Or maybe with the wallpapers of me printed on it. ^^ Then maybe people will come here, and maybe some good programmers.

Devs with enough knowledge to write kernel/subsystem code will come across the project very easily, because just by googling for some win32 API you will come across parts of the Reactos codebase in most cases.
What Reactos (IMHO) needs is some Fortune 500 company which is willing to take the risk to invest in the project, knowing that they may be sued by MS at some point. I'm sure that there are many board directors, business angels, etc. which would have no problem to take that risk, after realizing the great potential this project has. But they cannot be reached by walking by with a t-shirt, or a Reactos bumper sticker
I really appreciate all the efforts in this thread, and all (positive) publicity is welcome, so don't get me wrong. It's just that it feels so pointless.
Sort of like school bake sales, yard sales, etc., but with things like shirts, cups, mouse pads, bumper stickers, etc. All the proceeds would go to the foundation.
