88 Bikes

The 88Bikes Foundation has a very simple goal: to provide a sustainable, joyful, empowering form of transportation to young people in developing countries, in situations where these children have been challenged to be their own heroes due to war, conflict, poverty, disease, or other regional hardships.

If you donate $88 (the cost for a new bike) the child who gets the bike gets a photo of you and you, in turn, get a photo of the child with the new bike. Check out this inspirational video from CBS news.

  1. This is an awesome grassroots program! Run by three people across the Nation yet it still has a prodominantly local northwest following. Volunteers, donations, and general support will all help programs like this succeed.
    Enjoy the ride...
