Ben Derico wrote -Bikes for Books is a fundraiser bike ride from Madrid to Valencia, Spain that will take place from April 2-7, 2012. Bikes for Books has 2 simple goals:
1. To help film-maker Ben Derico raise enough funds to cover his flight costs from Madrid to Kampala, Uganda, where he will be working on a documentary this coming July about non-for-profit organization Pangea Educational Development. Pangea, or PED for short, is dedicated to empowering communities by helping create sustainable schools throughout underprivileged areas in Uganda.
2. Our second goal is to create a substantial donation, about $4000 to help PED cover some of their necessary costs for their 2012 Summer Volunteer Program.
Kind people, like yourself, can sponsor a rider or make pledges to the general cause. We appreciate all of your help.
