Project 2016-05-20 08:21:42 +1200

Every child deserves to experience the unique freedom, independence and well being that only a bike can offer. Recall the joy of riding a new bicycle, and now picture a foster child having this magical experience - For every dollar donated we are one step closer to foster  children have the fun, freedom and independence of a bike so that they can enjoy experiences with friends and families. By having this independence, children can start to learn new life skills and engage in fun summer and lunchtime activities with friends. Your donation can help make this a reality.

 

Our project as a group of 20 fifteen and sixteen year olds is to raise $550 in order to purchase bike kits and build them for three foster children who may not otherwise be given this opportunity.

 

Our campaign is run in support of Fostering Kids New Zealand. Fostering Kids NZ supports the families who have opened their homes to over 10,000 foster children across New Zealand. This support means that the foster children helps to ensure that foster children have stable and caring environment.

 

Two testimonials of Fostering Kids work (from their website):

“I was truly ready to hand my foster son back as I just could not find the energy to fight anymore. The support of Fostering Kids gave me the energy and confidence to keep going. The results have been the best for all and we are still supporting our foster son and his family and loving every minute of it again.” – Foster parent

“It’s because of my foster family, and because of people like Fostering Kids, and people like you, that I’ve been able to grow up the way I have, and I thank every one of you.” – Fostered teenager

We are supporting Fostering Kids New Zealand because we believe it is an organisation that is doing amazing work to help and support the caring families who have opened their homes to children in need. The amount of commitment and love that these parents welcome these children with is infinite - we believe that this should be celebrated and in order to show our appreciation and support we want to build a bike for the children of these families.  


We appreciate every donation you make! Even if it is only small, every dollar counts towards a great new experience for these children! Donate now!

11 Edwards tutor groupHello, Everyone! Firstly we'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us and donated to our campaign! It means a ton to us, and we hope you know that you've contributed to a great cause.

 

Since we have surpassed our original goal (thank you!) we have spoken to the organisers, and they have allowed us to fundraise for even more bikes! So, as one of our pledgers has commented, let's "Keep those wheels turning!"

 

Our new goal is to raise enough money for 5 bikes, in order to do this we'll need to raise approximately $920. We raised $765 in one week, and we still have one week left! So let's do it!

 

Love,

ED Bikes
