No, I would assume that primary distribution would stay the same.
Meaning we would centrally purchase the SWAG and then distribute out to
the user groups. The user groups would handle the collections/donations
as they saw fit and then donate upstream to us. That is actually very
similar to how we do tradeshows now. Basically someone goes to a show
and says, "We need xyz". We ship them XYZ, they collect donations and
it gets donated back.


Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
