Mothership HackerMoms – First women’s hackerspace launches Kickstarter for moms and minimakers

Mothership HackerMoms. Karen writes in –

Mothership HackerMoms http://mothership.hackermoms.org gives moms the time and space to explore DIY art/design, craft, tech, business and all manners of creative expression — with childcare on site.  We are artists, makers, designers, writers, scientists, programers, educators, as well as mothers. Our non-profit hackerspace is located in Berkeley, CA.  We are the first women’s hackerspace – ever… and we don’t want to be the last.

We made a funny, moving Kickstarter video about creativity and motherhood that people (not just moms) seem to really like.  We have just 7 days left to reach our “stretch” goal to fund a DIY workshop, equipment and tools, a mini maker program and community outreach support. Our end date is right around the corner, Nov 18th.

We have big love for your site and your mission.  I hope you will support us by sharing/tweeting/fb our story. Thank you!
