A video game museum needs YOUR help!

tl;dr

We are a non-profit video game museum that is trying to do a lot of good and needs a little bit of help to keep its doors open. If you would like to donate you may do so at http://themade.org/content/donate

The MADE (Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment) is a video game museum in Oakland, CA, and it needs your help to stay alive. In my opinion, since we have opened up in November of last year we have done a lot, such as:

  1. Allow the chance for kids to try old school games and learn the history about why they're awesome and why we need them still.
  2. Give them a chance to learn how to program and make video games with free lessons on Saturday mornings.
  3. We have interactive exhibits so everything is always playable and is played on its original hardware.
  4. We do fighting game tournaments, dance game parties, family events, and many other events.

But if you're reading this you must be thinking "you guys don't need any help, you guys sound alright," but you would be wrong. Since we are a non-profit we run off donations, we did a kick-starter last year  and it worked! That money was put to good use but it ran out about four months ago and we are now running on fumes. We need help raising money to just stay open until we start getting grant money, and anything you can contribute would be appreciated.

If you live in the San Francisco Bay area please visit us at: 610 16th St Oakland CA 94612 and visit us on the web at www.themade.org. You can also join us on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Museum-of-Art-and-Digital-Entertainment/151525434925109, follow the museum on Twitter @themade, and follow me @bayfightnight. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and if you choose to do so, supporting us!
