Save the typewriter man

Follow this link for an update on the typewriter tech in Amherst, Mass.

The efforts on his behalf have raised $4500, which is better than I expected, but the clock is ticking.

"Anyone wishing to help should make out checks to TMI or Typewriter Man Initiative and send them or bring them to Northampton Cooperative Bank, P.O. Box 550, Amherst, MA 01004." Type out a check right now, or if you prefer, you can PayPal the money to me ( and I promise to write a check for the amount.


  1. Done! Great news that so much has been raised already; I'm confident that with the new story in the paper they'll be able to come up with the 6k.

  3. Thanks, Adwoa! I've already received two payments and written two checks. If we all pass the news along to potentially interested people, and promptly do whatever we feel is fair, I think he will be able to pay his back rent. (And then if UMass Amherst students hear about him and get interested in typewriters, he will have a better income!)

  4. I didn't think a check would get there in time so I sent you a payment. It's not much but hey it's more than I paid for all three typewriters last saturday!

  5. Thanks, notagain!

    ... and students at Amherst College too! (Adwoa's alma mater.)
