As a subscriber to the International Women's Air And Space Museum email newsletter, I recieved this news in the email yesterday:
As you are probably aware, the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) are scheduled to receive the Congressional Gold Medal on March 10, 2010 in Washington, DC. We are pleased to pass along this request from Nicole Malachowski for support of this event and ask you to consider making a donation at www.flygirls.org.
"Please help 'HONOR THE WASP' by supporting this Congressional Gold Medal Celebration with your tax deductible donation. 100% of the funds raised will be used for the cost of the WASP individual medals, the costs of meals, transportation and other logistical support. Your help will go a long way toward making this event successful."
We will take any donation, from any individuals or organizations/corporations. Any and all help is appreciated. Also, please feel free to forward this to anyone you think would be interested in helping these heroines of America's Greatest Generation. There is a sense of urgency to this, as we've only got 30 days to plan this very large event. Thank you for your consideration. As always, I'm grateful for any support you can provide me in this effort to honor our WASP!
