**Update 2018 May 4**
Renewable World won the donor poll! I'll be sending the money from the GoFundMe to them via Western Union.

Check them out here - https://www.renewable-world.org

And here's the delivery video as well (with a credit to all the donors) -  https://youtu.be/VKcHYAi9xYc

Thanks, everyone!

Tesla is going to match the cost of the couch so all the funds can go to charity! Voting for which charity is underway with the donors.

Stay tuned on my youtube channel for an update once we choose a charity and deliver the couch! https://teslanomics.co/yt

**Update 2018 Apr 18**

Thanks for all the messages and support everyone! This really took off. Obviously we've raised far more than is necessary so I'll be ending the campaign this Friday (Apr 20) and working with Tesla to figure out the next steps.

If you're a fan of Elon and Tesla I'd invite you to check out my YouTube channel where I explore sustiainable tech and how it's changing our world. Elon and Tesla are frequent topics. More here - https://teslanomics.co/yt

Elon Musk is transforming our world to run on sustainable energy and use sustainable forms of transportation. Lately, he's been sleeping at the Fremont factory in an effort to improve Model 3 production.

This is the couch he is sleeping on 

As a community, we cannot let this stand. Let's band together to buy Elon a new couch to sleep on!

*if he doesn't accept our donation via twitter reply or other means we'll donate it to a charity

Here is the video where I launched the campaign:



Here is the plan to deliver the couch to Elon:

1 - Contact him via twitter
2 - If he replies with "yes" I'll reach out to Tesla directly
3 - We collectively vote on which couch to order, will setup a poll here or elsewhere if that's not possible
4 - I'll order the couch and ship to them
5 - If allowed I'll fly up there to hand deliver and film the experience

If Elon nor Tesla reply via twitter we'll give it 3 days after we hit our goal and choose a charity to donate the money to. I'll post some options and then we can vote again to decide. 

Thanks for making this a reality everyone! If you have quesitons please do not hesitate to contact me here or on twitter via DM (@teslanomicsco)

Thanks,
Ben

We did it! On Tuesday I delivered the couch to Elon at Fremont. Check out the vlog here for more info - https://youtu.be/VKcHYAi9xYc

The charity that won the poll is Renewable World. Check them out here - https://www.renewable-world.org

And BIG NEWS! Elon is matching the entire amount we raised so your donations plus the $1,500 from Tesla Club Sweden means that over $18K is going to charity!

Also big thanks to Wayfair for donating the couch so all the money can go to charity. The internet is awesome and so are you!

Stay tuned, this is just the beginning...

Thanks to everyone that donated to this, we're going to put the money to good use! I've got tons of recommendations on twitter so stay tuned for the final charity. I still haven't got an official response from Tesla but was told they would have something for me Friday. I'll reach out again on Monday but in any event plan on sharing the results on Friday.

Cheers!
Ben
