Baltimore Hacker Space is Crowdfunding
This non-profit technology educational facility is home to many great projects. Projects that people can’t work on at home ( not everyone has a garage). It has been member funded in the past and provided tools and training for anyone wanting to build something special. Their expenses recently went up. Here is what happened in their words. “Recently, our landlord “discovered” a number water bills that he’d missed over the past two years, and he’s passing that expense on to us. So we’ve run the numbers, and our $5,000 goal will keep us financially stable and allow us to focus on community outreach for the next two years. As a 501(c)3 charity, we work to promote growth and learning in our community by providing people a place to learn and work in a positive and collaborative environment. We are sustained by our membership dues. However, we do open up all of our classes and events to non-members. We try to provide at least 2-3 days per week where non-members can come in and work with our facilities.”
It’s all about helping a community resource stay a community resource. You can sponsor a go-cart. You can get T-shirts and even book some time in the shop to work on your ideas. You can have a storm trooper visit you or even pick up a years membership.

It’s already a winner at half way to their goal. It’s safer than a standard skateboard. It is a child sized board that is wide and more stable. The wheel is lower in the center and it better for a child who wants to sit or lay down on the board. The boards come in natural wood, white board or chalk board. They can design their board over and over again. Jordan is not new at this, he is experienced in creating skateboard that people love. Now it’s time to go into production and manufacturing.
Purpose boards are back in the news with their new venture that is a SAFE LONGBOARD for kids!

Maurice Watts is the owner of MAGNIFISCENTZ, an oil fragrances business. He wants to help teach young people how to have a business. He wants to create starter kits for them to begin and learn with. He will mentor them while they learn to focus on their business. Here’s what Maurice had to say about his Crowdfunding project.” Donations are needed to purchase a massive stock of oil fragrances which will be used to produce starter kits set for the starter programs, and a larger building to stock product, and to setup conference rooms to meet with young people to explain the business and starter program. All donations are very much appreciated.”
