Dear Space Show Listeners:
Re: Space Show/One Giant Leap Foundation 2019 Year End Appeal And Donation Request
The Space Show/One Giant Leap Foundation Annual Campaign is in full swing as we approach the end of 2019. We certainly want to thank the many of you who have supported us during 2019 and over the last almost 19 years. For those of you who have not yet supported The Space Show, do consider what The Space Show does for supporting space development, exploration, the many projects, books, movies, and works by many of you and those in our community. The Space Show also works with students of all grades including graduate school to help assure their continued interest in space and eventually move into their careers. In addition, we play a strong role in space education on a global basis given the audience reach of The Space Show. We help people here and around the world to know and value the importance of space to us all. Finally, we provide multiple opportunities for listeners to talk with and exchange ideas with guests and other listeners. Let's not forget that in addition to the above, The Space Show provides a quality source of professional and family entertainment.
The Space Show relies entirely upon your support for its continued operation and programming. It is because of your support that we have been able to keep our content freely available to everyone on the internet despite economic pressures for changes. We also provide many of you with a microphone and platform to promote your books, crowd sourcing projects, blogs, ventures, research, ideas, and more. We certainly plan on continuing doing this for 2019 and beyond so your support now is more important than ever. This year our goal is to raise $20,000 to cover not only our annual operating expenses but to finally replace our 20 year old analog telephone hybrids with new digital phone hybrid gear. Moving to digital hybrids will significantly improve Space Show audio quality but we can't there alone or without your help. So again, please do support The Space Show with your financial gift during our 2019 campaign. We understand that you have many choices for your contributions supporting space organizations as well as organizations doing excellent work in other fields. In selecting The Space Show, we are honored and will do our best to continue to earn your support and approval.
The year 2019 is quickly coming to a close. If you have not yet contributed to The Space Show, please consider doing so. Remember, while our content is free, the program is not free to produce and distribute. Your support makes a difference and helps to keep us strong. We are also a nonprofit so your donation is tax deductible if you pay federal US taxes and the same if you pay California taxes as we are classified as a Public Benefit Corporation in California.
You can make your donation online using the new Pay Pal at app at the top of The Space Show home page or any Space Show website page. Using this new PayPal app means that PayPal will distribute all of your donation to The Space Show/One Giant Leap Foundation as they do not subtract fees using this app for donating. Your receipt will come to you by email from email@example.com. If you prefer mailing a check, please make the check payable to One Giant Leap Foundation and mail it in care of me to P.O. Box 95, Tiburon, CA 94920 USA.
Thank you for your support. I look forward to sharing the New Year with you through The Space Show and One Giant Leap Foundation, Inc. As this is the holiday season we wish it to be a very warm and loving season for all. Keep it safe and keep looking up. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Best wishes for the best ever with the new year 2020,,
Dr. David Livingston, Host
