Dontations to the Great Neck South Robotic team for the FIRST Robotics Competition

If anyone is interested in making a donation to support the Great Neck South Robotics Team (AKA Rebellion) in their trip to the FIRST finals in Atlanta (the second time they're going in two years!). Anyone interested in learning more about the competition can go to

Please send the donation to the follow address:

Mr. John Motchkavitz (He's the head of the technology dept. and mentor of the team)
C/O Great Neck South High School
341 Lakeville Road
Great Neck, New York 11020

Please mark the contribution as for the support of the team.

All contributions will be posted on the robotics team website ( and corporate sponsors have the opportunity to have their logo placed directly on the robot where it can be seen. N.B. the finals will be webcast by NASA TV so any posted logos have the opportunity to be seen nation wide.

I am supporting this effort since my daughter is a member of this team and is, in fact, the safety captain. In the regionals she won the Safety Captain award and we are very proud of her and the rest of her team's accomplishments. The team is trying hard to raise the rest of the funds required for the trip but, unfortunately, the 3 weeks time period between finding out that they were going to the nationals and the date they need to leave does not give much time for the usually cookie sale/car wash fund raising.

Thank you in advance for your reading of this post.
