  • Believe in Tomorrow National Childrens Foundation
    Since 1986, Believe In Tomorrow has supplied overnight lodgings for more than 560,000 families during a child's medical crisis. The organization’s respite-housing program sends families to a beach or mountainside location for a three-day weekend stay at one of five Maryland facilities. These calming retreats offer a vacation-like experience for families who might not otherwise be able to afford a getaway due to overwhelming medical expenses. During their stays, families can re-create the atmosphere of normal family life while taking a break from the stress of hospital visits and medical emergencies.

  • Howard County Education Association
    Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

An indoor gallery sweeps adventurers through a collection of exhibits highlighting Maryland's local biomes, guiding visitors through an interactive box-turtle habitat and a darkened room echoing with the sounds of nocturnal animals such as owls and infomercial hosts.

  • Christopher O’Riley
    Part of the Baltimore Jewish Community Center, the Gordon Center for Performing Arts takes a broad view of what Jewish culture means. It might mean a dance performance from an Israeli choreographer, a concert of the music of Felix Mendelssohn, or a modern klezmer-band performance. The venue was built to suit an eclectic array of art forms, including film?its movie screen is among the largest in the state. The 550-seat concert hall itself, however, has an intimate feel. It's only 18 rows deep, with clear sight lines from every seat in the house. That's not all that makes it a welcoming place to catch a show: there's also the free, well-lit parking lot, the fully handicap-accessible auditorium, and an RF audio system for the hearing impaired.

  • Jones Falls Community
    The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 5 or 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
