Help Wanted: The Space Show Needs Your Support
The Final Countdown Is On With Only Three Days Left In Our 2021 Annual Campaign Drive
Dec. 29, 2021
The Space Show wishes all of you a very Happy New Year, healthy holiday season and the same for 2022. As we approach the end of 2021, there is still time for your Space Show contribution to count for 2021 but Friday, Dec. 31 is the last day of the year and it is right around the corner. Despite 2021 challenges, The Space Show has continued bringing you great guests, lots of listener participation opportunities including phone calls, emails and blog commentary. The Space Show has continued our well established strong advocacy for commercial space development, a lunar human return, cislunar development, space property rights and eventual humans to Mars mission plans. We have supported having a strong national security space policy plus we love our planetary science program which is the best in the world. Many of you have promoted your books, websites, blogs, ideas and work on The Space Show this year as well as in previous years. Students have been on The Space Show gaining valuable experience related to their future skills and career choices. The list of Space Show 2021 accomplishments is a lengthy one but I think you get the picture. While thinking about this great picture, ask yourself if and how you benefitted from The Space Show during 2021? Is it now time to do a type of paying it forward with The Space Show and donating to our annual fundraising campaign for the year?
The Space Show production costs are expensive which is one of the many good reasons why we ask for your help through supporting us with a donation. The Space Show, as a listener supported program, wants to continue working hard advocating for the space industry we all want, especially in these uncertain times. The Space Show, as a live broadcast internet radio talk show with multiple phone lines for the guests and listener discussions, is not just another podcast. Our unique format featuring live broadcasts, real time callers and listener emails, all of which combine to help The Space Show stand out in bringing you in-depth information about all aspects of space exploration and development. The same helped us to earn the rank of #7 out of 20 space exploration podcasts by Feedspot.com. Each year we engage in our end of the year fundraising campaign to help us continue our work on into the coming year. Our annual campaign may be drawing to a close this year but our work for 2022 has hardly started as we move forward arranging early 2022 guests. Don’t forget that as a nonprofit 501C3 with the One Giant Leap Foundation as our parent, your contribution entitles you to an IRS tax deduction along with a California/state tax deduction (check with your tax advisor for details and applicability). If the tax deduction is important and you want it for this year, remember we have to receive your contribution by the end of the year. But tax deductions are not the only reason to contribute to us. You contribute to us because of our programming, because we fight and advocate for what you want in space, because we educate with facts and solid information and because we offer everyone the opportunity for civil discussions on all space related topics. We also give you a platform to inform, advocate, promote and push your ideas, theories, and thoughts and intellectual property regardless of the format. You contribute to us because you have a voice with our guests, with each other and in future programming. This is why you why we are asking you to contribute once again this year. We believe The Space Show delivers the value you deserve, require, and want. The Space Show believes that it has earned your respect which you show and return to us by helping to support us. For those of you that promote your books and works on The Space Show, ask yourself, would you be better off without access to our platform to get your message out or to promote your work? Since we help you, please help us back. In 2022, we will continue bringing you great guests addressing vital and interesting space topics. We will continue to make available a quality platform for you to promote your interests, your IP, books, websites, products and ideas. The Space Show vision will continue to shine brightly and light the way through 2022 and beyond. Your support helps us accomplish these goals.
Remember, The Space Show needs supporters just like you to help us stay strong to meet head on the challenges that we will encounter in 2022. We can't go it alone, we need your help. While our content is distributed free of charge, and we work hard to continue this policy, The Space Show programming is costly to produce. Please, don't rely on others to keep The Space Show strong. Keeping us strong is a group activity and we need your financial support along with your participation with our guests and programs. Please donate to The Space Show/One Giant Leap Foundation during our annual campaign now underway through the end of the year. We also greatly appreciate our existing supporters and welcome your continued support. You are our backbone and we can't thank you enough for what you do for our industry and The Space Show. Don't forget to inquire about our Advisory Board participation and the sponsorship/billboard options available to The Space Show supporters. The easiest and best way to donate is to use the Pay Pal button at the top of our home page, www.thespaceshow.com. If you want to send us a check, make it payable to One Giant Leap Foundation, P.O. Box 95, Tiburon, CA 94920. If you use Zelle with your bank, you can donate to us using Zelle. OGLF uses Chase Bank and the email address for Zelle is firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a reminder, The Space Show offers many unique benefits which is why we are more than just a podcast. Help us to continue with these benefits.
Thank you very much for your support and generosity. Your Space Show/One Giant Leap Foundation donation is an investment in our future through space which has over time proven to be beneficial for everyone here on Earth.
I want to wish all of you a very happy, healthy and safe Holiday Season, a prosperous New Year and again, a healthy 2022 for your family, yourself and everyone. We care about each and everyone one of you and your families and friends. Please continue to be careful, pay attention, stay healthy, well and alert. Let's all be here to celebrate our 21st birthday in June 2022 and many more after that.
