    THANK YOU for your support. We'll post your name to our web site to acknowledge your contribution to the project and we'll keep you informed of the progress. *Note: added this reward level after launch as I noticed Kickstarter allows for $1 minimum pledge level anyway.

    "TWEET UP THANKS" - You may not be ready to get an ISS-Above - but you want to support the project anyway! Awwwww THANK YOU!!! Just know your acknowledgement is very much appreciated.

    You'll be recognized on our web site of course*. But we'll also have an ISS-Above device in Pasadena Tweet a message of thanks to you. The tweet will go out via our @ISSAboveYou twitter account when the space station passes within 750km (460m) of Pasadena in the order received.

    We'll start tweeting the thanks after the project is funded and it will carry on until we have thanked all of you who supported us at this level.

    *note: you can choose to remain anonymous if you wish.

    8GB SD CARD with ISS-Above code - pre-configured with your location details (latitude and longitude), timezone and custom ISS-Above tweet login so your device can join the world-wide network of devices sending a "Hi there" message to the Space Station when it passes nearby. This reward is perfect if you have a Raspberry Pi already or you just want to build one yourself perhaps with a different supported display device than the PiGlow or Ledborg (for instance the Blinkstick, ADAFRUIT LCD)
    *After the project is funded you will receive a survey where you will identify your location and your chosen display device. We'll configure the SD card with that information so you can get up and running with no further changes needed. SHIPPING EARLY APRIL
