    Default DIYC Fundraiser? (I Guess You'd Call It That)

    I am a supporting member and have been for a few years now. I saw the other post about ads being posted to help generate revenue for the site.

    I currently run 2 Etsy stores where I sell t-shirts and hoodies. I am wondering if anyone on the site would be interested if I started an annual DIYC themed t-shirt/hoodie design? I would take input from members on the design. Take a final vote on the design if multiples are created and then open pre-orders. All profits would be submitted as a donation to the site. Depending on the shirt size, material and price the shirts sell for the profit could be between $2.50 and $8.50 per shirt. This could turn into an annual thing and people could wear their DIYC shirts to the Christmas Expo.

    Just an idea to try and help out the site more and keep it going so that we all can enjoy the knowledge shared. Depending on the replies I may or may not be able to get something in place for this year. Production times through my supplier tend to go up around the holidays.



    If you like the idea and have a design in mind feel free to post a picture or PM me a picture. If enough people are interested I will get some designs made and get a poll going.

    This has been done before for another site, and it worked well. I think it would be a great idea for this one as well.

    You probably want to get Brian (Macrosill)'s blessing on this, particularly if you want to use the forum name and logo. It sounds like a great idea.

    I was bored at work and just randomly posted this thread. Its a mere thought at the moment, but I would make sure it was ok with him before I did anything using the forum name or logo. Maybe the shirts could be something for supporters? Like an annual "Im a supporter" type shirt.

    This forum has helped me a LOT over the last 3 years and I would like to do whatever I can to help keep it going.
