Space Apps Torontonians,

In the last two years, Space Apps Toronto has brought together hundreds of hackers, designers, youths, and space enthusiasts to develop incredible solutions to NASA's real-world problems. At the Royal Ontario Museum in 2013, we created the foundation for this community and showed the world how much enthusiasm and talent that Toronto has to offer. At the Ontario Science Centre in 2014, we raised the bar for the event, enjoyed representation from NASA, and celebrated when a project from our event won Best Use of Data globally.

Our little event has had an awesome impact on the Toronto community, and we've seen incredible stories of success over the last couple years. These stories have inspired those of us involved in organizing the event to work hard at crafting awesome experiences for all participants.

Unfortunately, due to the immense amount of planning involved in bringing an event like Space Apps Toronto together, our organizers don't feel as though we'll be able to bring the community the event that it deserves for 2015.

As such, we're asking the community to help us find support for the 2015 event. In the last two years, the volunteer team behind Space Apps has created an immense amount of resources, assets, and logistics. But what it really needs is someone who can handle the partnerships, sponsorship, press, and communications effectively, and put their full effort into it.

If you or someone you know is interested in picking up the Space Apps Toronto flag and taking it further for the 2015 event, James would love to talk to them about what it would look like, and work with them to sustain the momentum we've built. We're really depending on you, the community, to help us find the support we need, and also look to you for any comments, suggestions, or feedback. We encourage anyone interested to email James at james@thephuse.com.

Thank you for all that you've done for us, and for the support you've given. We're looking forward to seeing what comes out of Space Apps 2015, and hope to see you participate in the 2015 event.

Keep reaching for the stars,

James Costa
