Richmond's Got the Spirit!

To help Richmond residents show their community spirit, the Richmond Spirit of BC Committee produced car window stickers with the catchy slogan "I've Got the Spirit". Adding the slogan in various languages along the sticker's border made the item more inclusive – a recommendation from one of the committee's Altitude Youth.

"This program allows Richmond residents to tangibly express their spirit. It's very gratifying to see the stickers in car windows as I drive around the city," said Richmond Spirit of BC Chair Ed Gavsie at the launch event in Steveston.

The Richmond Spirit of BC Community Committee produced 10,000 of the "I've Got the Spirit" car window stickers, and distributed more than 4,000 stickers at the Richmond WinterFest Olympic Countdown Event during the 2008 Spirit of BC Week.

In addition, a contest was held to find creative ways of using and displaying the "I've Got Spirit" stickers. Co-sponsored by the Richmond Review newspaper and COUNTERPOINT Communications in conjunction with HBC, the contest winners received plush Olympic mascots.

Spirit of BC is a province-wide program that involves 95 Spirit of BC committees, representing over 200 communities across the province. These committees support local programs and help create opportunities in sport and recreation, arts, literacy, volunteerism, business and tourism. The program is supported by the Province of British Columbia. Visit for more information.
