ROLE MODELS + SOCIAL CONNECTIONS + INDIVIDUALITY + POWER = HIGH SELF-ESTEEM
"If not us -- who? If not now -- when?" -- President Ronald Reagan.
"We build healthy kids four different ways."
The age of the hero is passed.
My own role models, men and women I looked to in my youth have gone
on to their reward -- and their legacy -- my reward -- alone remains.
For those of us with a love of reading, there remains one last desperate
charge against the growing darkness of ignorance and hate in the world.
To nurture the natural spark of imagination in every child...
To encourage their own individuality and self-worth...
To use the human gift of words and pictures to direct them on toward
horizons we only grasped at but could not reach...
As H.G. Wells once wrote in hope -- "Wings over the world."
To inspire the pursuit of non-violent solutions in an aggressive society...

REQUEST FOR SPONSORSHIP
Thank you for taking a look at this request.
The links to the immediate left will take you through my entire site.
To simplify my presentation I have placed all the most important info
further down on this single page.
Altho it duplicates much of the info displayed elsewhere on the site,
it also includes this more intimate introdcution.
i-WONDER is fortunate to be represented by several educational
foundations which assist us in scheduling our appearances.
All fees, gifts or sponsorships made through these foundations
are completely tax deductable and of vital importance to our work.
Allow me to catch you up...
As you may or may not know -- my career's many paths have forged
It was a passing conversation in which a friend shared a book with me --
"The Princess Bride" -- and it's central character, "The Dread Pirate
Roberts" whose eternal reputation that has brought me to this place.
I was working on my first assignment as a freelance Entertainment
Writer and Photographer for AOL's netzine "Digital City".
This was the first job I was able to find after being called away from
the 2000 Classic Games Expo early due to my Grandmother's fall.
She actually broke her back and my wife & I became her care-
takers throughout her eventual recovery. I was eager to rebuild our
own lives. (We both had to quit our existing jobs to take care of her.)
As fate would have it my assignment called me to Griffith Park's
Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage. The event --
The memorial service for Clayton Moore -- The Lone Ranger.
Being in the presence of his empty mask hit me like a sledge hammer.
In just the previous year I had attended a similar site for first Roy --
I was confronted by my own real-life version of "Space Cowboys",
overnight it seemed that all my heroes were old men -- dead or dying.
Even the cover of TIME magazine featured the aged face of another
hero -- Sen. John Glen in his orange Space Shuttle flight suit.
Taking a cue from "The Dread Pirate Roberts" I conceived of a masked
hero -- in a flight suit -- that could carry on the tradition of what was
once taken for granted -- sharing stories with boys and girls --
that might make the world a better place.
And because this persona was separate from my public life --
he or she could carry on again in another time when I would no longer
be able. A true franchise in the spirit of the story that need never die.
All I needed now was my own Batmobile...
This then is how Commnader Page Turner came to be.
I have been invited to appear at a series of both paid and donated
events for the coming year. The next is only 8 weeks away!
I will require fresh printing of books and some initial cosmetic repair
on the Rocket Car. I am confidant beyond those immediate needs,
i-WONDER can continue it's modest operation and progress.
I was hoping that all of this would intrigue you on a Sponsorship level.
You may be interested to know of the continued development of the
persona of Page as a BLUE SKY RANGER! of Intellivsion fame.
The Rocket Car as well will be available for double-duty in any
promotional events planned for Intellivision Productions.
We are already in negotiations to develop new video games and
licensing based on both the Commander and JIMMY JET himself.
To start, we're talking about maybe $5,000 for printing and repairs.
Upon the vehicle's public debut -- other sponsorships will arise...auto, motorcyle and electronics come readily to mind!
Please e-mail me to discuss further.
I have been overwhelmed by the unpromoted response so far --
Without advertising of any sort I have been able to give away the
entire first printing (2000 books) to schools and public libraries.
The Internet response has brought requests from across the country --
but so spread out I cannot yet connect-the-dots for a road trip.
My ultimate goal would be a nationwide tour -- with the right sponsors.
So what's next?
I have even had the first book serialized in a dozen SOCAL papers!
I print the books in short runs -- 1,000 to 2,000 copies.
At those quantitites the 10 page full color card stock books cost $1.50 ea.
To make it's public debut the Rocket Car needs tires, paint, minor fiber-
glass repair and a tow-bar. I have already refurbed a towing vehicle.
With the massive crowds at the upcoming events I look to initial book
sales alone to provide monies to undertake the next step of restoration
on the Rocket Car and even a trailer for safer transport to the next event.
So far I have done all of this alone. I thank you for your consideration.
You may even represent a similar group yourself.

Other premiums such as T-shirts, buttons and more are also
available featuring your logo adorning the Flag Ship!
