Unless you've been under a rock recently, you know that Baltimore is in a serious state right now. Riots over the death of a young male at the hands of police have caused massive amounts of damage to the city that the Ravens call home. You've likely also seen Ray Lewis' passionate plea to rioters and protesters to do things in a more organized and civilized way.

Ray Lewis was able to step up and miss the NFL Draft to be with his city, but there is no doubt that Baltimore could use more help in that department. Cut to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan calling on Ravens players to help unite the city of Baltimore.

While the Governor could arguably do more than a couple of Twitter shoutouts, it is admirable that the city and Maryland is trying it's best to fight back in the face of senseless violence and destruction. After launching #MDUnites on Twitter, the Governor was happy to say that more than 120 people had volunteered to help.

If you want to get out there and help Baltimore, go to the website that the Governor set up and offer your support in however you can.
