שלום רב,
 
 
 
 
 
אני פונה אליכם בבקשה לשקול לתרום לתל אביב מייקרס, מעבדה חברתית חינמית הנמצאת בדרום תל אביב, הפתוחה לציבור הרחב ומנגישה חינוך לטכנולוגיה לכולם – ילדים, צעיריום, הורים , פנסיוניירים, וקהילות מוחלשות. בתאמ'י יש אוסף עשיר של ציוד לעיבוד מתכת, עיבוד עץ וכן ישנו ציוד אלקטרוני מתקדם ואנשים המתמחים בכל אותם תחומים.
 
 
 
בנוסף, מתקיימות בת'אמי פעילויות אשר רובן נערכות ללא עלות, הכוללות הרצאות, מפגשים וסדנאות בתחומים רבים כגון: קוד פתוח, תיקון אופניים, מחשבים זעירים, בניית רובוטים, תפירת תיקים, אפייה, ביולוגיה ועוד.
 
 
 
 
 
המקום מיועד למייקרים (אנשים הבונים בעצמם ציוד מגוון כגון אופניים, כלי מוזיקה ומוצרי אלקטרוניקה), וכן לאומנים, נגרים, אלקטרונאים, בוני רובוטים, מתכנתים, וכל מי שמעוניין ללמוד לבנות ציוד כזה, לעבוד או לשוחח.
 
 
 
 
 
חלק נכבד מהפעילויות מיועד לילדים הבאים לסדנאות עם הוריהם, פנסיונרים הבאים לקחת חלק בפרויקטים ולחלוק את הידע שלהם עם הקהילה, ופרילנסרים הבאים לעבוד במקום עם ויפי ועוד אנשים עם שלל התמחויות.
 
 
 
 
 
העיקרון המנחה אותנו הינו הנגשת החלל לקהילה, ולפיכך איננו גובים תשלום עבור הכניסה והשימוש בציוד. על מנת לממן את הפעילות, כל אחד מהמשתמשים הקבועים המעוניינים בכך משלמים בהתנדבות דמי חבר חודשיים.
 
 
 
לאחרונה נדחתה בקשתנו לקבל הקלה בדמי הארנונה. מכיוון שיש במקום מחרטה (המיועדת לשימוש הקהילה ולא לשימוש עיסקי), מוגדר המקום על ידי העיריה כבית מלאכה, דבר הממקם אותנו בקטגורית הארנונה הגבוהה ביותר. בנוסף, בקשתנו לקבל סטטוס של מוסד ללא מטרת רווח נדחתה גם היא.
 
 
 
 
 
העלות הגבוהה של הארנונה גרמה לנו להיקלע להוצאות כספיות גבוהות אשר דמי החבר החודשיים אינם יכולים לממן. על מנת שנוכל להשאר את המקום פתוח לשימוש הקהילה, אני פונה אליכם בבקשה לתרום למקום שמהווה בין בית חם לספרית עשה-זאת-בעצמך.
 
 
 
 
 
תודה רבה על זמנכם ותשומת ליבכם.

Hello,
 
 
 
I am writing on behalf of Tel Aviv Makers , a free community makerspace in south Tel Aviv. TAMI is open to the public at large, and provides a forum for building, working, and technical education for everyone - children,parents, pensioners, freelancers, and disempowered communities. The space contains a large collection of equipment for metalwork, woodwork, electronics, computers, and people with knowledge in these disciplines.
 
 
 
There are a number of organized activities at TAMI most of which do not require fees, including lectures, meetings and workshops in various fields: open source software, hardware, bicycle repair, robotics, sewing, baking, DIY biology and more.
 
 
 
The space is dedicated to do-it-yourselfers - makers, carpenters, instrument buiders, electronics buffs, programmers, artists, and anyone who wants to learn any of these fields, to work independently or in groups, or to consult.
 
 
 
Kids come for workshops with their parents, pensioners come to do projects and give of their knowledge to the community, and freelancers come to work in a space with free wifi and other people having a wide range of experience and specialties.
 
The guiding principle of the space is accessibility to the community, and therefore we do not charge any entrance or other fees (excluding some workshops covering their materials).
 
 
 
To cover rent, utilities and proerty tax (in Israel this is paid by renters and not owners…) some of the members pay a voluntary monthly membership fee.
 
  
Recently our long-standing request for a property tax reduction was denied. Since we have a lathe, we're catgorized as a mechanical workshop by the city, which puts us in the highest possible property tax bracket. A request for NGO status was also denied by the authorities.
 
The high arnona and lack of tax reduction has put us into a hard position financially which the member contriubions can’t cover.
 
I therefore am asking for your help to keep TAMI alive by contributing.
 
Thanks for you time,
 
  
Jeremy Rutman etc etc
