Tank Top Promotion
Bernard -Though a recent member, I have gotten so much out of this site and think it should be promoted for those with epilepsy and/or their families and the silent sufferers to know they have a place to go. And for the general public to know that we don't have "leprosy". "Yeah, don't worry you can speak with me. You won't catch it". I just bought your blue tank top and this is a big step for me because I've been thinking about "coming out" to try to dispel the stigma. I'm also Bi-Polar and have little fear that people know this about me. It took me awhile and so will be the case with Epilepsy. While it would be a "kick" to wear a Bi-Polar Tee (it's more accepted by the public and invites conversation) an Epilepsy Tee can only be worn by the brave and generous. Always - Laurie :clap:A few weeks ago, some members started discussing ways we might be able to promote the forum and get the word out that this is a really neat place :bjump: (that discussion is only visible to forum members). Sparked by that thread, I created a simple shop on cafepress.com using the forum's logo:
Coping With Epilepsy Shop
I waited to announce the shop until I had a chance to sample some of the merchandise (to make sure the quality was acceptable). I'm happy to say that I was impressed with the samples I ordered. :woot:
In particular, the organic cotton tee, woman's raglan hoodie (in blue) and coffee mugs (both large and regular) were *very* nice.
99% of the cost of the items in the store is cafepress.com's cost. CWE will make a few pennies off the sale of every item (less than a buck) and all proceeds are being used to support the site.
Let me know what you think!
