Happy people sitting at tables

The Baltimore chapter of Make a Mark, a 12-hour design and development marathon benefiting local humanitarian causes, will hold their inaugural event tomorrow, Saturday, April 14, 2018 at City Garage. During the event, nearly 45 of Baltimore’s best designers, developers, filmmakers, and illustrators will collaborate to provide complimentary services for 13 of our city’s impactful nonprofit organizations. 

Saturday’s event will be the culmination of months of planning and preparation. Baltimore Make a Mark committee members selected nonprofit and maker participants from dozens of applications, formed maker teams, and facilitated planning meetings to introduce each nonprofit’s project. During the 12-hour make-a-thon, the maker teams will collaborate to create a design, marketing, or technology project for their designated nonprofit. 

Nonprofits participating in the event include Baltimore Rock Opera Society, Baltimore Teacher Supply Swap, BeeMore, Hālau O ‘Aulani, Holistic Life Foundation, Icing Smiles, Mikey’s Miracle Foundation, PIVOT, Project Beautify You, Touching Young Lives, Trash Free Maryland, Volunteering Untapped, and WTMD.

In addition to the chapter in Baltimore, Make a Mark hosts events in Asheville, North Carolina; Charlotte, North Carolina; Chattanooga, Tennessee; New York, NY; San Francisco, CA; Roanoke-Blacksburg, VA; and Brussels, Belgium. For more information about Make a Mark, visit www.letsmakeamark.org
