The International Cryptozoology Museum, run by Loren Coleman, is in need of financial support or faces possible closing due to an IRS audit.
“The [IRS's] audit has gone to five or more levels of meetings and appeals, as I have attempted to explain what being a “cryptozoologist” is all about, that I do make my living this way, and that the museum is an essential part of the overall plan … To the IRS, the museum verges on being a hobby … and it needs more income (even if donations) to support itself … The museum has to make money, or it ceases to exist…”
To help Loren raise some additional money to cover the increased tax balance by January 12, BigfootMuseum.com has launched a Save the Museum support page. There, supporters are asked to take part in the ebay auctions. Either bid on items with proceeds going to the cause or list items for others to bid on.
