As part of a class project I am doing through the Harvard Extension, I am supporting World Bicycle Relief, an organization providing access to independence and livelihood through The Power of Bicycles, with a personal fundraiser. I am trying to raise $500 by April 29. The money raised through my fundraiser helps to provide robust bicycles to students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs in rural Africa; connecting them with education, healthcare and economic opportunities. I nor Harvard get any money out of this, as it all goes to WorldBicycleRelief.org.
World Bicycle Relief is currently working to provide 50,000 bicycles to students (70% girls), teachers and educational workers in rural Zambia and Zimbabwe. For $134 we can provide a World Bicycle Relief bicycle to a student in need.
Every donation helps, from as little as $10. Every penny of your donation goes 100% to World Bicycle Relief. You can also send a check directly to World Bicycle Relief.org if you prefer.
We are also interested in any efforts others may do to help us increase awareness around this very worthwhile charity. I would be interested in anything you do to support this group. So, if you decide to support in a different way than donating to this site, please let me know. It's all good, as it all goes to the same place in the end.
Thanks for your support!
