Sounds like clarifying the marketing thread here may be a good idea. It is NOT meant to replace any of the other CCSVI outreach efforts. As you have read in other threads, many of us are networking with the doctors we know in our lives, and our North East group is doing phenomenally well with emails to doctors who may not know about CCSVI. We are offering up our medical records and our bodies, pre and post stent, for testing. It is an ongoing, time consuming, serious and exciting effort.
So having t-shirts, or mugs, or scarves (loved that idea, Michelle!) is just a way to reward ourselves, reward people we come in contact with who are interested, and trigger new conversations. It's just a classic, fun promotional thing. Some of us are starting to have meetings with interested doctors and I think it is a good tactic to leave them with something. We are not a pharma company, so they can accept our gift even if such pharma gifts are banned at their medical facility. Also, I think it would be a nice gesture to send a bunch of stuff to Dr. Dake's staff.
So we need a logo, and a slogan that will pique curiosity as well as provide a chuckle to those in the know. Send along your ideas!
