Bikes & Trikes for Tikes!

It's that time again. Time to make smiles come to the faces of a lot of Children this Christmas. Last year, the Johnson Family, The Kiwanis Club of South Orlando, Variety Children's Charities, MSI Corp and other great organizations, individuals and families came together to create those smiles, 500 of them. Our "Bike Build" was quite the event, and believe it or not, with all the help from so many people we built all those bike is under 5 hours! And yes, they all worked!
We now have an opportunity to double our fun by reaching our goal of 1,000 bikes this year. The exponential growth of this effort, started by the Johnsons, is truly a miracle. We are looking for even more good people to come to our Bike Build and make a difference. Get your hands into it, it is easier than you think, in as little as 5 minutes you can put together a bike that will be the best gift a kid gets this Christmas. Bring yourself, your family, friends, or make it your company Christmas party. Give a gift of your time, and yes a little sweat, instead of pretending to have a good time at the company gift swap. Be a "Secret Santa" for someone that can still believe in him.
If you can't be at the Bike Build, Dec. 13th, then raising money or making a donation would be greatly appreciated. All are welcome!
God Bless you, and Merry Christmas!
