I know it now seems like before the Punic Wars, but just a couple of years ago, Jonny, in his usual generous and kind way, offered on CH.com free bumper stickers that simply said "clusterheadaches.com" in bold black letters.
I have to tell you that I live in a burg, a hamlet, a backwater, with not many folks around (and I love it!), but in the past two years I've gotten about 100 responses to that sticker, and yesterday, a woman with cluster headaches stopped for an hour asking all kinds of questions, the end result of which is that she will be joining OUCH tomorrow.
Could OUCH, not Jonny, foot the bill for more such stickers? Could we sell them in our soon-to-be-formed shop? And who knows how many drivers have seen the sticker on the highway and have had their interest piqued? No, I don't have any other stickers on my car -- no "Mother-in Law in Trunk," or "Proud Parent of an Honor Student at East Jesus Middle School" (true, by the way, and obviously stuck-on by one who does not believe that pride goeth before a fall)-- but I still think it's a really, really (drummer) effective way to increase awareness and get our message out there.
I don't know under whose supervision in OUCH this would fall, but I think it's a good idea that ought to be pursued. With all due respect, IMHO, of course.
