BCR T-ShirtWe offer BCR Logoware for donations of $50 or more. The first option is a 100% cotton T-shirt with our logo, designed by artist Lori Escalera, in glorious full color (our name and website address are on the back in blue). Sizes available as of now are S, M, and L. Supplies of each size are limited. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

BCR Tote BagThe other option is a handsome and sturdy tote bag designed for us by the June 15 Collection and made of sustainable, eco-friendly jute, rattan cane and 100% cotton in off-white. It has both cane handles and a 35-inch long, one-inch-wide shoulder strap. Bag size is 14” wide, 13” high and 7” deep. Our logo and name in green and blue are in the front, and our website address in blue is on the back. The entire design is attractive but not too fussy for guys. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

You don’t have to take a gift if you want your entire contribution to benefit BCR. If you do select one, it will be mailed to the address on your donation form on the back of this newsletter. Please be sure to include your phone number or email address in case there’s a problem. For other questions, contact Jim Lamm at (310) 839-6896 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you prefer to use your credit card to donate via Paypal, be aware that the Paypal page has no address or phone information nor check boxes for the bag or T-shirt, so you’d have to get in touch with us separately if you want one of those.
