New Game Plan for "Promotional Box"

Since it would have been too costly for the Legion to put together multiple boxes of merchandise goodies in a single shot, they have decided to do runs of small items, one at a time, throughout the year. So As the items become available, I'll purchase some until our collected funds have run out.

Some proposed items for future runs we could add to our box:

1) Rebel Legion 10th Anniversary pins
2) Remember Alderaan/Rebel Legion rubber bracelets
3) Pens

I'll keep a running tally here of the funds we have donated, and what we have used to make our own promo goodie box Smile

Thanks!

$44.19 - Funds Collected as of 10/13/09
- $13.65 - 50 RL pins
- $30.12 for 150 anniversary pins
- $42.48 for 500 business cards
--------------------
- $42.06 (no funds remaining)

---------------------------------------------

Thanks to the following members who have donated to the promotional goodies!

Trooperdad (Don)
Leia1138 (Tina)
Derek
Nebelwerfer (Tom)
Dbuck (David)


----------------------------------------------

The merchandising team at Rebel Legion is offering these promotional goodie kits ($84.00 total cost) for Base commanders to purchase. Each kit has 50 custom pens, button pins, magnets, and plastic key tags. Our base is actually finished with its big convention for the year (WonderCon), but if enough members wanted to chip in for this kind of a kit I'd consider getting it. I just can't afford to be buying all of this on my own, and I know we all chipped in for a lot of goodies for WonderCon already (plus our recent tattoo run we are awaiting shipment on).

I already purchased large Rebel Legion button pins for table volunteers at WonderCon (most of them were given away), and smaller pins for people who helped at WonderCon back in 2008.

My idea is that if enough base members just wanted to have their own keychain, magnet, button, and pen we could divide up the order between those who contribute so that each of you could have a few of these for your personal use, and the rest would be special hand-outs for future cons to give to whatever VIP guests are at that con? (like, it would have been kind of cool to give Peter and C. Andrew Nelson a keychain and magnet at SuperCon).

Let me know your thoughts. I just didn't want to turn down this order if enough of you wanted to get some of these for your personal collection and use.

PLEASE READ THIS VERY CAREFULLY...THIS SALE IS NOT OPEN TO THE GENERAL REBEL LEGION MEMBERS - ONLY COMMAND STAFF

Deidra(Princess Dee) has posted a Sale on the Base Command boards for Promo boxes containing items that should be given away at conventions and events.
These items ARE NOT for resale.

Each box will have:
50 - RL Logo Buttons (the inexpensive kind, not a good lapel pin)
50 - Translucent Orange click style pens, with rebellegion.com on it
50 - 1-3/4" White Round Magnets, with the RL logo
50 - 1-7/8” Orange Round Key Tags, with the single color RL logo
For a total of 200 pieces.

There is a limit of 45 boxes at this point in time which is explained in the post on the Base Command boards.

Cost:
Each box will be $70 USD.

Shipping:
Each box of 200 items will be shipped in a Large Flat Rate Box.
US addresses = $13.95
Canada and Mexico = $32.95
All other countries = $53.95

Paypal fees:
US addresses - multiply your total by 1.03 then add .30
All other countries - multiply your total by 1.04 then add .30

http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17612

Base Commanders and desginees can go to the boards and order the boxes. You are more than welcome to get a group order together for a quantity of boxes. Commanders might want to get members of their respective bases to chip in for the cost
$86.77 is the total in the US so if 10 persons chipped in it would be $8.68 per person...Obviously if more chipped in, the lower the per person cost.

If you have any questions please contact Princess Dee on the boards
Thanks

Kathy, Barry and I would be glad to put $20.00 towards the purchase of the kit if others are interested. I know that WonderCon has already happened this year but this could help with next years convention.

Hi Bette - OK, we'll wait to see if others want to buy some of these RL logo gift items too. I figure since you are a captain you would take a percentage of the items back to Central Valley to do what you please with (give them to other members like Derek, use them as gifts if you do a hospital visit or something...)

Kathy,

I'd be interested in purchasing some too both for my own collection and as special giveaways.

Thanks for the contribution Don!

OK, with Don's contribution and looking at the show of hands we had of others willing to contribute, I get about $10.70 per person once paypal fees are factored in.

So out of all of you who contribute, I can send you either your percentage of the goodie box for your personal use - or if you choose to only want a couple of pins, buttons etc for yourself and donate the rest as convention hand outs it is your choice. Sound fair?

If any of you want to paypal me it would be the e-mail address in my profile.

Thanks,

Kathy

Got it - thanks Smile

FYI - as of right now the Legion is falling very short on the minimum number of box orders to make this a go. They needed 45 to be ordered... I think they were over estimaging interest personally Sad

So if the group order for the legion box kits does not go through, i'll issue you all a refund. But paypal fees may be subtracted unfortunately Sad

Or maye be we could look into plan B and get our own keytags or something? (we just wouldn't be able to get a little of each thing... I think we's have to pick one single run we could afford with what we collected.)

If this still goes through you can put Jessica and I down for a portion too. Do you want the $$ now or are we waiting?

I have not forgotten about those of you who sent paypal payment to contribute to the promotional goodie box. (I have your payments saved in a specific folder). This is the update on this project, there were not enough bases willing to purchase boxes in order to meet the minimum quantities required for each type of item going in the box. So, throughout the year the Legion Merch Officer has started doing Legion runs of things like pins so that individual members can buy part of the bulk. Then they are saving some off to the side for our Base Boxes. At least, that is how I understand it.

I am going to double check it now, because if we are being expected to just purchase part of the individual runs to make our own 'box' I will just put all the donations we've gotten toward the individual goodie runs, if that makes sense?
