If we wanted to help get the brain juices flowing for them and future acceptors of Bitcoin. One sure fire way would be to send a gift bag of coffee, or other things purchased with Bitcoins and of course note on the card that they were purchased directly with Bitcoins. A good gesture and a passive suggestion that may just get their attention some more.

  Cheers

  haha, I got weird covered. ;p

  Also, got a new PSU in one of my systems so am back in operation.

I am sending 1 BTC here to go towards a coffee gift basket for the folks at Archive.org  address sponsored by Edd at Bitbrew.  It's all I have available atm so feel free to chip in a few bitcents if anyone feels so inclined.

Hmmm, this might also be a good way to intrigue charities when approaching on behalf of the Bitcoin 100; I'd be willing to donate a bag of coffee to send with a simple letter reiterating what bitcoin is and how quickly its economy is growing.

Is it safe to assume that a tad more is needed here or has this been shelved? Only curious! I'm not worry, one iota, about my tiny donation, but if still on the table, this sure would make as nice Christmas present to their office staff, albeit it may now arrive late.

I'm willing to make up the difference for a bag of coffee or two. However, I was hoping to be able to send some Jamaican Blue Mountain or a Cup of Excellence coffee but that would require at least 2 more BTC.

Alternatively, I could send a bag of the good stuff and not include any decaf or tea.

Suggestions?

Still around.

  No worries. I will gladly send another BTC. Anyone else? This is just a small 'Thank You' fund for the Internet Archive folks.

  Rock on, m8.  You sent the 2BTC I take it?  Edd, just let me know if you need any more I will send 1 or 2 if needed.

Okay, enough has been contributed to cover most of the cost for a bag of premium coffee as well as some decaf. As I mentioned, I'll cover the difference and throw in some tea.

It will probably be Thursday before I can get this shipped out so it will not arrive before Christmas, especially if their offices close early.

If anyone wants me to send more coffee than what I've listed above, send you're BTC to the address designated for this "Thank You" package before Thursday and I'll include another variety or two.

Still around.

  A few Bitcoin coffee mugs would be a nice addition. Any chance you have some of those or are able to acquire them? I will toss a few more BTC for other items if needed.

  Edit; If we know of any less than friggin $15 per mug. ;p

I don't have any on hand and would have to order them online, extending the amount of time before I could ship out the final package. As it's already going to be arriving after Christmas, a few more days probably won't make a big difference.

Now that I think about it, I could call some local t-shirt/mug shops and see what kind of product they can produce and how quickly they can do it. I'll do a bit of research in the morning and post back here with my findings.

Still around.

Also a spoon and some sugar to sweeten the pot. Let us know when they send a thank you reply.

Well, it just may be time to start offering BitBrew coffee mugs so that I can order in bulk.

You might look at discountmugs.com - I haven't used them and don't know if they're good or there is some catch but they offer various models and the printed normal style is listed as $3.38 each for 12 qty. They seem to offer an amazing variety of styles too.

Oops - Just saw that setup fee is $50 and shipping $30 so by the time you add $80 an order of 12 becomes much more costly. But 24 qty price is $1.69 so that may be acceptable. And I see 36 qty with setup and shpg is $133 (almost same as 24) so that's pretty good = $3.69 each.

Okay, I found someone local who can produce the mugs relatively cheaply. Due to the holidays, it will probably take at least two weeks before I have the final product in hand. Do we want to wait that long before I send the Thank You package?

BTW, the mugs will run about 1.75 BTC each and look like this:

  I don't think a wait will detract from the message as the Thank You letter will be the important thing, imho. Most offices run very slim and some of them are chaotic from Dec.24-Jan.2 or so anyhows. Were you able to convert any of the current bitcoins while the price was up? How many mugs did you have in mind? What is the total BTC needed and how many more do you need to pay for it?

Yea! Let us know what else you need. I'm willing to send 2 BTC more for the cause. I like these cups! I can envisioned them lined up on the shelves in that South Park episode I mostly penned. Of course, in the episode, Bitbrew is referred to as BethBrew, derived from BethCoin, named after Chef's (S.N.) eleventh true love, Beth Anne Konig. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=55252.msg657726#msg657726
