Help us give kids in Arizona's foster care system a great holiday.
Remember when you received your first bike? If you are like me, you remember the color, the shape and probably even the name. Many kids in foster care have never had their own bike. With this program we give them the joy of having their own bikes. For many it is not just the excitement, it is also a way to get to school or work. In the 10 years of our program, we have distributed more than 10,000 bikes and made this joy happen time and time again.
However, in these times of COVID-19, it is even more challenging for our program because we rely on volunteers to gather to refurbish all of our bikes! Despite the challenges, our mission is just as important as ever for the kids. They still need the joy of their first bike, the exercise that comes from having a bike, and maybe most important, to be like every other kid in the neighborhood. So like everyone around the world, we are changing our program for 2020!
To keep our volunteers safe, we are only going to give away new bikes this year. But we need your help to make this happen! If you can help, please purchase a bike for a kid in foster care and we will make sure it gets to them this holiday season! We have made an arrangement with the Huffy Corporation to get bikes at a discounted rate (probably cheaper than you could find them on sale!). Here is how it works:
Just click here and go to our "buy a bike for a kid" page and you can pick the size of bike for the age of the child you would like to buy. We will order it, build it and make sure it is delivered to a kid in foster care. It is that simple. You can change a life in less than 5 minutes!
So please join us and make the 2020 holidays memorable for kids in foster care ... it might just be their first ever new bike and a memory they will have for a lifetime!
