To all of our friends and fa…
To all of our friends and family,
The sun was shining (but not too much), the breezes were blowing, the roads were flat (mostly), and the collective spirit of 2,500 cyclists who joined us on Saturday for the 75-mile Ride to Montauk (a few hardy ones started at an earlier point and did 108 miles) made it a marvelous day. We finished in just over 5 hours (in the saddle, plus another 1.25 hours at various rest stops), an hour faster than we'd anticipated.

In 5 hours on a bike, you get a lot of time to think (in addition to watching for the occasional pothole and traffic). For both of us, it was a very satisfying opportunity to think of all the wonderful friends and family who supported us and Trickle Up on Saturday. And, with both of us having met many Trickle Up participants in poor villages around the world, it also was a time to reflect on their lives, how Trickle Up helps them create new futures for their families, and the very powerful connection that exists among all of us. On their behalf, we thank you immensely.

We look forward to doing this ride again next year...we hope for the 108-mile version.

Fondly,
Julie & Bill

Dear Ann, Thanks to friends …
Dear Ann,
Thanks to friends like you, we've raised about $5,400 for Trickle Up in just a few days. More to come!

What will $5,400 accomplish? It is enough to provide Trickle Up seed capital grants to about 50 women so they can start businesses that will generate income, savings and confidence about the future. With each Trickle Up business benefitting an average of 5 people, that's about 250 people who face brighter futures, thanks to you and our other friends and family.

Gratefully,
Bill & Julie
