Help the Hipsters Help Us

For Today Only! We have a matching donation offer. Any donations that comes in today will be matched up to $400! 7/31/2019

The Space Hipsters are attempting to raise enough money to send a Native American Girl from the Pascua Yaqui tribe near Tucson to Space Camp. Last year they raised $600 to help send three girls.

This year they have a very ambitious goal to raise $2170, the full cost of sending one girl.

With every $10 donation, you get your name entered once into the drawing to win the “Luciana Vega” American Girl doll and all of her Space Camp gear (retail value $300).

Who are the Space Hipsters, and Why are They so Unusual?

With over 17,000 members, the Space Hipsters group on Facebook is more than an online forum of space enthusiasts. They’ve extended their reach to bring about real changes in the real world.

Created in February 2011, by writer and blogger Emily Carney, Space Hipsters “embrace the inner space nerd.” They’ve organized field trips and give-aways, many members are space industry experts – including astronauts and their families, and the Space Hipster logo was spotted aboard the International Space Station!

Last year, the Space Hipsters helped send Native American girls aged 9 -11 to U.S. Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. The space-inspired American Girl Doll, Luciana Vega, was raffled with all of the proceedings going to fund a Space Camp STEM adventure.

Three girls from the Pascua Yaqui tribe in Tucson, Az. were supported by the Space Hipsters generous donation.

We’re pleased to announce that this unusual group of space fans is doing it again! The American Doll, Astronaut Luciana and her collection (worth $300!), is being raffled for only $10 per ticket.

If you missed the opportunity last year this is your chance.
