American Airlines "Pilot Adoption Program" Needs You!
Even though President Clinton has temporarily averted the pilots' strike against American Airlines, there is still time for us to show the world just how much we care.
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 as if that weren't bad enough, many of them may soon be deprived of a paycheck for several weeks -- or even a month! -- 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 his or her 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 spent fishing in Florida or a Mediterranean 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.
Your commitment of 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 year old Lexus for a new Ferrari, or enjoy a dinner (with champagne) at the Ritz-Carlton.
"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 plan to invest the $1.2 million lump sum they will receive upon retirement.
"HOW WILL THEY KNOW I'M HELPING?"
Your pilot will be told that he or she has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to help in a time of need. 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 -- just in case additional funds are needed for unexpected expenses.
