Got this in the mail, looks like a great way to give back and still go for a ride. Hope it doesn’t rain!
This ride will start Tuesday night at 6 pm in front of the Independent in Union Square.. They are asking for a minimum $10 donation.
We are a group of bike lovers in and around Somerville, MA. This holiday season, we’re teaming up to bike for a purpose: to bring holiday cheer to homeless and underprivileged children in Somerville.
The Somerville Sleigh Ride
On the evening of Tuesday, December 18th, we are hosting a holiday-themed charity ride through the streets of Somerville. Suggested donation for the ride is $10-$20 (no one turned away).
We will bike through the streets of Somerville dressed up as elves, reindeer, etc, with a pedicab sleigh, and Santa! We’re going to have a lot of fun. There will be caroling throughout the city.
And with the funds raised here on indiegogo and through participants of the ride, we will purchase gifts for homeless and underprivileged children, our neighbors, right here in Somerville.
We’re hoping to provide for as many as 30 kids this year. (30 x 20 = 600!) Your contributions will make this possible. We simply couldn’t do this without your help.
What We Need & What You Get
We need to raise a minimum of $200 for our first Sleigh Ride to be a success. But we want to hit this one out of the ballpark.
The more money we raise, the more kids we can provide for, and the quality of gifts will increase, too. Every little bit counts.
And any and all extra funds raised will go directly to the Somerville Homeless Coalition.
You will get an email update from us after the ride with photos, but more importantly, you’ll get the satisfaction of helping children in need.
We are helping to bring smiles, toy trucks, footie pajamas, fuzzy slippers, etc., to kids in need in our neighborhood! What could be better than that?
