Bicycles for HumanityBicycles for Humanity is a world wide organisation focused on making a difference through the re-distribution of dis-used bikes.
We take that old bike from the back of your garage and give it a new life where it will make a fundamental and life changing difference - in some of the poorest nations in the world.
Right now, Bicycles for Humanity, Melbourne is raising funds to send our first shipping container of bikes to Namibia where they will benefit a community for many years to come.
Your bike will be sent to Namibia where our partner BEN Namibia recieves it. The shipping container becomes a Bicycle Empowerment Centre - a shipping container bike workshop. Clever, huh ? It will provide skills training, business opportunities and employment for the community in which it is placed. Your bike will remove the tyranny of distance for the HIV aids remote care workers, amongst others, to whom the bicycles are distributed.
Here's Where You Come In
There are few charity initiatives that are so transparent and practical as this one. We love bikes and the huge difference they can make - help us get the first 400 to Africa and we'll be telling you the whole story right here. We currently need to raise around $10,000 to get the first container of bikes on its way. We need your help.
There's a number of ways you can support us right now.
-:- Donate - We're currently offering a great solution to your gift problems. Buy them a bike !..and send it to Africa. Donate to send a whole bike or just a part and you'll get a great e-card to send to show you care not just for them but for the greater good as well.
-:- Go Shopping - Visit either www.kittyfisher.com.au for some gorgeous designer jewellery or www.cycling-secrets.com for cycling training e-books. Both these retailers are supporting our cause through donating some of their revenue.
-:- Register your interest - sign up on the right. You've got the bike, we've got the shipping container and the place to send it where it'll changes lives. We'll keep you posted on everything that's going on and where to donate your bike.
-:- Tell everyone you know. Send them here. All attention is good attention - so be vocal.
