Give Gifts for Good this Holiday Season

Hello there, wonderful supporters!

We hope that you all are doing well and enjoying the beautiful mess of busyness and delight that the holidays can bring! In this special season of thanksgiving and reflecting, we would be remise if we did not take a moment to tell you all how incredibly grateful we are for each and every one of you. We appreciate your support, your giving hearts, your continued partnership, and your continued patience with our many emails and social media exploits. You all are our heros!

We also wanted to send you a little update on the wonderful happenings at Bicycles for Humanity - Georgia, and ways that you can give gifts with lasting impact this holiday season!

  • We hosted two incredibly fun film screenings in Athens and Atlanta this fall, for the Georgia premier of "Where on Earth is My Bike?"! We had an absolute blast, and would love to share photos from these events with you on our Facebook page.
  • Some amazingly talented friends of B4H GA created a video for us from footage of our May evaluation trip to Namibia. If you haven't seen it already, it is worth the watch!
  • Gifts for Good this holiday season: There are so many ways that you can give empowerment and hope through transporation this year! By donating through the GlobalGiving Gifts for Good giftshop, you can select to receive a free bracelet made by women of the Namibian Himba tribe! And, to make it even better, EVERY donation for the month of December will receive a link to download an exclusive, pre-release track from our very own co-founder, Davis Harwell's upcoming album! A little ear candy(cane), as I like to say.

And, saving the best for last, we are thrilled to announce that we are over halfway to our fundraising goal for sending our second shipment of bikes to Namibia!! Great work, team!! Let's keep it going strong throughout the new year!

Thank you again for all that you do, and the wonderful support that you provide to Bicycles for Humanity - Georgia and the people we serve. We are honored to be on this journey with you!! 

Happy Holidays to you and yours, from us and ours -
Mary Harwell & the B4H GA family
