Has anyone ever thought of the idea of using the mytoos logo to sell t shirts to the members? I for one would love one, since I cannot find a shirt I like with a cockatoo on it.

We are in the process of making mytoos merchandise available. All proceeds will go to a rescue. Hopefully the items will be available within a couple weeks. I'll let everyone know when it goes online.

Jerry? Charlie? Michael? check out this link

( T shirts that say "Cockatoos Rock!" )

maybe this shop might be able to give MYTOOS a deal on some of the other T ideas!

I went on ebay to look at them, he has some really nice shirts and sweatshirts also. Very reasonably priced. I don't have a TOO shirt I have the CAG and B&G. I will start saving my pennies so I can get a couple. Jerry are you also thinking of doing the sweatshirts for winter time??

I have mixed emotions about a T shirt that promotes cockatoos. One one hand... who's cockatoo doesnt rock? <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

But like featuring parrots in movies, (and then the sale of parrots goes up overnight) would a T shirt like that send the wrong message to people who will see it... but never approach you about what it means to own one? It's a little troubling to me...

Jerry I can understand compltely where your coming from. I agree there has to be the Logo of My TOOS but also has to be a saying below about rescue. This will be an opening to a conversation with people when they see the shirts. Just a hint at what I mean but I am for sure not a logo writer.

MY TOOS
Proud Owner of a Rescued TOO
etc etc etc etc
Something such as this so people will ask questions. I know anytime I get the opportunity I try to inform people of how many birds are in rescues now waiting to be rehomed due to impulse buying before researching.

Don't pick a cute picture. Choose the plucked bird or the one in the cage on the torture page. I use that one as my main page on my computer and it aways generates a response.

Are you going to allow the plucked TOO also as one of the logos for the T shirts. To be honest I would much prefer a T shirt with that. I know a lot of people didn't care for that one but I really did.

I liked the crying too for the website but I'd like the plucked too on a Tshirt with the saying: Save A Parrot Cage A Breeder along with the Mytoo's logo

Can ya do that Jer? smile

Not to take sales away from mytoos, but while we're waiting for t-shirts, please check out avian welfare coalition website. They sell "Don't breed, don't buy - Adopt" t-shirt with different breeds of birds on them. I have a Senegal version, but need to get a 'too shirt. They are www.avianwelfare.org. Also try the Indonesian Parrot Project. They are working with the Indonesian gov't to release birds, including Moluccans, that had been destined to be smuggled, but were confiscated by the gov't. www.indonesian-parrot-project.org. They also sell MoluccaNuts, which my Abraham (M2) absolutely loves. And they sell nice t-shirts; I have one that says "(cocka)Too rights don't make a wrong" "Parrots give us wings" ... and to continue my sales pitch... Foster Parrots also has merchandise available, I believe. There are many avenues available to proudly display your beliefs on your chest or back, and support worth-while organizations at the same time. Happy shopping!! Carole
