This might be something some of you guys are interested in, so i figured id post it up here.
This summer I'm riding my bicycle from Nags Head, NC to San Diego to promote affordable housing, helping build along the way, and fundraising. I'm doing this with an organization called Bike and Build, www.bikeandbuild.org
, which is a non for profit organization that fund-raises for affordable housing organizations like Habitat for Humanity and organizes rides across the country to supply volunteers like me.
I chose to ride for affordable housing because its a hand up and not hand out. The houses that these people receive are only reduced cost, not free. The organizations that bike and build support use financial programs to help recipient learn to become a fiscally responsible member of their community.
To do this I have a 4500 dollar fundraising goal and between just the members on my route we will have 150,000 dollars raised between us. If any would like to know more or are interested in donating, I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Bike and Build is a 501c3 so all donations can be written off.
