Portland, OR, - Hubinero, 88Bikes and Wheels4Life intend to improve the quality of peoples' lives one bike at a time. For every new registered member who lists an item on www.hubinero.com, a donation of $1 will be made and divided equally between both charities. The Peddle for Pedals charity promotion will run until 10/31/2010 or when our goal of $2,000 has been reached, whichever comes first. Hubinero is completely free so try it out today and help us promote cycling as a sustainable source of empowerment.
The 88Bikes Foundation has a very simple goal: to provide a sustainable, joyful, empowering form of transportation to young people in developing countries, in situations where these children have been challenged to be their own heroes due to war, conflict, poverty, disease, or other regional hardships. www.88bikes.org
Wheels4Life is a non-profit charity (501c(3)),that provides free bicycles for people in need of transportation in Third World countries. We partner with local individuals, organizations and other groups to help us identify persons who sincerely need a bike to be able to go to school or to work. Often these people live in very primitive and remote areas with no access or means to public transportation. The closest school, doctor or work-place might be 10 or 20 miles away. Having a bike can make all the difference in somebody's life and can give them a chance to break out of the vicious poverty cycle. The gift of mobility, in form of a bicycle, can do miracles. www.wheels4life.org
