Call for Raptor hands! Anyone with a 3D printer, we need your help to get as many hands printed at 135% and delivered to Baltimore by May 1st. We're holding a workshop at the KID Museum in Bethesda, MD where US and Canadian Scouts will be assembling the hands. The goal of the May 2nd workshop is to train the visiting Canadian scouts how to assemble the hands so they can train other Canadian scouts how to recreate this project when they go back home.
We also need 50 hands for a retreat on June 13th. At this event we'll be training Baltimore Scouts who are going to the World Jamboree in Japan this summer, so that they can take this project to our sister city to create a spin off group to recreate our efforts in Kawasaki.
Your help last time was able to fit hundreds of hands to kids born without hands locally, and as far away as Barcelona. We put notes in each hand, and the kids loved them.

And here is the address to mail them:

If you don't have a 3D printer yet, you can donate money too. $30 covers the cost for the printing and the hardware to give a prosthetic hand to a child born without one. Stay tuned for a donation link. #3dprinting
