    Is it time to start passing the hat again?

    Boss/GIK:

    Isn't it about the time of the year for donations to help keep this place afloat? Mods, if not a good topic, I understand a delete, but I think we are in that range again and worth noting.

    I'm also guessing there should be some fundraising for
    the "Redszone's 10 Year Anniversary Party" to be held in April?!?!?!

    How about having some Redszone t-shirts, sweatshirts and hats printed up and making them available here on the website? They would serve as both a source of revenue and as advertising.

    There are companies that do this on a per-order basis so you won't have to pay in advance to stock any inventory. They will even ship them out for you.

    That's how my daughter has been selling some of her art at a site called CafePress.com. She adds her profit in and they print the shirts or other items on a per order basis. After she reaches a certain amount in her account, she can withdraw the money (don't know that number).

    I read that as "lingerie"!
    Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.
