Currently on the ACAM front page:
ACAM has been approached by a private collector with an offer to purchase games from his collection. The games being offered are pieces we do not have in our collection: Space Dungeon, Mad Planets, Solar Fox, Disc of Tron and Black Widow. The agreed price is $3,650 of which we have already received $1,810 in donations leaving a balance of $1,840. We have until Sunday, January 15th to raise the remaining amount and would appreciate your help in obtaining these pieces for the museum. Donations can be made via the ChipIn widget.
Of the $1,840 they need they have raised $1,250 so far, leaving just $590 to raise by January 15, 2012. The ChipIn widget on their front page uses PayPal for payment processing. You do not have to have a PayPal account; you can use a credit card.
Let's help push 'em over the top. It'll be worth it just to see them get Space Dungeon alone. The other four are somewhat hard to come by these days, but a working Space Dungeon is practically Bigfoot.
UPDATE #1: Only $85 to go, thanks to the five anonymous contributors who chipped in a combined $505 today!
UPDATE #2: Well that didn't take long! Two more contributions in the last ten hours and the goal has been met. Major thanks to everyone who chipped in to preserve five more classic arcade games!
REMINDER!: Forgot to mention... The American Classic Arcade Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your donations to them are tax deductible. So if you plan on itemizing your 2011 return be sure to keep your donation receipt!
