Dear Space Show Listeners:
The Space Show/One Giant Leap Foundation is now actively engaged in our annual fundraising campaign which will go through the end of the year. The Space Show is completely listener supported so we need your support to continue our programming. If you like The Space Show, please support us. Without your support, we cannot continue our programming schedule and the free distribution of our content.
For the new year 2017, The Space Show is striving to maintain its present program scheduling. We would like to do more webinars and debates during the year . These are expensive programs to produce, especially the webinars since they are professionally engineered. If you like this content, please support us. In addition, The Space Show welcomes your ideas for meaningful, relevant, and "doable" debate and webinar topics and guest suggestions. We want to hear from you.
Those of you that listen to Space Show program know I frequently appeal for your financial support. This is because your financial support keeps The Space Show on the air. Honestly, it is really that simple. Simply put, it is your financial support that keeps Space Show programming coming your way. Don't forget, we never take fees from guests to be on the program, even when we are helping a guest (maybe even you) promote books, movies, or other IP, including unique ideas and theories. Many of you benefit from this promotion, even those of you that call shows or call and Open Lines show and have not yet been a "formal" guest on the program. `Just as The Space Show supports you, we do need and ask for your support in return.
The Space Show is a non-profit 501C3 and California Public Benefit Corporation. Our parent 501C3 corporation is the One Giant Leap Foundation (OGLF) (www.onegiantleapfoundation.org). We understand that you have choices in making your tax deductible contributions and we certainly appreciate your including us in your gifting priorities. Contributions to The Space Show should be made through Pay Pal or if by check to One Giant Leap Foundation. Mailing and Pay Pal instructions can be found by clicking on Pay Pal on the right side of our home page, www.thespaceshow.com or by clicking on the OGLF page, www.onegiantleapfoundation.org/individuals.htm.
We are now accepting a limited number of additional Space Show sponsors. The sponsor gets their banner ad on The Space Show home page plus I read a 60 second or less sponsor message on each Space Show program (there are a few exceptions such as when we do the 60 minute shows). For information on being a sponsor, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, the Listener Voice option is extended for 2017. If you have something you want to say to The Space Show audience, you can have your one minute or shorter mp3 message placed in the Listener Voices box on the lower right side of the website homepage. You can change your message quarterly. Contact me for details. Remember, if you pay U.S. federal taxes, you get a tax deduction for your gift. The same is true for those of you paying California taxes as we are both a federal 501C3 nonprofit corporation and a California Public Benefit Corporation. Please check with your tax adviser regarding any and all tax questions that you might have regarding potential OGLF tax deductions. You are also encouraged to contact me with your questions and comments about the show or anything else. Above all, please support us. 2016 is quickly coming to a close so now is the time to support The Space Show/OGLF by making your Space Show contribution . As a final reminder, you can make your donation online using Pay Pal at the above links (or click on the Pay Pal logo on our home page). For those of you who prefer mailing a check, please make your check payable to One Giant Leap Foundation, Inc. and mail it in care of me to P.O. Box 95, Tiburon, CA 94920 USA. As I say on most live shows, your donations and support are what keeps The Space Show on the air.
Thank you for your contribution and ongoing support. I look forward to sharing the New Year with you through The Space Show and One Giant Leap Foundation, Inc. Please contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions. Let's all work to make 2017 a banner year for space, prosperity, health, and peace around the world.
