Adopt a Scientist

The uncertain funding situation of astronomy seems to be a global problem. Via etacar11 on Twitter I see that the SETI Institute has an "Adopt A Scientist" programme. Like animal adoption programmes, for only a few pounds, dollars, euros (or other favourite currency) per month you could help astrobiologists look for Martian analogs in California. You could even visit the Allan Telescope Array and have dinner with Jill Tarter and her husband.

The SETI Institute is a private, non-profit organisation and this type of fundraising is important to help them continue with their work.
