For the last two years we've been financing :bgt out of our own pockets and relying on donations from the wider community. We've been able to do some cool things like start a podcast and host a few events and a birthday party but we want to ramp things up in 2017. We're trying to raise £30,000 so that we can make technology accessible to more black girls and women and so that we can really make an impact on the industry. Every little helps and we wouldn't be able to keep going without the help from all of our donars so far.
Here are some of the things we'll be doing with the money:
This is just what we'll be using some of the money for, the funds will also go towards admin fees and general running of the company. We want to keep :bgt free for those who need it most, help us do that by donating today.
