HELP FEED THE 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 AA management to strike.

But now you can help. For about $300 a day--that's less than the price of a 25" television set--you can help keep a pilot economically viable during his 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 Mediterranean cruise.

For you, $300 is nothing more than a half-month'srent or mortgage payment, but to a pilot $300 a day will almost replace his salary. Three hundred dollars a day will enable a pilot-in-need to upgrade his home computer, buy that CD player for his car, or enjoy a dinner 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 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.

"How will they know I'm helping?" Your pilot will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND within AMR management who just wants to help. Although the pilot won't know your name, he will be able to make collect calls to your home via a special operator, in case he needs additional funds.
