Community Supporter Points
As part of the Mars One community, you will receive points that represent the degree of your support for Mars One’s mission. Mars One implemented supporter points in order to provide our community members with an opportunity to show how much they support Mars One. These points will be added to your account after you claim them, but you can choose to keep them private, so they will not be shown on your public profile.
The calculation of the supporter points works as follows. You will receive:
- 1 point for every dollar spent on merchandise from our online store
- 2 points for every dollar spent by making a one-time donation
- 3 points for every dollar spent by making a monthly donation
- 2 points for every dollar spent by contributing to a Mars One crowdfunding campaign
- 100 points when you have successfully entered the Mars One astronaut selection program as an applicant in 2013
In order to express gratitude towards the supporters for their support, Mars One has implemented cool rewards into the supporter points system! After a certain amount of points are claimed supporters will be able to unlock various rewards. The rewards are:
- After 300 points a supporter earns a hard copy thank you certificate
- After 1000 points a supporter earns a beautiful Mars One glass block
- After 3000 points a supporter can earn a signed Mars One T-Shirt
- After 10,000 points a supporter can earn a ticket to the Mars One event.
