Okay, so we are extra-proud of being able to send out several telescopes over the last 2 months. Donors to our yearly fundraiser make this all possible along with help from Lunt Solar Systems, NATCA Charitable Foundation and Celestron. 
We sent a doublestacked 40mm H-Alpha scope to Steve Astromag, the Lunt LS50 and Skywatcher mount to Pranvera Hyseni and the outreach group in Kosovo, we sent out 3 iMacs with imaging software to Mike Overacker, Kevin LeGore and Roger Kennedy, we were able to send a 60mm H-Alpha scope and Celestron CGEM mount to Rafael Colón Romano , we sent a 40mm h-alpha scope to another group in the Dominican Republic, we sent out a 60mm scope to Julio Vannini in Nicaragua and finally, all of them also got a big load of solar glasses to help their outreach. This was well over $15,000 with of equipment!
Why? Because its the right thing to do to promote science education around the world. The student who will revolutionize space travel and/or set the first human foot on Mars and the kid who will complete our understanding of a unified theory or multidimensional space travel is currently sitting in a classroom waiting to be pointed in the right direction. 
Ignore them and you get what we have now. 
Who's in?
