Our #GivingTuesday Goal
In 2017 we raised almost $3,200 on #GivingTuesday. That was great for our first year, but this year we’re going all out. Our goal is to raise $6,500. With that money, we plan to purchase:
We desperately need to replace the BBPI’s only old and failing computer!
3 field-quality tablet computers
These are “must haves” to help bring our field work into the 21st century!
Educational tools and supplies
We’ve done well with what we have so far, but it’s long past time that we purchase the staples that every paleo-outreach organization MUST have, like a T. rex tooth cast, dinosaur and Ice Age animal models, Megalodon tooth, and more!
Stayed tuned! When we reach our goal on #GivingTuesday we’ll announce our Stretch Goals here.
So how do we get there??
