In Africa, a bike, the simple two-wheeled object many of us take for granted, can transform a life. In fact, it can transform many lives. Each bike on average helps twenty people in Africa, which is why the site DoubleBikeMatch.org is so high up my list this holiday season for charitable donations. World Bicycle Relief gives the bikes to AIDS workers and other relief workers in Africa. Your money couldn’t go farther.
Backed by the bike industry and a “generous supporter” the site is raising money for World Bicycle Relief a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Between now and December 19th any monies given to the site will be matched one-for-one by the mystery donor. It costs $134 to supply a bike, but even small amounts help.
