This fundraiser is the first step in getting my non-profit started. I have devoted much of my life focusing on helping others and bicycling, and I am ready to give and devote my time even more. I am in the process of simplifying my life, paying down debt, and the like; alas, trading in my "day job" for my "dream job" is a reality I am ready for. This is where you, my supporter, come into play.

The more money donated, the more hours I can contribute to helping everyday deserving people.

Consider the young family stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire. No problem -- I don't have to worry about being fired for being late, and can replace AND change the tire for them.

Consider the elderly couple at the grocery store. Got it covered. Not only will the cost of their bill be lowered (I will be their greatest coupon savings to date), but I will load their cart and car for them.

These are only two common and everyday examples, but the possibilities and my desire to help are endless!

So why did I mention bikes?

Well, I want to start a mobile bicycle repair shop which hosts clinics for kids and adults. My mobile bicycle repair shop will promote a bike-positive and pay-it-forward lifestyle: basic bike repair, commuting basics, road safety, and helping those who cannnot afford a bike earn one by performing repairs in a point based repair system (teaching them a trade and responsibility in the process). I also plan to use this mobile shop to assist existing local bike-centric charities helping them with their outreach to our community and to have a repair station at charity and benefit rides. I have also been working with various with vendors and shops to discuss getting parts at discounted prices once this goes live.

A couple of the first steps are getting the paper work filed to become legitimate and find a vehicle that is big enough to act as a mobile shop and meets safety needs. Being more than just a pretty face, I am handy with tools and not looking for a new and expensive vehicle, but just something that has a lot of life left in it under the hand of a skillful Jack of All Trades (that's me!).
