Helping  To  Provide  Kids  In  Need  With  The  Enjoyment  Of
 
Owning  &  Riding  Their  Own  Bicycle.


  Bikes For Kids is an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity that provides needy children and families with bicycles and new helmets.  In August of 2013, Bikes For Kids delivered its 15,000th bicycle since 1989.
 
We have been consistently donating 900 to 1200 bikes a year for the last 4 years, donated  1,321 bikes in 2013, and plan on dramatically increasing those numbers in the years to come. 

The vast majority of our donated bicycles go to kids here in Connecticut, but we have shipped bikes to Haiti after the horrible earthquake, brought 136 bicycles to New York areas hit hard from Super Storm Sandy, and have even sent bicycles to Africa to help local villages get water and supplies faster.

 

 

       Bikes For Kids now has a Facebook page.      
If you are a facebook user, please "like" the page and encourage your friends to as well.
We would love to get 500 followers by July 4, 2014.  It is a great way to
keep up on new events and progress of Bikes For Kids.

Claudia Paul's Fund Rising efforts have ended,
with her reaching 94% of her goal.

Thanks to all who helped in contributing to and who helped spread the word of her fund raising efforts.

We will update you when Claudia Paul returns from her trip to Tanzania with the non-profit.

She will be there to document their important humanitarian work at an orphanage. Claudia will also be there to capture the children’s excitement when they receive around 40 of our bicycles which are on their way to Africa right now via a shipping container loaded with donated goods for the orphanage and village.
