Project370: The Costs
Project370 offers, we believe, the most cost-effective solution to the problem of locating flight MH370.
As this is a volunteer initiative with minimal costs, virtually every dollar raised will actually go towards the search at sea.
All operating costs of the foundation to date have been covered by foundation volunteers digging into their own pockets (If there is anyone out there who wants to fund some of these operating costs - or even buy us a meal or two on the odd occasion - you are welcome to get in touch!)
So? How much do we need to feed the boats, the crews and the high-tech equipment for the two phases of our search?
Phase one: US 4 million - Yes, indeed, Only US$4 million.
Phase Two: US$ 2.5 million (perhaps less as we will be pretty sure of the area to which to sail...) This figure will be updated on the completion of Phase One.
This needs only 4 000 planetary citizens to give us US$ 1 000 each. Or, of course, a few thousand more to give smaller amounts.
Every donation - even as little as US1.00 - will contribute towards the success of this project.
When taken in context - especially of the more than US$ 200 million already spent on the search - this is a really small additional commitment from the citizens of the world towards ensuring the safety of future airline flights and bringing peace of mind to the relatives of the passengers of flight MH370.
