GBCONNECT 2015 

I am so pleased to announce that I have been selected by globalbike™ to join their team in Tanzania in July 2015 and share their mission of connecting people in rural villages with the fundamental resources such as water, food, and medical attention. If you are not familiar with globalbike™, here are some interesting facts on their mission:
o globalbike™ was started in 2006 with a donation of 10 bicycles.
o To date in 2014, they have donated thousands of bicycles changing the lives of women around Tanzania.
o Prior to receiving a globalbike™ bicycle, women typically walk 6-7 times per day (more than 5 miles away) to collect clean water for their household, gather food to feed their families, and accomplish tasks of daily living that we so often take for granted.

I will depart for Africa on July 17, 2015 and will begin my two week journey through Tanzania on two wheels. We will ride through the Kilimanjaro region on bikes to get a first-hand experience on why bicycles are so important in the area. We will ride our bikes to visit the organizations that globalbike™ provides support for, visit the rural villages along the way, and camp under the African sky.

I am so excited to be involved in such a worthwhile endeavor, but in order to participate, I need your help and am asking for your financial support. Would you please consider a donation?
