Why World Bicycle Relief

So I wanted to talk a little bit about World Bicycle Relief and why they are such a great and worthy cause.  The first thing is their education program.  Kids have a hard time getting to class everyday because it is so far away and they have to do chores before they leave.  Imagine doing chores for an hour or so, then walking three to five miles, and then learning algebra!

There is a great documentary called With My Own Two Wheels that shows how powerful adding a bicycle to this equation is:

WBR also has programs for healthcare givers and social enterprises.  So go to their site and check them out, or just click on the button at the right of this page to donate to WBR.  And if you are looking to give a Christmas donation, there is a group of board members and other folks at WBR willing to match donations for the entire month of December, so now would be a good time to donate.
