Buy a Brick To Raise the Tesla Museum

The group actually received $1 million from Tesla Motors chief Elon Musk along with the promise to also install a Tesla supercharger near the building after it’s done.

Still, that’s only half of what the project will gulp in, reason why another Indiegogo campaign was started. This time in a more creative way - selling bricks.Bricks for a noble cause
No, you’re going to end up with a brick in you hands after donating for the cause, because that wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, each donor will have his/her own brick engraved with a personal message that will be used in the museum’s construction.

There are three different brick sizes coming at different prices that will enable you to engrave a message according to the brick’s size - longer or shorter. The goal of the project has almost been reached, yet you still have 44 days left to literally be part of the Nikola Tesla museum.

After the campaign is over, the nonprofit organization will contact each donor to ask about the message their brick will be engraved with, with the first of them starting to be installed in the spring of 2015.
