Good evening everyone,
I know I’ve been silent for a long while – one of the things I’ve been thinking about in the midst of this has been the perplexing fact that it does not seem possible to donate to money NASA online, which is particularly frustrating given that they were the recipient of less than half of one percent of the federal budget in the last fiscal period.
As of today, I discovered that you CAN donate to NASA – but only if you use bitcoin, or snail mail:
Since the requirement to purchase postage, physically print out a form, and then mail a physical form of money such as cash, check, or money order may be a big inhibitor for folks who may otherwise wish to donate $5 or $10 to NASA, I thought I would share this fundraiser to essentially put together a lump sum donation to NASA and thereby save its would-be contributors a little bit of postage and effort:
The disclaimers associated with this fundraiser are as follows:
1) The donation to this GoFundMe is not tax deductible, since you are technically giving money to an individual, not a charity.
2) NASA can do anything it wants with the money after it is in NASA’s hands. No specifying which purpose or project your money should go to.
