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:

  • 1 computer

    • 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!

STRetch Goals

Stayed tuned! When we reach our goal on #GivingTuesday we’ll announce our Stretch Goals here.

So how do we get there??
