HAT 2022: Let them sleep!

We have a dream….

That dream is to enter December knowing CosmoQuest is financially ok, and that we can spend that magical time from Thanksgiving to New Years being grateful for 2 things: for all your help, and for the lack of Christmas Day launches or New Year’s Eve encounters on the schedule (but mostly for your help). And in that warm fuzzy feeling of gratetude, we will sleep.

FAQ

What’s the plan?

We ask for money and do awesome things. You like our awesome things and give us money.

Ok – for real – What is the plan?

We are hosting the 2022 CosmoQuest-a-Con: Rockin’ with Robots and Rockets event October 21-23. If we can raise $40,000 by the end of that event (at midnight Eastern time), there will be no Hangout-a-thon this year! And if we fail… we are going to plan one that starts Dec 23 and ends when we have enough money or when the clock strickes midnight on Christmas Eve. This will just be Pamela, working her butt off to science at you, while she asks for the funding to keep us going.

Do not make her suffer like that! Donate today!

Can my company sponsor you?

Yes! At the $5000 level, we will run a 30 second add for your company once a week for 12 episodes of Astronomy Cast and 12 weeks of Daily Space during the 2022-2023 season. For $1000, you can get 2 episodes and 2 weeks instead. (Email cosmoquestx (at) gmail for the latest download stats as needed).

Is my donation tax deductible?

Yes, as allowed by law. We are part of the Planetary Science Institute, a 501(c)3 non-profit. You will receive donation receipts from our fundraising vendor, Kindful.

So, what do I need to do?

You normally have giveaways & weird stuff that happens when goals are met. Will that still happen?

Yup. We do. And we will have those this year too! During CosmoQuest-a-Con we will be doing those giveaways based on how the fundraising is going.

… that dream is sleep.
