Dear Friends and Family

Introducing the 2008 Men’s Gymnastics U.S. Olympic Team: Joey, Jonathan, Justin, Kevin, Morgan, and Paul
These six young men will proudly represent the United States in the 2008 Olympic Games this summer in Beijing, China - and THEY NEED OUR HELP!
There is nothing more important to our Olympians than sharing this moment with the friends and family who have generously sacrificed their time, energy, and resources along the way. With your support (and the help USA Gymnastics!), we are proud to announce the creation of the MEN’S GYMNASTICS FRIENDS AND FAMILY FUND.
Now gymnastics supporters, club programs, fellow alumni, and fans have a way to tell Joey, Jonathan, Justin, Kevin, Morgan, and Paul just how much they are appreciated. Contributions to the MEN’S GYMNASTICS FRIENDS AND FAMILY FUND will help offset the exorbitant costs associated with attending the Olympics in Beijing for up to 4 members of the athlete’s personal friend and family network.

Here’s how it works:
The “Men’s Gymnastics Friends and Family Fund” allows the six (6) competing members of the 2008 Men’s Gymnastics Olympic Team to designate 1-4 beneficiaries to receive financial assistance for costs directly associated with their attendance to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Each Athlete is responsible for pre-selecting their Beneficiaries by July 10, 2008. The total funds raised will be allocated into six (6) equal parts that will be made available for distribution and reimbursement to the beneficiaries.

Contributions are not tax deductible, but you may pay with a credit card over the phone. Please make your contribution to:
Attn: Cathy Allen
“USA Gymnastics - Men’s Gymnastics Friends and Family Fund”
Pan America Plaza
201 S. Capitol Avenue, Suite 300
Indianapolis, IN 46225

Or, please call USAG with your preferred credit card:

Hey Mis,
FABULOUS way to help!
Small suggestion -- maybe people who donate can get a "fan of Justin Spring" t-shirt? It always surprises me what people will do for a random shirt rather than just out of the kindness of their hearts...
