Bikes for the World can deliver your old bike to a new owner overseas where it will be used to get someone to school, work, or health services. How you can help today:

E-CARE Spring 2014

Saturday April 19 8:30am – 3pm
TJ Middle School
125 South Old Glebe Rd Arlington VA 22204

Donate a bicycle, bike parts, or accessories to Bikes for the World. Don’t have a bike to donate? You can still ‘sponsor’ a bike delivery by donating financially to Bikes for the World online. Each bike costs about $25 to deliver to a qualified program who refurbishes the bike and trains the new owner to ride and maintain the bike.

Your bike and a suggested $10 donation help us meet our mission of helping deserving individuals gain affordable transportation in rural areas worldwide. Your old bike could help transform lives.

Yup, Phoenix is another great option too. But if you're not in the immediate area Bikes For the World has collections scheduled all over the region: http://www.bikesfortheworld.org/donate-a-bike/collection-schedule

Bikes For The World also loves volunteers--ever seen several hundred bikes loaded into one shipping container?
