How do you want to explore our Universe?
A special message…
Hey everyone, this is the CosmoQuest Staff. We’re here to tell you that our boss, Dr. Pamela, needs our help. She’s been making our budget work by having multiple side-hustles. She’s in jeopardy of losing her benefits eligibility. We’d like to avoid that if possible, and are trying to raise the funds needed (donate here) to make sure all of us – even Dr Pamela – are eligible for benefits if they need them and are paid for the hours we work. This means she needs to be paid for the 20 hours a week she’s mostly been volunteering. Learn more in this message from Ally, Annie’s Twitter thread, and in this post Pamela posted on Medium.
