Subject: Soliciting Abduction Study Completion Funds


Just heard from one of the abductees that he isn't well enough
off, especially this time of year with the holidays coming up,
to donate to the abduction study completion fund.

I believe there are enough people with comfortable incomes who
also have a known interest in ufology that advising them by
letter that the abduction study is only $5,000 from completion,
and asking them to help, might be the shortest route to getting
the study finished.

So along with directly soliciting contributions, I wonder if
soliciting people connected with ufology, abductees, and simply
members of the public who are interested to _sign_ such an
appeal might be a parallel and useful approach?

(There would be identity theft concerns, and I'm not suggesting
an actual digitized or photocopied handwritten signature, rather
just their name and city/province or state/country.)

People interested in ufology would probably quickly recognize
the signatures of well known researchers, authors, and others
who are recognized as being part of the field, for example, well
known abductees. In fact, along with the signer's name, it might
be worthwhile to add a qualifier such as 'ufologist', 'author',
'journalist', 'broadcaster', 'scientist', 'study staff member',
'abductee', or just 'interested member of the public.'

The letter itself should describe the study progress to date,
and ideally would have one piece of the data showing something
unusual waits to be analyzed. I have in mind some of the power
failures matching abductee incident logs.  The letter itself
would best be composed by people who participated in running the
study to ensure accuracy.

Would gathering signatures, creating a letter of appeal, and
compiling a list of possible benefactors to send it to be worth
the effort?  I'm not suggesting this should replace the appeal
for funds, but rather this might be a worthwhile parallel
activity.
