Have some old bikes taking up space in your garage? Put them to good use by donating them to Working Bikes in Chicago. Working Bikes rescues discarded bicycles and gives them new life by redistributing them as tools of empowerment in local and global communities. In addition to donating to individuals and partner organizations in Chicago, Working Bikes ships thousands of bikes each year throughout Latin America and Africa, including El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, Uganda, Lesotho, Sierra Leone, South Africa, and Ghana. It’s pretty cool to think that neglected bike may end up on the other side of the world helping someone out. Find out all the details here – http://www.workingbikes.org/
You don’t even have to travel all the way to Chicago to donate the bike as we’re making it easy by being a drop off point. Bring in your bikes to The Crazy Loon any time between now and September 17th and we’ll make sure they make it to Chicago!
