thank you all so much for the support.

We heard that we were mentioned on NESN today, but we all happened to be watching Dancing With The Stars (Mario Lopez is a hottie!) when it happened, but we were certainly told about it many, many times. We're trying catch it on Sox in 2.

Next week, our first batch of bracelets should be in, we'll let you know when everything is set up. We are currently in the process of moving our site&blog (www.thelesterproject.com) to another amazing hosting service, which was offered to us for FREE! We're also trying to all go to a game next Thursday, but it is kind of hard to buy tickets when you have no money on your credit cards! It'll all work out though, hopefully. We're also hoping to do something very special on that day, but we'll tell you more about that once we get it all sorted out.

Hey everyone!

I'm just checking in to let you know what some of the latest updates are with The Lester Project. The four of us honestly cannot believe how big this has gotten since last week! We are presently in contact with The Jimmy Fund, getting a charity account set up. We will soon be setting up an e-mail list to keep track of all interested in wristbands.
Additionally, we are awaiting the arrival of the first batch of bracelets. We were given a window of 5-10 business days, and are just approaching the beginning of that timeframe. As soon as they arrive, we will post here and on the main website (http://thelesterproject.com). Orders will then open!
We are also seeking businesses and individuals that would like to make a donation to help us purchase additional wristbands. As many of you may know, we are four college students, and unfortunately do not have the money to fund a huge project! We honestly do need all of the help we can get. If you are interested, please email us through the website (http://thelesterproject.com).

Thank you again for all of your support, Red Sox Nation! This project has really taken off beyond our wildest dreams, and we look forward to being able to present the Jimmy Fund with a substantial donation in the name of our beloved pitcher, Jon Lester.

Please keep checking this blog and http://thelesterproject.com for the latest updates!
