Link to the crowdfunding campaign page in English:

https://mesenaatti.me/en/panssarimuseon-tankkikatos/

 

A couple of articles  written about the topic from Yleisradio - Finnish National Broadcasting Service (sadly only in Finnish)

 

Current campaign

An article about a campaign attempt a year ago, which failed..:arta:

http://yle.fi/uutiset/panssarimuseon_kansalaiskerays_tokkii_eika_katosrahaa_kerry__vaunujen_ulkoruokintakausi_on_kestanyt_jo_50_vuotta/7962719

 

 

Basically these awesome tanks and vehicle  have been rusting away exposed to the elements for over 50 years now, in the otherwise great but inadequately funded Finnish Armoured Museum in Parola. Please consider helping them out and, at the very least, create some buzz about this so that Wargaming will take notice!

 

I have actually spoken about this three years ago with Richard "The Challenger" Cutland, who was hosting a Wargaming community event at the museum, who already then expressed concerns about the likes of super-rare tanks like the T-50, slowly crumbling away with no shelter to protect it. 

 

So please, share the knowledge and help the Finnish Armoured Museum to fulfill the campaign!

Good luck!

Very worthy cause.

 

Wg has helped uk museum so much,

I imagine the same sort of sponsorship in finland, would go a massive way, to saving history in the skin.

 

Not sure if finland, handing russians their arse, is wanted to be remembered by some.

Hey mate.

 

I've shared this on my blog: https://thedailyboun...m-crowdfunding/

 

Also raised awareness to Rita and Jingles and a few other people. Lets see if we can make loads noise and help out :D
