Yeah. If it's a "donation", shouldn't it be free of sales tax? And I have a hard time believing shipping a shirt, booklet and button costs $10.

Maybe it's cause this same package went for over $200 on ebay...

I don't think it's that much cash at all. The shipping is a little high but when it's for a good cause I don't mind doing it. I wasn't able to attend the memorial, which would've cost me way more money to go than this.

Regaurdless of the price tag it's a nice gesture to still allow the fans who couldn't make the memorial to at least have something from it.

I don't think $35 is that bad for the package, but the $10.50 shipping is ridiculous. $45.50 for a shirt, booklet, and button, is a bit pricey. I'm trying not to whine about money, but for how broke I am, it really matters. I want to make a donation in some form though.

In total it would be 50 dollars for me, since I live in Europe.

No brainer though since itīs for a good cause, and that shirt is pretty good looking as well...

My problem is that if they want a donation, they should ask for a donation - and if they want to sell shirts, they should sell shirts. Don't jack the price up n the package to compensate.

Gotta be honest, not really in love with the shirt design either, but if it were like $20 I would still buy one. I will make some form of a donation at some point, but I have absolutely no money right now.
