2. A Special Message from Dean Kamen
Hello Teams! Great news!

Wow…think about it…twice the revenue at half the cost!
To boost sales, you can even set your own price on your free bulbs. This is a tremendous opportunity to help fund your team activities, so I urge you to take advantage of it.
But you must act soon! This offer ends November 30 and will not be repeated.
