Asgardia Citizen Package. ¶
Hello fellow Asgardians.
I have approached the administration and mentioned to others about a possible Citizenship package. I haven't heard from them about this and I know they are busy so I'll also put it out here as well.
When we gain our citizenship, we should be of the mind to have some Asgardia Paraphernalia around the house, right?
My idea is to have several citizenship packages available for purchase when ordering the ID card. Flags, Lapel pins, Shoulder Crests, Hats etc. All citizens would have the chance to gain a package when ordering our new citizenship cards. Every Citizen should strive to obtain a card at least. The rest is optional, but there ought to be a small fee for just the card as well, to cover production and shipping costs.
ID Card, Certificate & Mailing: $5 (Depending on costs)
Packages can look something like this: (All packages include the card and certificate)
1 Asgardian Desktop flag with pole and stand. Price $10 (or less depending on costs and included shipping)
Package 2 All of Package 1 plus: 1 medium sized Asgardian flag 1 Asgardian Lapel Pin Price: $20
Package 3 All of Package 2 plus: 2 Asgardian shoulder patches with insignia embroidered 1 Asgardian Cap Price: $50
And so on up the line. We could get into clothing and USB drives as well. USB's can be made to our specifications including shape.
These are just examples and prices are estimates.
I am throwing ideas out there so we can generate some cash so Igor doesn't have to fund this all on his own. I hope we get his blessing on this.
Every Asgardian will get the ID card. even if we have to use the available Bitcoin faucets to earn the small fee, we all ought to have one :-). Most will want some size of souvenir package as well. It's a perfect opportunity to fund our new nation. I also offer this:
Having been involved in the import/export business for the past 20 years, I have factory connections in 3 global locations for this type of promotional material and others. I would be willing to have all materials made and shipped at cost. i.e. ALL increases from citizenship package purchases would go toward Asgardia. Wouldn't be a tax, but would be covering the costs incurred (Materials are not free nor is labour for assembly nor postage and handling) and a bit of increase for "the cause" with very cool "stuff".
It would be an honour to be a supplier of such important pieces at the birth of our new nation.
My skills lie in sourcing both existing items and finding manufacturers for custom pieces. From Uniforms to LED Ice Cubes. Sailboats to electronics. All I need is a drawing, or an idea. Flag and insignia on a set of tumblers, maybe? Shower curtains :-). Laser engraved wood coasters?
Think about it - if there is a $5 increase on each package and every Asgardian purchased one - 570,000 x $5 = 2.85 million in Asgardia's bank account and a ton of people proudly displaying their newly acquired citizenship. Almost immediately. Never mind higher end things that many Asgardians would enjoy. All available on the 'net and shipped globally.
I am happy to offer the services to make this happen. As I said above - at my cost.
Thoughts and comments please.
