Help the Hipsters Help Us

For Today Only! We have a matching donation offer. Any donations that comes in today will be matched up to $400! 7/31/2019

The Space Hipsters are attempting to raise enough money to send a Native American Girl from the Pascua Yaqui tribe near Tucson to Space Camp. Last year they raised $600 to help send three girls.

With the support of Space HIpster's

This year they have a very ambitious goal to raise $2170, the full cost of sending one girl.

With every $10 donation, you get your name entered once into the drawing to win the “Luciana Vega” American Girl doll and all of her Space Camp gear (retail value $300).

Send your donations via PayPal to HistorianMom@gmail.com. We will take donations until midnight (Cape Canaveral time) Friday, August 9, and our drawing will be held on Saturday, August 10th.

We have a month to raise $6,500! That’s a lot of money and we thought we’d give you a little incentive. (Yes, more of an incentive than knowing you’re helping a young deserving human being!)

Space Camp 2019 or Bust!

We started off in 2017 with cute little girls leaving the Reservation and flying on a plane for the first time. Their excitement was palpable. They were so nervous to leave their families and fly across the country, but they did it. They successfully graduated from Space Camp!

Sole Graduating 2018 with Astronaut Don Thomas

Three years later they’ve matured into young women going to high school and junior high. Only an unimaginable 1% of Native American students complete a math course as high school freshman. With a lump in my throat, we can say Saydee will be part of that 1%! Why? Because she wants to be an astronaut and knows she needs to do well in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). That’s all because she went to Space Camp.

That is the importance of this program. Giving these kids a fighting chance to finish high school, and maybe just maybe, finishing University. We know these kids have the confidence and foundation to do anything.

Let’s give these kids opportunities to pursue what ever they desire.  At the very least, we can support them, and help to inspire big dreams.

With the support of Space HIpster's

We would love to send more kids this year, however, we can’t go to Space Camp without your donation! It’s very expensive to fly from Tucson to Huntsville, and Space Camp registration is not cheap.  We have to raise $6,500 before August. Please help!

A little bit nervous…

 

As the saying goes, “It takes team work to make dreams work.” We are grateful to the Space Hipster community for helping us reach our goals. Our gratitude to the Pascua Yaqui community.  Thank you all for your support!
