    You'll get my experimental Tanzanian Astronaut potato salad recipe** and my photo eating potato salad in a homemade cardboard rocket ship. You'll also receive a 'thank you' on my tumblr and I will wish on the stars for your life to turn out awesome. (**Please note: This recipe is only experimental. The official recipe won't exist until there's a Tanzanian astronaut. Since I'm only 15, that may take me a few years. Or decades. Please be patient. I haven't even got armpit hair yet. )

    If all goes according to plan, you'll get invited to the greatest potato salad party in Tanzanian history when I lift off to space the very first time. (Please note: My delivery estimate for this reward may be a little optimistic since I'm a terrible estimator and I'm only 15. Sorry for any delays! Just have to get through puberty first. And college. And astronaut training. Thanks for your understanding & flexibility!)
