I missed this when it blew up yesterday. My fark activity was restricted to the Nationals game thread (which sucked). This is awesome. I wish I had some money to donate, but I bookmarked the indiegogo site, and if I get a job within the next 46 days, I'll be donating to a perk level. If not, well I'll be able to chip in a single buck.

Not so far. It's been posted a few times but they prefer to upvote cat pics.
 
2012-10-13 06:27:43 PM
You should definitely add Kathy Griffin to your tweets list... she's got a huge gay fan-base, is an Obama supporter and has a tv show...

Also, for the t-shirts, it would be extra, ginormously awesome if you could get Joe to pose washing the car on the WH lawn to put on the t-shirts...

2012-10-13 06:27:59 PM

RichieLaw: Also, do we have consensus on offering a shirt as an award at $30?


I like the idea. I think that there is more potential for lulz than just a white T with the pic on the front and a couple words on the back. Maybe a p-shop contest to cover the front, and a caption contest for the back? Or maybe just a couple of days to get a better design?

Also may I suggest that in addition to the T, that the hooded sweatshirt also be an option. Choices choices choices.

Another alternative back could mention

Fark.com
Give Joe the Bird
the twitter accounts
the names of the charities that benefitted
and other phrases for extra lulz. 

"It's a BFD!" is fine by me, I'm just offering suggestions.

Taking ideas for a follow up movie or documentary as per earlier mention.

http://www.uberprints.com/catalog/ (pops)

http://www.customink.com/categories/ (pops)
http://www.customink.com/custom/custom-shirts.htm (pops - same place)

two places with more than just Ts.

Google search for "Instant print shirts free shipping"

Some places don't have a minimum order; I would expect that we can ignore that and look for other, better options (like a lower price per shirt, or another consideration) and just order the minimum ahead of time; we can pre-order 6 or 10 shirts here on fark, and then make more available in indiegogo.

Yes? does this seem reasonable?

Anyway from the couple seconds of searching I did two hours ago it looks like there are a lot of options. There was one site that had about 30 types of shirt style, I can't find it.

Awesome. You're officially in charge of t-shirt and sweatshirt design. :) If you can't take this on, I'll do it, no worries.

I think it does seem reasonable and if we over the shirts for 30 and the sweatshirts for 50-60 depending on cost, we can still make some good gains.

There's no PayPal because they're assholes when it comes to a large influx of money and will freeze an account for days/weeks. Also, you don't need a Facebook to donate. Not sure how I can help you with the home address thing, but if you're using your credit card to donate you would have to put it in anyways.
