Subject: Prometheus Project Pledge Totals

The Prometheus Project:

      Convincingly demonstrated, scientifically proven and published,
      fully reversible long-term brain cryopreservation within 10 years.

Latest Pledge Totals

     As of midnight PDT August 12, 1996, the total of pledges is $301,200 per
year for each of 10 years. The latest pledge of $1000 per year for all ten
years came from Sweden via email last night. The pledger wishes to have his
name remain confidential at this time, but he sent some suggestions and the
following note of hope for the Project.

>From Sweden:
>I eagerly await the projects plan and business plan for any spin-offs,
>I hope the later mostly get channeled back into more research. 
>Keep up the good work! I like this idea since it helps something
>substantial to hapen. I hope the quality of the work will be good,
>that is more important then positive results.

It certainly is gratifying to see more international support materializing
for the Prometheus Project.

     Pledge totals in each dollar level are now:

          3 for $50,000 per year for 10 years,
          8 for $10,000 per year for 10 years,
          7 for $5,000 per year for 10 years,
          1 for $4,000 per year for 10 years,
          1 for $3,000 per year for 10 years,
          1 for $2,500 per year for 10 years,
          3 for $2,000 per year for 10 years,
          1 for $1,200 per year for 10 years,
          19 for $1,000 per year for 10 years,
          1 for $500 per year for 10 years.

The 45 pledges total $3,012,000 over all ten years.

     Pledge totals per year by national origin:

     Australia                  $4,500
     Canada                    $22,000
     France                     $2,000
     Sweden                     $1,000
     United States            $266,700
     No country                 $5,000

Even though we have support from Australia, Canada, France and now Sweden,
none has yet appeared from the UK. I find this a bit surprising since I know
that there are many dedicated and serious cryonicists in the UK. What is
holding you back? Are you going to sit there and let France, Sweden and your
former "colonies" Australia and Canada out-pledge you? ;)
