Help change lives through The Power of Bicycles

I am thrilled to share that I am helping to change lives through the Power of Bicycles! I’m raising funds and awareness for World Bicycle Relief, a global nonprofit organization committed to helping individuals overcome the barrier of distance in developing communities around the world.

I became an advocate for World Bicycle Relief when I learned first hand what 'The Power of Bicycles' means to a recipient. While living in Johannesburg I had the pleasure of getting to know our landlord's caretaker, Nkululeko Ndlovu (known as Freedom). Freedom left Zimbabwe for South Africa in 1989 to build a more prosperous future for hism:
1. Much needed means of transport. Previously if he needed to go somewhere he either had to walk or pay the high cost of a taxi to get there. Now he can go to far more places that were previously difficult for him to get to.
2. Freedom lives 20 kms from where he works. Previously he had to pay R50 ($5) per day for a taxi to get to work and back. This equates to almost one third of his daily wages. This high cost meant that he had far less money to send back to his family in Zimbabwe and for him to live on.
3. It has also proven good for his health as he feels fitter as a result of daily exercise.

Please consider supporting me as I work to empower women and girls through the Power of Bicycles. Every donation makes a difference, and a contribution of $165 puts a brand-new Buffalo Bicycle into the hands of a person in need!

Thank you for your support.
