I am a cyclist that is passionate about people and children. I experienced a tragic loss 21 years ago that changed my point of view on life and forced me to think about ways to give back to my community and add value to children's lives. After years of thinking about this, I finally decided to discuss it with friends and family who support this cause fully and will be assisting me to reach my goal.
Instead of donating money to a randomly selected charity - We want to donate one thousand (1000) push-bikes to underprivileged children aged 2 - 6 years old in and around Gauteng in December 2019.
Our focus is on donating the bikes to orphanages. These orphanages will be carefully selected to ensure that the bikes are given to the facilities most in need.
I decided to donate push-bikes because they are a gift that can be used and shared, these bikes have the potential to bring happiness and independence to young children in challenging environments. They can be moved safely and easily, especially over uneven surfaces and are light and easy to ride.
