What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Bob Carlton was a flight controller who served our country during NASA's Gemini and Apollo missions. He was best known for monitoring the fuel levels in the Apollo 11 lunar lander ensuring that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin could safely land on the moon and return back to the space craft that would return them to Earth.

In addition to his historic contributions to space exploration, Bob Carlton was also a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend.

To honor his memory and the contributions he made to help manned space flight, his family is raising funds to plant a live oak in Johnson Space Center's memorial grove. A donation of any size would be greatly appreciated. Donors will be invited to join Bob's family when the tree is added to the grove.

    We did it! Thanks to everyone who helped us get the funds needed to reserve a tree in the memorial grove. It feels extra special that the Armstrong family made our final gift. I like to imagine these guys are sitting around telling war stories from their adventures together. We'll be scheduling a gathering at his tree in the Fall and will share out information at that time. THANK YOU AGAIN!

    It's 7pm on Day 2 and we are at 75% to the $1500 goal. Wow... that's all I can say. Your generosity is really touching. This photo is of our family from the early 2000's at the Bay House. Grandpa had a special nack for making each of us feel special and loved. He also had a strong love of nature. Honoring him with a tree that will grow, live on and offer natural beauty to future "rocket scientists" feels like a fitting tribute. Thank you for helping make this a reality.

    In less than two days, we are over 2/3rds of the way to funding Grandpa's tree. The generosity of strangers, colleagues, friends and family is overwhelming. Thank you! Here's another favorite picture of Grandpa is in his Air Force uniform.

    This is a great project to honor an even greater man. Wish I could have met him and heard his stories. Much love, AV
