Starting now until the end of October there will be a T-Shirt Contest to revamp the brilliant “Respect Des Fonds” T-Shirt. There will be a email sent out by October 5th with more information about the contest, guidelines, and a image of the current T-shirt to help craft ideas.
Brainstorming of fundraising initiatives were discussed below is a summary of tentative ideas:
