A 'professional' fundraising effort for cryonics
research?  Absolutely.  In fact, it's obvious.  What's
the alternative, a non-professional effort?, no effort
at all?

Don't be diverted by Charles' negativity.  (No doubt
he would characterize it as 'realism'. ;-})

A google search for "fundraising" scores 3,800,000

The first of these is: 

Association of Fundraising Professionals

at:  http://www.afpnet.org/

"fund raising mailing lists" scores 176,000 hits,
"fundraising mailing lists" scores 93,400,
"fundraising fundamentals", 34,400, and 
"fundraising "how to"", 1,070,000.

Go for it.  I'd be glad to collaborate with you on
this.  Contact me offlist.

Best, Jeff Davis

Finally, I started my suggestion with "I'd like to
suggest three things....we should... etc."  And ended
with "What do you think?" I believe that made it 
clear that I was throwing out a suggestion for
discussion, not giving an order. But if anyone besides
Mr. Pratt thought I was telling others they should do
things, I am sorry.  I did not mean it that way at

Now, what do others think of the idea? Perhaps Rudi
Hoffman can tell us if this kind of "selling" could
work. Rudi, could it fly?
