How to Get a Bike to Your Vacation Spot AND Help a Local Charity for Less Than a Round Trip Taxi Ride from the Airport.

Why, and Where to Donate Your Bike

Again, it was not cost wise to bring the bike home. So, I decided on the next best thing. I gifted the bike and basket to my favorite local non-profit. I chose The San Francisco AIDS Foundation who could and would find a happy recipient that needed transportation. I even received a receipt and I will write off on taxes. It is win-win for everyone!

The San Francisco AIDS Foundation does great work for everyone in the city. In the past, I have raised funds and ridden the California AIDS Life Cycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. They supply spectacular benefits and housing support for our youth, which is where my bike went to live, happily.

Iā€™m positive there are many organizations to choose from who would be delighted to receive a bike as a gift wherever it is you may be vacationing. A simple online search should yield some great choices.
