We should not have a use for advocacy $$$.
The only thing I can think of is for printing collateral,
however, web publishing should be adequate.

This is a non-profit, volunteer thing.  Many people
are anxious to "give back" in a lot of different ways.
Grass roots advocacy is the open source way. 
We need to keep providing techies, who know what
we can do, fodder to pull management toward PostgreSQL.

If we have gew-gaws like tshirts they should be
sold for cost.  (Hey, how about a button/pin
that says "PostgreSQL Advocate". )
