If I order 6 copies of the handbook, would you be willing to start a thread to give away 5 copies to people who cannot afford to buy it, such as the first year teacher? First come first served.
I was thinking that this could go to the first 5 people who say they need it with no questions asked, because I don't want people who are already suffering from this terrible economy to have to justify their need, and I believe that only people who need this will ask for it.
I would like to help fans who are suffering from this economy, but if the logistics are a pain in the butt for you then I will understand.
I know from our recent poll that the $6.95 initial price isn't onerous to most of our readers, but I also know that the last thing we want to do is exclude any offseason junkies because times are a little tough. So let's do it this way....
1) I assume people might be hesitant to ask for this publicly, so if you want a TwinsCentric Offseason Handbook, but feel like you can't afford it, EMAIL ME (not message me through the system) at John at Bonnes dottt com. Since we only have five to giveaway, please only do so if you feel like you otherwise cannot afford it. Also, please include your Twins Daily username.
2) If anyone wants to make a similar pledge to purchase as Anonymous is, whether it's one more copy or ten, post it in the thread below. And THANK YOU.
I'll find time to cross compare the pledges with the sales logs, tally up the giveaway copies that have been purchased and send out copies to the first X number of requests we get.
Let's try it this year and see how it goes. Maybe it can be an annual thread. Or maybe it's a logistical disaster. I'm willing to find out.
