I just thought of an idea to help Linux Mint. I have a Pro Account at CafePress and a section devoted to Linux Mint.
There are lots of good artists who use Linux Mint, along with a lot of fans of Linux Mint.
My idea, I want to have anyone who can do designs to make up designs that are themed for Linux Mint (like case badges, shirts, hats, mugs, mousepads, etc) and submit them here in a reply. I will put the designs on products and do a fair mark-up on the products. When the products sell, the profits will be donated to Linux Mint. Make sure to mention what products you want the design on.
This way, the artists get exposure, Linux Mint gets exposure, Linux Mint will have a set of Community Contributed Products, and Linux Mint will get the profits so they can pay for things like hosting, bandwidth, etc.
I don't want any money from this, I'm doing good as it is in life. However, I feel it is a shame that such a great distro like Linux Mint can't afford to buy needed bandwidth and hosting to host the ISO's and such. Plus Linux Mint is totally awesome and the products will help get the word out.
Below is a list of products designs can be put on.
