The Hamilton Woodtype Museum is the coolest place in type world!

Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum

However, they are being forced to move out of the old Hamilton factory building that houses them and have not funds enough to do so. A minimum of $250,000 is needed to pack up the 30,000 sq. feet of printing history and move to a new home yet to be found. Please consider helping them by making a donation. If you’re working in the creative field get a membership for yourself and your co-workers, or suggest to your employer to give memberships this year for christmas. You can also contact the museum director Jim Moran for further information:

Donate via their official PayPal button above or this form. There is also an official press release.
