Bikes for the World is a non-profit organization that takes pretty much any kind of bike – old, new, road bike, mountain bike, adult’s bike, kid’s bike, whatever – and donates them to people in developing countries.
WHY you should do this:
- You have a bike in your garage/basement/shed that you never ride.
- It’s a great time to be honest about your life priorities, pare down the way you live and get rid of possessions you never use!
- Other people in the world likely need your old bike more than you do.
- Your donation is tax-deductible AND it will make you feel good!
Saturday, June 27th, 2009 – donating only takes 5 minutes!
Headquarters Park – 2224 E NC Hwy 54 in Durham, NC 27713
(located in the RTP on Hwy 54, between Hwy 55 and Alston)
Simply bring your bike to this event and get a receipt. Bikes for the World also suggests a $10 per bike donation to help defray the cost of getting the bikes to quality programs overseas.
NEED HELP? If you don’t have a way to transport your old bike to this event, just let Crystal know and she will happily assist you!
