This holiday season, please consider making a contribution to purchase a bicycle, or give a gift in honor

UPDATE: Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, all gifts received by December 31, 2008 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $750,000 – that’s $1.5 million toward The Power of Bicycles! Please help us reach our goal today!

The program will reach more than 500,000 adults, orphans and vulnerable
