Giving 3

When I found the World Bicycle Relief organization last year, I was thrilled!  After being in Africa, we knew exactly how valuable a bike could be and we'd seen lots of them being used in very inventive ways.  Giving a person a bicycle means that they can get to school quickly, loads can be carried easily, jobs can be taken further away and completed and they have a whole new-found mobility.  For only $134 you can help a girl in Zimbabwe get to school every day!   I am so, so happy to be able to give to an organization that is impacting people in such a positive way with a very simple vehicle, for just a few dollars.   Ride on!!

  1. What a really practical way to help change lives. I had never heard of them, but thinkign about it, bicycles make perfect sense!

  2. Wow, I have never heard of them either. What an awesome way to give something so practical and useful. I wonder if they have something like this in Asia? Thanks so much for sharing this Crystal!

  3. What an awesome idea! I love this!
