Elon Musk donates $1 Million to The Oatmeal's Nikola Tesla Museum project
J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
As some of you may know, I recently published a cartoonist's review of my Tesla Model S. In the second half of the review, I asked Elon Musk to donate toward the completion of a Nikola Tesla Museum, a project I've been working on since 2012.
Within a few hours of posting my review, Elon Musk tweeted that he'd be happy to help. Earlier this week I got to speak to the man directly, and he promised two things.
1. He's going to build a Tesla Supercharger station in the parking lot of the museum.
2. He's donating $1 million dollars to the museum itself.
Elon Musk: from the deepest wells of my geeky little heart: thank you. This is amazing news. And it's Nikola Tesla's 158th birthday.
Happy Nikola Tesla Day. -The Oatmeal
I love that GRRM raises money for wolves and The Oatmeal raises money for Tesla.
Well played, everyone.
