World Bicycle Relief. Please find a video of the delivery here. With the assistance of a loyal and convenient bicycle, orphans are able to drastically reduce their travel time to and from school, which used to require approximately two hours, and work. Also, one orphan was able to visit a far-reaching family member, for the first time in two years, because of the bicycle that he received. Recently, the Focus on Children Now (FCN) non-profit organization adopted Bikes 4 Orphans as a branch of their organization. Bikes 4 Orphans has been noticeably busy in the past and looks to continue improving the lives of underprivileged orphans in the future.
Publicity has been instrumental in continuing the promotion of Bikes 4 Orphans and the idea of spreading a positive message. Articles have been written in Pasadena Now, Crescenta Valley Weekly, Glendale News-Press, and the Los Angeles Times regarding work which has been accomplished by Bikes 4 Orphans. Recently, Bikes 4 Orphans was a feature story on KNBC4 and the video may be viewed here. In the near future, October 26th, 2013, Bikes 4 Orphans will be hosting their first annual Hike-a-thon and Bike-a-thon in order to raise awareness and proceeds for the project. Event information may be viewed at http://b4ofundraiser.blogspot.com/. Please come out to support Bikes 4 Orphans and the future of the group.
