    FEED A CHICK FOR A MONTH: A contribution at this level will feed one of our fast-growing chicks for an entire month! As a sincere thank you for helping us grow our flock, we will send you your choice of one piece of schwag. Choose from the following:

    (1) REUSABLE GROCERY TOTE: Just say no to paper or plastic. Show you care by toting one of three designs on this roomy (15" x 14" x 7"), durable, 100% cotton-twill, over-the-shoulder bag. Choose one of three designs: "Live Green"; "Red is the New Green"; or "Sustainable (M)eats".

    (2) SUSTAINABLE (AND EDUCATIONAL!) WATER BOTTLE: High quality and BPA-free with AOF sustainability infographic. Let's get the word out that ostrich production requires dramatically less water than any other red meat. Save water... Pick Ostrich!

    (3) AOF LOGO or RED BIRD HAT: Your choice of embroidery... the official AOF team hat with logo on the front and "The Healthy Red Meat" on the back, OR a subtle, stylish, "Red Bird" on the front only. Incredibly comfortable, lightweight, classic 100% brushed cotton twill, low profile, with an adjustable fabric slide closure. We'll collect your logo and color choices after the campaign ends, and you'll be representing the future of red meat.

    (4) AOF T-SHIRT: Share your enthusiasm for the healthy, sustainable, red meat with our AOF T-shirt – the same one worn by Catherine in the video :) We'll collect sizes (from newborn to XXL adult) after the campaign ends.
