Space Rocks for Katrina
Geoff Notkin, the artist /photographer/ designer who designed my website, is also a hunter and collector of meteorites. He's used his contacts in the international meteorite community to put together a raffle of donated space rocks and meteorite-related items. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the American Red Cross to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Among the prizes are a guided meteorite hunting expedition, rare and wonderful books on the space rocks and, of course, many fabulous specimens.
The tickets are only $10 a piece and they've already raised $5,000.
The website for the raffle is: http://www.aerolite.org/meteorite-raffle.htm
Have a look, buy a ticket, and best of luck -- to you and all of those affected by Katrina!
