Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are in the books, it’s Giving Tuesday.
The day of donating and benevolence happens around the world. For those looking to give back locally, here are a handful of campaigns from within the Baltimore tech community. Though they’re timed around this one day, nonprofits are always accepting donations.
The Baltimore Under Ground Science Space runs a community science lab in Highlandtown. The campaign supports 2019 registration for the Baltimore BioCrew, a group of high school students tapping into bioengineering to solve social problems. They’ve taken on challenges like cleaning plastic in the Baltimore harbor.
It's #GivingTuesday! After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, what are your plans today for giving back? Consider supporting BUGSS and the Baltimore BioCrew!
