RARE AUTOINFLAMMATORY CONDITIONS COMMUNITY - UK (RACC - UK)


Buy an imaginary balloon (or several), enjoy tracking its progress on maps for a week, and support people with rare autoinflammatory conditions. You might even win a prize, too.

The virtual balloon race, supporting a wide range of charities, will "launch" outside Harrods in London at 12 noon on Tuesday 1st December, and you can buy balloons up to half an hour before that time. You can choose the shape, colour(s), and pattern of your balloon, write a name or message on it, and alter the thickness of rubber and amount of helium which affect how it "flies" (different weather patterns at different heights), and then watch its progress. All totally imaginary (except the weather data), no litter or harm to wildlife, no use of the earth's precious helium, just a very entertaining computer programme! Prizes are £500, an iPad, and 10 x £10 book tokens.
