THE STORY:

Get your book autographed by the author and Peter Diamandis or Pay it Forward & give an inspiring book to groups of AHEPA and HALC. Welcome to a one of a kind fundraiser that will buy a very special book for members within the various bodies of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association family (AHEPA) and the Hellenic American Leadership Council (HALC).

Books inspire innovation and together we want to inspire people by providing this book: A story of a Band of Renegades, an Epic Race, and the Birth of Private Spaceflight. It's a book about a Greek American - Peter Diamandis, one of the world’s 50 greatest leaders according to Fortune and one of my favorite people of our generation. The foreward is written by Sir Richard Branson and the afterward is written by famed physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking.

Everyone’s combined pledges will go towards purchasing this incredible book for as many aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators as possible. 

*** If that wasn’t enough, for every book given to AHEPA and HALC members, the author Julian Guthrie and Peter Diamandis will give away another hardcover copy of “How to Make a Spaceship” to students competing in FIRST robotics.***

Flying and space exploration has always fascinated me, with your pledge to help buy books for AHEPA you are also helping me win the HeroX challenge and fulfill a LONG time dream of mine!

If you want to purchase the book directly on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1594206724?tag=competitor-191-20

From Peter, Julian and myself,

Thank you for making a world of a difference!
