Mark has given me permission to post this request in the off topics...

I have started a fund raiser for my 5th grade classroom. I am humbly asking fellow modelers to view this link and consider a donation through the Donors Choose web site...

If enough funds are raised, my classroom will be sent a Flir thermal imaging camera to explore, experience, actually see ENERGY. The variety of exciting science experiments is encouraging.

Your support will initially touch 27 young minds, and quickly expand to a couple hundred students as I share the curriculum/labs I write with other classrooms.

Every $$ counts and you can watch the support grow. We have a lot of members here, please send out a few PM's to you buddy list to help spread the word.

Just think what the cost of a glow plug, set of tail blades, or a servo could accomplish.

Here is a link:

A couple of my buddies have sent PM messages to tell me that a cheaper alternative is available from Flir that plugs into asmartphone.

I realize that option exists and was initially the Flir camera I was interested in purchasing for the classroom.

Unfortunately, there are many reasons why the phone version cannot be used in class, some reasonable reasons, some not so much. Sometimes red tape cannot be ignored. Regardless, I am not able to use that version.

I certainly appreciate the heads up and thoughtful suggestions. The guys that sent me the PM's are upstanding members here.

PayPal, Amazon, and eBay are a few of the methods available to contribute. Sometimes there is a dollar per dollar match, too.

Donations matching
So far we have received only one donation since I created this post. Thanks ssmith512.

Hopefully today's news will inspire more participation....

I just received notice that any donations made now will be doubled. The deadline for the donations matching is unknown, but one or more supporting corporations have chosen this project for donations matching.

YOUR DONATION WILL BE MATCHED/DOUBLED!
