World Bicycle Relief runs holiday giving campaign

World Bicycle Relief has undertaken an ambitious drive to raise US$13,400 in just 48 hours – from noon CST Wednesday, December 17, through noon CST Friday, December 19, the organization looks to raise enough money to purchase 100 bicycles for its programs in Africa. What's more, a generous donor has agreed to match all donations through the end of the year, so the goal is really 200 bikes – impacting the lives of more than 4,000 people.

Donations are being accepted through www.doublebikematch.org, and any amount will help, with each $134 representing an entire bicycle.
