Give a Bike
As a follow-up to our post on Alaffia's Bicycles for Education project, we found ways you can donate:
* If you happen to live in the Puget Sound area of Washington, you can donate bicycles by calling 360-866-0080 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
* People the outside this area can donate bike parts such as inner tubes, chains, helmets, cables, and tires by mailing them to 540 B Ronlee Lane NW, Olympia, WA 98502.
* Don't have bikes or bike parts but want to help? You can donate funds through the Alaffia website. Shipping from the US to Togo, initial repairs, and maintenance for two years costs about $40 per bike, so these donations really help. You can also mail a check to Alaffia's non profit, the Global Alliance for Community Empowerment (GACE) at PO Box 12114, Olympia, WA 98508-2114.
