Last year we published our second annual magazine supplement, Sarcochilus, Species and Hybrids, written by Jean-Allen Ikeson. Once again it was a huge success and we received many letters of praise. The 32-page, separately bound magazine became a "13th issue" for volume number 80 and mailed with the August issue of Orchids. We are especially pleased to report that most of the cost of producing the supplement was underwritten by small donations from the membership of the AOS. This spirit of cooperation enforced the power behind the concept of micropayments.

For 2012, we have an excellent thesis on the genus Cycnoches, written by George Carr, as our third magazine supplement. It is a thorough and well-researched paper written by an expert on this genus of orchids that are becoming increasingly popular. We know it will be a valued addition to this volume of Orchids. This year the supplement will mail with the September issue of Orchids and once again we appeal to the membership to make a small donation to help underwrite the cost of production. 

If each member of the AOS donates merely $2.00...two bucks...we will have enough to publish this special 32-page supplement and cover the increased cost of mailing with the regularly scheduled magazine. Two dollars is not even the cost of a cup of coffee. Please click the link to make a secure donation through *PayPal.
