Thank you for sharing this!  We can use help from individual donors as well
as firms.

I am the coach of FLL #447 - Knights In Rusting Armour.    This year has
been fantastic!   The team has not only learned a lot of great robotic
skills, they designed a snake catcher, and have helped many other teams as
well.   They were so excited when they won the 1st place Champions Award at
the NC State Competition.   This qualified the team to go to the World
Championship.  (This year it is in Houston in April.)

   However, we need your help.   The cost for the team to go is $8,000.
We have had great response so far, but aren't there quite yet....   Would
you be willing to donate $10 or $20 (or even more?)  (If you are interested
in sponsoring as a business or at a higher level, for $500 we'll list you
as a sponsor and put you on the t-shirt!!)

   Giving sooner lets us focus on competing well at World's rather than
having our time and attention split between preparing and fundraising.

   To donate or for more information, go to http://fll447.org

(and another one to give a different idea - this is before the mission was
sped up)

Thank you for considering,
