Would you support Beemaster Fundraising Teeshirts?

Yes, what took you so long
yes, I think it is a great way to contribute and get something in return
Yes, I'd enjoy wearing the shirt and giving the forum exposure
I really don't care for such things
Let's see what you have first, but generally speaking no!
I may not participate, but I think it is a good idea.
I think this is a commercial enterprise - shame on you.
Bad Beemaster, Bad!!!!
I really hope this happens, it sounds wonderful to me.
Isn't enough I spend all day on the forum, do I need to wear it too - lol.
Seriously, I think it is a wonderful and timely idea!
No doubt, I'd be in it for at least one shirt
I'm hoping for coffee mugs, hat and other collectables too.
How many questions you gonna ask - sheeeesh?

This topic has come up lately in different ways. I've thought of a fundraiser teeshirt offering for a long time, but often the numbers didn't jive (cost per shirt, shipping, handling the product, storage, etc.) but there are more affordable options, leving about $2 to $4 to go toward our forum donation fund.

I'm just curious if the idea of a few designs with sayings, images or both sound interesting? I'd also like any feedback on this - I never have supported a commercial enterprise here and don't allow it, but I think the modest profit line is acceptable and it goes into the kitty for any future endeavours we may have.

You can choose SEVERAL OPTIONS in this poll (not just one but FOUR) so please feel free to check any boxes that apply. Thanks.

I think its a pretty neat idea, I was one of the ones who chose "how many questions are you gonna ask me, sheesh" option. Just joking around.

I looked at the donation button and saw Pay Pal was the way to pay. I do not have a credit card and the wife does not like pay pal, used it for gaming. I have also investigated frauds with PayPal, not Paypal themselves, but people getting their accounts. Is there another option of paying for the shirts or what ever is decided on?

the donations page we have here does go through Paypal - but it is for donations only, there are no teeshirts or anything that can be purchased through it.

If teeshirts or anything is created for fund-raising, then it would be from a printer online who I'm sure takes any type of payment that is common and then they drop ship the shirt (or whatever) directly to you :)

But, is there an alternate way to donate to the forum? I'm comfortable with checks if that is a option you and your wife use, just send me a private message for any details. But remember, this survey is only a fact finding mission of sorts to see if members would support Beemaster Teeshirts. I have no gifts of any kind for any donations to the forum - I'm not Public TV :roll:  :-D Contributions are appriciated, and added to a fund for any future purchases, assisting members who need basic mics for voice chat, the monthly fees associated with Ventrilo Chat, anything used to improve the forums as we expand. Thanks for think about the forums .

I like idea. I do agree w/ Bud1, man sizes please. Personally, I would rather pay a few dollars more for a higher quality shirt than less for an inferior quality shirt.

Please, not just 'man sizes'.  I get so tired of not being able to buy a t-shirt because the smallest size is mens' medium.  I never wear 'oversized' t-shirts the way so many do.  I am small, I need a men's small, I prefer a woman's medium, but I'll take what I can get.  Hubby needs a XXL, so you really do need a full range of sizes!

Don't forget the XXXLT's

With a pocket

and a collar

and pink...my wife hates pink..bbuuuutt..it is in my job discription!
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

I just won't tell her until I get it!  I may get one for her and the kids as well.  My sons may not be as secure in their masculinity :evil: as I have grown to be :-P but they'll learn. 

    In that case I guess I had better get that dog house finished.  (I wonder if I can get a cooler and a suana in there?) :-\

I know this is an OLD thread but--- Did this ever happen? Can we make it happen again? I'm sure some of the other newer members would like one or two as well. Just a suggestion.
Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

i don't even remember this discussion, but i would have purchased a couple.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
