At-risk and less fortunate children need your help — and bikes! Do you remember the exhilaration and independence you felt when you first rode a bike? Unfortunately, not everyone is privileged enough to have that formative experience.
You can change that by donating a used bike. BYOBikes, in partnership with Attic Space, will pick up bikes on or off campus this spring — free-of-charge! Getting these children rolling will be a fantastic way to give back to the NOLA community and build a brighter tomorrow.
Learning to ride a bike can do wonders for a child’s confidence and independence. Not only that, but the fun of riding and the feel-of-the-breeze might be the biggest rush of joy these kids experience in a day.
The Perfect Summer Solution
Donating solves that bike storage problem experienced by dorm dwellers leaving for summer and students living abroad. Just leaving your bike behind is a lot of extra work & hassle for campus police. So, it’s a win-win situation for students and parents. And, it makes one lucky kid’s day (or year) in the process.
Donating to BYOBikes couldn’t be simpler — just visit the Attic Space website and click the “Donate My Bike” option to let them know you’ve got a bike to donate. We’ll then co-ordinate to arrange a stress-free and convenient pick-up time.
If you’ve got additional summer storage needs, let us know, and we can take care of those at the same time! Attic Space offers great rates for summer storage and beyond — we deliver the bags, you pack them, we pick them up, and return them at the push of a button.
If you don’t have a bike, you can still help this cause! Please spread the word to other parents and students in and around NOLA. Together, we can create a better future for these children!
BYOBikes is a 501c3 non-profit with the mission of building a stronger and safer community by spreading joy with the gift of a bike donated to at-risk and less fortunate children in the Greater New Orleans and Gulf Coast Mississippi Communities.
