This July marks Where’s Waldo’s 25th birthday and the iconic red and white striped shirt wearing original hipster is celebrating all month all over. Waldo, a guy we’ve always loved for more than just his style, loves the little guy and is celebrating his birthday by celebrating US small businesses, and independent book stores. Yea Waldo!
The Find Waldo Local campaign, sponsored by Candlewick and the American Booksellers Association, has 250 participating booksellers each working with 20 local businesses in their area (to total more than 5,000 small businesses) for a localized scavenger hunt to find Waldo to win prizes.
Here’s more – including a nice shout out to Falmouth Mass and the amazing Eight Cousins bookstore where we’ve bought many a book – http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/childrens/childrens-book-news/article/52813-finding-waldo-on-main-street.html
So how can you celebrate and wish Waldo happy 25? Buying a red and white www.stripedshirt.com T, of course! Happy 25th Waldo!
