How to say thanks?

"I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder."
                                     - G. K. Chesterton

Chesterton is right again.  I know that most of you don't donate to get a t-shirt, pen or plaque, but I also know that it makes a difference to have these items in use and of uniform appearance.  We will shortly be producing new items to give to those of you who make donations and who achieve honor statuses.

I'd like to receive comments from you regarding items that you would like to see as acknowledgements for your donations.  You can simply leave a comment to this blog.

T-shirt or hat?  Both?  Color?  Logo?

Would you wear a pin?  Bracelet?

Do you like pens?  What kind?

Jackets?  Other apparel? Jewelry?

Would it appeal to you to be taken to dinner with others who had donated to a similar level?

Other ideas?  As an example, Dallas produced belt buckles and 10 gallon hats as awards for donors.  What would be comparable here?  St. Louis Cardinals tickets?

What would you definitely think was cool?  What sorts of things would you not want to see given to yourself or other donors?

Finally, what represents St. Louis to you?  What represents the building project?

The more answers I get, the better... your input is valuable and will lead to getting the fundraising for the St. Louis org done sooner - something that I know we all want.
