Good Morning!

I'm proud to say that the combined ARISSat-1 and FOX fundraising effort 
has gathered 690 dollars over the last 24 hours! Donations have been 
received from all over the globe, both from inside, and outside, of 
normal AMSAT circles.

The real potential in these two campaigns is being able to reach out to 
those outside of the normal AMSAT circles, and allow them to quickly and 
painlessly donate via PayPal. Donations may be any size, and we have 
received anywhere from $10 to $250 from individual donors.

To make this campaign really successful, we need -your- help, whether 
you can donate or not. Please visit the links below and either "share" 
the Facebook link to your wall, or on the PayPal widget, click "Add to 
Site" and include the code on your website, blog, or even just your QRZ 
entry. Everyone on this list has at least one place they can post the 
widget, and help AMSAT raise money for ARISSat-1 and FOX.

The links are:

If your club or group sends out HTML based emails, or has a website, or 
a blog, please ask them to add this widget too!
