The votes are in, and SAGE won the color contest. The first round of shirts will be that color and there will only be 24 available. Actually, make that 23, because I’m certainly getting the first shirt.
For this first round of shirts, I’m asking everyone who wants one to fill out the form on the website. The first 23 people on the list will get to be part of this first order. Once you get your shirt, you’ll be asked to pay either by Venmo, PayPal, or check/cash. Shipping is not going to be available and I’m only allowing one shirt per person. Each of you needs to fill out the form individually, though you can make payments collectively.
Why am I doing it this way? So basically this first order is already paid for. I purchased $300 worth of printing from a media auction. It was hosted by an organization of which I am a member. I always wanted to get shirts made for our group, but I had serious reservations.
I have no idea what I’m doing, in all honesty. I’ve heard enough horror stories about overspending on shirts and ending up with unwanted boxes, which made me seriously hesitant about doing this. When the item came up in the auction, I figured it would be a nice, low risk way of testing the waters. Plus, I want a shirt!
If enough people want more, I’ll do a second small batch order. I’m considering doing them in a different color, but we shall cross that bridge when/if we get to it.
If you really want a shirt, but you want one of the other color options presented, let me know and I will make note of that.
IN OTHER NEWS!
We made our fundraising goal for the Light Up the Night campaign!!!! I set the goal of $400, which will end up purchasing roughly 300-400 lights by the time it’s all said and done.
The first round of lights is set to arrive between December 5-9.
THANK YOU for all of your support and for making that goal happen so quickly! I was hopeful we could order them before the holiday rush, and you all made it possible! I appreciate all of you.
