I was reading (and I posted about this) about bumperstickers in TAO and I thought it would be so cool to have an MDC bumperstickers -- we could have the mothering website on it. It would be useful to meeting other mdc moms around town and to spread the word about mothering. And it would make a great fundraiser!

So, I guess my real question, is, does MDC already have bumperstickers? and if not, can we have one/make one?

I'd pay money for one! And that could help buy a new server, right? (OK, well, it might take selling more than one to afford a new server.)

It was suggested in the other thread that it could be one of those black and white oval stickers and say MDC, with mothering.com underneath in small letters. I love this and would definitely buy one!

Trying to get my bearings...

I think it's a great fundraising idea! I suggested it to CM a while back but she didn't think it was a good idea

I would definitely buy a car magnet!

Cynthia should take it into consideration. It would be an excellent way to raise money to offset the cost of the forums.

I'd absolutely buy one! Heck, I'd buy a t-shirt too!

You know you can make your own on cafepress.com, but I'd love to support the cause instead. Maybe the mods would like to make the design on cafepress and let people buy them there? Its free to do that, and the designer (MDC in this case) gets some forem of good comission off of every one sold. Just an idea that would be much less hassle then having to invest in shirts and bumper stickers. This way there is no output of money for MDC, but their loyal webbies can show their love on the street!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I could always make my own, but I thought MDC might want the profits. Seems like something people are interested in.

I also wouldn't want to be stepping on anyone else's toes by designing it. If noone minds, I would be happy to do it, though. I'm thinking just the simple oval design with MDC and mothering.com on it.

Okay, so if I do this, am I infriging on any copyrights? If I use "MDC: Natural Family Living" or something like that? Do I have to request permission to do this? Mods?

I'm pretty sure that would be infringing on copywrites (trademarks, whatever it is with a logo and name).

I think it would be a great idea though, but something that would (should) need to be done by MDC.

*This post should NOT be construed as the *official* MDC stance... only my personal beliefs on the subject... wait for Cynthia or Ms Mom for an official statement*

Amy,

Yeah, that's kind of what I was afraid of. We'll see what Cynthia/Ms.Mom have to say.

I'm not opposed to the idea. It's just that past efforts (CafePress) did not get many purchases though a lot of time and effort went into the project. So I don't want to place the project into a moderator's hands and can't take it on myself. But it may be different this time since our community has grown and we have more advertising venues to get the word out. So if someone wants to volunteer services and work to create some designs, set things up, oversee the shop, and so on, I'd consider the offer. It would all be an MDC/Mothering project - all profits going to MDC for server expenses.

Interested volunteers can PM me and Ms. Mom.

Count me in...and I bet the MDC community would be so supportive of it. (If anyone is looking for preferences, I'd prefer magnet vs. sticker) Great idea!!

Hmmm. . .Well, I would be glad to try it out, but I am not really familiar with cafepress, or designing anything for that matter, so it would take me some time to figure out how to use it. If anyone else has any experience in this area, please jump in!

I'll see what I can put together in the meantime.

I would definately want all proceeds to go to MDC, of course!
