Help me go to NASA!

I got this EXTREMELY AWESOME email in my inbox today:
You are confirmed to attend the NASA Tweetup in conjunction with the last flight of space shuttle Atlantis, STS-135. The NASA Tweetup is Tuesday, July 19. You'll find details about the event below. Please read the information carefully. We look forward to seeing you on the 19th!

YAY! Awesome!  I get to go to the Johnson Space Station in Houston, check out Mission Control and use the flight simulator that the astronauts train on, and I get to photograph, tweet and blog about it!

There's one issue: funds.  It's short notice and I just don't have them.  So, I've decided to put myself out there and ask for sponsors.  I know it's a long shot, but I'm hoping there is a cool company (or companies) that have some discretionary funds (I'll need about $1000 to cover the travel and accommodation expenses) laying around to help me get to NASA!  In exchange, I will promote the hell out of your company both during the tweetup (which tons of people will be following) and before and after here in this blog and on my Twitter account.  I'll even wear a corporate logo.  If you are interested, please contact me at sharon@parentinggeekly.com.
