I ran across an item on Ebay as I was checking out the out-and-out greedfest of STS 107 merchandise. One seller says he will donate a portion of the sales to a fund for the Children of the Columbia crew. If its true I'd like to contribute and direct others in that direction.

COLUMBIA SCHOLORSHIP FUND
STERLING BANK
P.O. BOX 40333
HOUSTON, TEXAS 77240

Does anyone know for sure?

Thanks,
Cliff

Interesting. I don't know if that one is legit, but I do know (from the attached link to a cnn article) that the Challenger Scholarship Fund, which was never de-activated, will go back into full fundraising again to help the children of STS-107's crew.

I note that no PO Box had been set yet.

Yes, this is legit -- the fund was started by the Houston Chronicle and a local TV station: http://www.collectspace.com/archive/archive-0203.html#0202031222
