World Transhumanist Association Pledge Drive

From the Transhumanist Declaration: "Humanity will be radically changed by technology in the future. We foresee the feasibility of redesigning the human condition, including such parameters as the inevitability of aging, limitations on human and artificial intellects, unchosen psychology, suffering, and our confinement to the planet earth." The World Transhumanist Association (WTA), an organization supportive of healthy life extension science and advocacy, is presently holding a pledge drive to match $25,000 before the end of January: "Bill Faloon of Life Extension Foundation and Brian Cartmell of Cartmell Holdings, LLC, have generously offered to help us kick off our first fundraising event by matching your donations up to $25,000 until January 31, 2008. We need 250 members to give $100 each, so your donations can be doubled. This is a unique opportunity we cannot afford to miss!" The pledge drive website explains how the funds will be used to expand the reach of transhumanist ideas.
