Space Show 2011 Fundraising Campaign

Annual Appeal, Nov. 21, 2011

Dear Space Show Listeners:

My best wishes to all of you for a great upcoming Holiday Season and New Years.  The Space Show and I personally wish you a terrific 2012 chocked full of health, happiness, economic prosperity, and a peaceful world.  I, like all of you, hope for a year of  significant and productive space development. The Space Show/OGLF is absolutely 100% committed to that long term outcome.

Permit me to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you who have so generously supported The Space Show/One Giant Leap Foundation (OGLF) during this year and in past years. The Space Show relies entirely upon your support for its continued operation and programming. And we never ever take fees from guests to be on the program though many guests use The Space Show for the promotion of their fine books and exciting intellectual property.  To continue with free program access, archives, podcasts, webinars, The Classroom series, and programs for the coming year and beyond, along with the opportunity for many of you to continue promoting and discussing your own work, projects, and views, we need to be ever stronger in our financial foundation for 2012 and the future.

This year is quickly coming to a close, and yes, its been a challenge for many of us, including The Space Show. We all know the economic struggles faced by our nation and many of us at the individual level. Yet many of us see viable paths to solutions to our national and international problems running through the broad arena of space development and exploration. So please support The Space Show/OGLF by making a 2011 contribution to help maintain and further develop Space Show and OGLF programming, benefits, outreach, and services.

You can make your donation online using Pay Pal at either www.thespaceshow.com/donate.asp or www.onegiantleapfoundation.org/individuals.htm.  Simply click on the Pay Pal logo.  If you prefer mailing a check, please make the check payable to One Giant Leap Foundation, Inc. and mail it in care of me to P.O. Box 95, Tiburon, CA 94920 USA.  Remember that OGLF is a 501C3 non-profit corporation so you will get a federal tax deduction to the extent allowed by U.S. law.  OGLF is also a California Public Benefit Corporation so if you pay California taxes you can get a California tax deduction as well.  Please check with your tax advisor for the applicability of these potential tax deduction rules to your specific situation.

Your gifts make possible The Space Show programming, the free archives going back to the beginning in 2001, and the upcoming programming for 2012 and the future. It is your generosity that makes it possible to bring to all of you, on a global level, a wide diversity of topics, issue discussions, and guests from around the world.

Thank you for your support. I look forward to sharing the new year with you through The Space Show and the One Giant Leap Foundation, Inc.  Please contact me at drspace@thespaceshow.com if you have any questions.

Best Wishes and Sincerely,

Dr. David Livingston
