Genuine sand from Niku for $500. A piece of living history.

One of the Electra coin banks for $5,000, if they've been unpacked.

We have the sand, all nicely bottled in little jars.  If that stuff is alive I want to know about it! 
$500 sounds a bit steep to me but a thing is worth what someone will pay for it.

One of the Electra coin banks for $5,000, if they've been unpacked.

What Electra coin banks?  I don't remember any Electra coin banks. 
We had some Vega coin banks.  We auction a couple on Facebook. I think we have one left.

VEGA coin banks, right! Not enough morning coffee. I got that crossed with the Electra wooden models venture.

The sand has a definite novelty value. And a certain "I have a piece of it" appeal. And don't ask me why I know that.

A Vega coin bank???  My daughter would be most pleased with that. 


My bank account, on the other hand....


Im going to go out on a very fragile limb and offer a suggestion.  What if TIGHAR members uploaded their own videos, just short videos, talking about why the Earhart project is important to them. Maybe people could see the faces behind the faces. We all have our reasons why her story caught and held our attentions. Might help potential donors relate.  Just a thought. Please dont cut my limb down. :p

I like it.  We can embed videos in the "gallery" section of the Indiegogo campaign.  If you can make a sort video as Krystal suggests, just put it up on youtube and we should be able to download it from there.

Sweet Baby Jesus! I just looked at the funding website and then watched the total jump by almost $1,000 in 5 minutes! Now if that momentum would keep up!

We sent out a TIGHARNews this morning urging all the members to visit the site and I added a bunch of new perks.  More to come plus illustrations of what stuff looks like. We'll probably also drop about $300 to hire an outfit that claims to be able to greatly increase our exposure. This crowd funding business is interesting.  You have to learn how to play the game.  You can't just set it up, sit back and wait for the money to roll in.  It requires constant attention and improvement.

They have at times dabbled so, and usually mess the facts up a bit.

Agreed. I thought that movie was awful. Lots of eye candy though. I suppose if they made a movie about Niku, it would probably be equally cringe-worthy.

Ohhhh no.  I can see this coming.  We are not going to play who plays who in the movie.

Does the climate study continue to be within the scope of Niku VIII?
