Hi all,

We are just about to cross the $1000 mark on our PayPal fundraiser, and 
along with the $710 raised from the Facebook campaign, we are making a 
dent in recovering the funds spent on ARISSat-1 and those funds that 
will be spent on FOX. I want to thank those that donated, and those that 
took the time to add the widget to their webpages and QRZ profiles, and 
especially recognize two members who have excelled in creating exposure 
for our campaign. John Papay, K8YSE and Clint Bradford, K6LCS have 
pulled away from the pack in the number and amount of donations 
resulting from their copies of the widget, with $290 dollars raised 
between them. Gentlemen, thank you!

I've talked with Martha, and beginning with the $1250 mark, we will be 
randomly picking a donor from every $250 increment to receive an item 
from the AMSAT store. We currently have two different hats, a nice 
luggage tag, or a desktop thermometer/clock set to choose from, all 
bearing the AMSAT name and logo. I hope to announce our first recipient 

Thanks again, and if you'd like to donate to the campaign or share the 
widget to your own website, please visit www.amsat.org. The widget is on 
the front page below the ARISSat-1 news, and you can click on "Give" to 
donate, or "add to site" to receive the HTML code, or "supporters" to 
scroll through the statistics. I hope to soon see more familiar names 
scrolling across the widget soon, showing your support for AMSAT's next 
two satellites.

73, Drew KO4MA
AMSAT-NA VP Operations

Donations, memberships, and store purchases may also be made through the 
AMSAT store on the website, or by calling Martha at 1 888 322 6728.
