Another year, another great Idaho Gives!

 

Thank you to everyone who donated last Thursday during Idaho Gives. You not only helped us raise $12,525 through individual donations, but also an extra $1,250 because we won 2nd place for unique donations in our organization level. That’s right: you are officially a “BBP Unique Donor”!

It’s worth knowing the impact of your dollar, and here at BBP you impact a lifetime. With your donation, our 2019 goals of 1000 bicycles donated to kids, 40 Mobile Fix-It’s a month, and so many other small, big and ultimately empowering experiences and opportunities for kids to come. You have helped us continue to provide programs, resources, parts and best of all, a community to come to!

This is your impact, and for that we are endlessly thankful to you.

On Idaho Gives, we had quite the Pedal-Powered day. In case you missed it, check out some highlights below!

I met up with Jeremy Maxand of Idaho Access Project in Barber Valley to discuss the importance of accessibility of neighborhood amenities for the disabled community, and how bicycle advocates can work to improve infrastructure amenities for our fellow community members.

 
 

In the afternoon, Jimmy visited Christa and the Mobile Fix-It crew and got to know some of the kids coming for bike repairs!

Many of their bikes came from BBP, and Faiza was excited to de-winter her bike and get ready for sunny adventures! The Mobile Bike Repair is a great example of the BBP Experience that continues for many of the kids we give bicycles away to. We look forward to keeping kids like Faiza and her friends from the Civic Plaza rollin’ through the future!

 
 
 
 

What we are most thankful for at BBP and something that stuns me daily, is your commitment to helping us provide access and education to bicycles for all. Whether you donate, volunteer or support our efforts through our membership program, you create the BBP Experience.

Thank you for riding,

Nina
