Hi to all,
According to the Macedonian Law on donations and sponsorships in the
public activities, the donor and the receiver must have a written
contract. So we are in specific legal situation, if we want to say in
public that WMF is our 'merchandise sponsor' we must have written
contract (WMF and WMM). :)

Hi folks - I think it's fine if you'd like to
suggest that WMF is a sponsor. Sponsors don't have to be strictly financial sponsors.
'media sponsors' are often credited at major events and they simply provide
special media coverage, or dedicate their outlets to special coverage of the event.
You could say 'merchandise sponsor' or 'in-kind sponsor' - or anything
you like. You're not required to, but it would be nice to include that :)
