$5000 donation

23 Apr

Howdy folks,

Great news, Coca Cola USA has donated $5000! Yip, that’s $5000 that will be donated directly to BEN, Nambia. And that’s great news as it means BEN, Namibia will now have enough money to give our project the green light.

A big thank you to everyone who has donated. $9451.95 out of the $12,000 target has been raised so far for Bicycles For Humanity (our Melbourne based charity), this money going towards getting the sea container full of old bikes from Melbourne to Africa. And Coca Cola’s $5000 has been donated to BEN, Namibia (the charity on the ground in Africa)  to help with the implementation of the container.

If you would like to donate and help us reach the $12,000 target, then head to my fundraising site.

In a coming post I will fill you in on our container destination and therefore the place where I will be celebrating my 30th birthday and the culmination of my goal on the 11/11/11.

Also as I mentioned previously we will be holding our BEERS, BIKES and BANDS fundraising gig in Melbourne on the 29th of May at the Workers Club on Brunswick st.  We are looking for donation of items for our Silent Auction from companies that our passionate about our cause.

Big shout out to our event sponsor Little Creatures Brewery. If your company is interested in offering something for our silent auction please contact us at beerbikesandbands@gmail.com.

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who has donated and everyone that is helping make this happen.
