Help Feed AA Pilots
---- ---- -- ------
It's just not right. Thousands of pilots in our very own country are living
at or just below the six figure salary line. And if that wasn't bad enough,
many of them may go several weeks or months without a paycheck if they are
forced by American Airlines management to strike.
But now you can help. For about three hundred dollars a day ~ that's less
than the price of a 25" television set ~ you can help keep a pilot
economically viable during their time of need.
Three hundred dollars a day may not seem like a lot of money to you, but
to a pilot, it could mean the difference between a vacation fishing in
Florida or a Mediteranean cruise.
For you, three hundred dollars is nothing more than half a month's rent or
mortgage payment. But to a pilot, three hundred dollars a day will almost
replace his or her salary.
Three hundred dollars a day will enable a pilot to upgrade his or her home
computer, buy that new 100" television set, trade in the 6 month old Lexus
for a Ferrari, or enjoy a dinner (with champagne) at The Mansion.
"HOW WILL I KNOW I"M HELPING?"
Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the crew member
you sponsor. Detailed information about his or her stocks,bonds,401K, and
real-estate holdings will be mailed to your home. You will be able to watch
your pilot's net worth grow. You'll also get information on how they chose
to invest their 1.2 million dollar lump sum they get upon their retirement.
"HOW WIILL THEY KNOW I'M HELPING?"
Your pilot will be told that her or she has a SPECIAL FRIEND that just wants
to help. Although the pilot won't know your name, he or she will be able
to make collect calls to your home via a special operator in case they need
