Hi~ I was wondering if you have ever seen products (such as the Life Is Good products) with a CFS theme? I'm thinking of products such as water bottles, t-shirts, shopping bags....

Anyone ever seen such products? If so, could you provide a link to where they can be found?

I'm thinking of trying to get such products made for fund raising purposes...

Thanks for any help you can give me along these lines....either ideas for fund raising, or links to such products....or even who makes them.

Best, Timaca

There have been some talk about this topic in the past but I don't remember all of them. You might get a lot more responses if you post on Alerts and Advocacy.

One of my friends has a store on Etsy that has both CFS and non-CFS themed items. All the artwork is original and all proceeds go towards activities to raise CFS awareness. Recently, she's starting to work on jewelry more.

MCWPA also has a store up on Zazzle:

Interestingly, the CAA has stamps on Zazzle you can buy that help raise awareness and funds but the butterfly symbol as I know it is associated with the WPI now. Possibly someone could design another ME/CFS stamp?

If I were an artist with some talent, I would consider designing snazzy T-shirts, posting them on Threadless (where people can buy limited edition art T-shirts for $10-$50, vote on their favorite designs), and fundraising that way.

Not from Zazzle and Threadless. I've bought a few items from Etsy without problems.
