The idea came from thinking about sustainability, growth and recognition. To give folks rewards for something they were already doing to provide a foundation for people to do more while it being a symbiotic partnership. The membership card and T-shirt are identifiers and promotions for the mission of Legion M. And in turn, for instance, if their was some kind of agreement with a moviehouse chain that a member would go to see a Legion M project (or not), they would scan your membership card, while you buy a ticket, and you would earn points that way. Then those points could go to being used to acquire Legion M swag or to get the member to being closer to being an investor. There a lot of different reward programs out there and the game changer here would to be able to support people into becoming investors and support Legion M on a consistent basis. I know for myself, when it comes figuring out where my money is going is like comedy...TIMING IS EVERYTHING! And depending on the timing I might have to opt out of investing til another round. So with having x number of points that could translate into funding, then I could see how many x number of dollars I'd need to put in to invest.
