Back in 2014 the meteorite community came together and helped make
history and a dream come true by sending Marissa Fanady on a
life-changing meteorite hunting expedition where she became the first
(as far as we can tell) person in a wheelchair to ever find a
meteorite. It's time to rally the banners again, but this time for a
much larger project.
Marissa is trying to move out west to Tucson, AZ so that she can
pursue a life devoted to meteorites and their study. She needs our
help again, not only with raising the funds to facilitate this move,
but more importantly in spreading the word about her campaign. Every
day it seems like some campaign goes viral and raises money for a
cause that appears less than worthwhile - let's get this campaign to
go global and help a most deserving young lady realize her potential.
She made a video describing her situation, goals, and reasons for
wanting to move, it can be viewed here:
She has a GoFundMe campaign here:
Please, share the video and fund raising campaign links any way you
can; if you run a website consider putting them on a banner, share
them with local media, forward this email, share the links on
Twitter/Facebook/Instagram, whatever you can do to spread the word
will help. Of course if you can contribute to the fund raiser that
would help, too, but this time it's going to take more than just our
small community to help her make this happen.
I sincerely thank you for your time and any help you are able to provide.
Michael in so. Cal.
