The Oatmeal's Tesla Fundraiser Blows Through $US1 Million Mark, No End In Sight

The Oatmeal sure knows how to raise money. The comic strip's founder Matthew Inman wanted to raise $US850,000 to help buy Nikola Tesla's old New York lab, and gave himself over a month to do it. In four days, the fundraiser hit its target and now that four more days have gone by, the campaign has blown through the million-dollar mark.

The project entitled "Let's Build A Goddamn Tesla Museum" hit its goal last week, and at the time of publication, funding is at $US1,122,228 with 34 days to go.
