$383,500.00 has been pledged to the Ron Paul Blimp project so far. So if everyone who pledged follows through, there is enough to rent the blimp for a month. Any extra money raised will likely go toward keeping the blimp in the air even longer.
The organizers are currently setting up a legal vehicle to accept donations for the blimp. They’ve hired an attorney, and artwork is also being prepared.
They currently need someone trustworthy, with experience managing large event budgets, to act as treasurer. This will be a paid position, and you’ll probably get to ride in the blimp. If you know anyone who has such experience, and would like the position, please ask them to contact Jerry Collette at http://www.ronpaulmax.com/i_will_help.html.
