    Newest possible investment...

    Just want and opinion of some bbb'ers, I was tossing arround the idea in my head (man there's alot of wide open room in there ) and I was thinking of the charity/cause silicone wristbands. What do yall think of the Blue possibly doing some? It's all going to depend on Price and other such things, but if we could and had no limitations whatsoever, do yall think it would be a good idea? And what are some possible one or two word slogans that could accompany the ingraved "theBlue" on the other side?

    (This has only been discussed between me and... well me. So don't be offended if your in the Blue and havent heard anything about this.)

    Just use the "R U Blue" slogan that looks like it's this years slogan.

    What would the money go towards??

    Paying for the ones we buy! lol. They're pretty expensive... (although I have found what seems to be the best price available) for just being a dumb little rubber thing.. too bad I’m sucked into wearing them. Profit, if we decide to sell them instead of give them away, buying other things for theBlue. Tailgating tent for a student area, more shirts, sponsor some trips to Random Blue members to some away games, attain certain (at this time unmentionable items) to raffle off, invest in new ideas... who knows. Right now the problem is not having large sums of money, I'm totally confident that theBlue will find totally legit ways of using any capitol in accordance with state regulations for a non-profit organization. In short, I don't know, but something useful and legit, if we end up selling them and not giving them away.

    If we sell them they can go towards sponsoring a tigger burn. Giving them out at orientation would have been a good idea but it is a little late for that.

    If you want one now, you can go by the SGA office. They have those blue rubber bracelets that say Louisiana Tech on them along with the T-state logo. They are $3, and the profit goes toward the Memorial Scholarship fund.

    FWIW guys, we (kappa sig) placed a large order for customized livestrong bands for rush last year, and they turned out great. They really work well; I'd recommend looking into it as a viral advertising tool.

    I believe what our friend here is trying to say is, "we're already doing this, please stay off our turf." This would be a great idea, methinks, if it wasn't already being done. Perhaps we can think of another way to make a few $$$?

    Ya'll wouldn't be the only ones that have done it. Softball sold some a year or so ago to raise money. I would try something a litle more unique, no on will know your rubber band says theBlue unless they hold i in their hand.

    While it would be a good idea, I agree with firedog...it's not unique. Not that I have a better suggestion at this present time...but i'll def be thinking about it!
