Friends, we are fortunate to have everything that we could possibly want -- wonderful family and friends, good health, warm shelter, plentiful food, and so much fun and adventure. In lieu of gifts, we ask that you donate to the charity of your choice. One we recommend is World Bicycle Relief.
World Bicycle Relief mobilizes people through The Power of Bicycles. We are committed to helping people conquer the challenge of distance, achieve independence and thrive. For many people in rural regions of developing countries, poverty is a daily reality. In areas where walking is the only mode of transport, a Buffalo Bicycle offers the real and immediate benefit of reliable access to essential goods and services. Powered by the remarkable human spirit, bicycles are a catalyst to possibilities.Our innovative model, combining philanthropic distributions with social enterprise sales, is the backbone on which we deliver greater efficiencies of scale, distribute more bicycles per donation and generate deeper impact where we work.
