Fat Cyclist & Red Kite Prayer Team Up

 

The Fat Cyclist and Red Kite Prayer Team Up for a 2016 Grand Slam for World Bicycle Relief!

You can help change thousands of lives through the Fat Cyclist’s Grand Slam for World Bicycle Relief! For every $10 donated, you will help provide bicycles for students in Kenya while also having a chance to win a host of amazing prizes. Every $147 will put a bicycle into the hands of a student fighting for their education. The Fat Cyclist needs your help to reach his goal of raising funds for 1,000 bikes to create A Way Forward for students in rural Africa. Enter for your chance to win on #GivingTuesday and throughout December to help us mobilize students and empower 1,200 individuals through The Power of Bicycles.

To date, the Fat Cyclist and his friends have raised $850,000 for World Bicycle Relief.

Donate on the Fat Cyclist’s Fundraising Page to enter the Grand Slam for Students contest today!

Where the money goes: The money from this campaign will be designated to support the expansion of World Bicycle Relief’s Bicycles for Educational Empowerment Program (BEEP) into rural Africa. Thanks to World Bicycle Relief and people like The Fat Cyclist, students who receive World Bicycle Relief’s Buffalo bikes reach school quicker and safer, and are more likely to stay in school. Help Fat Cyclist, Red Kite Prayer, and friends raise 1,000 bicycles this holiday season. It’s the power of bicycles in action!

The Fat Cyclist’s Grand Slam for World Bicycle Relief will follow the rules in effect at the time the prize is awarded. Team Fatty and Red Kite Prayer have partnered with WBR to facilitate the license of this raffle with the City of Chicago. The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances to participate in raffles, lotteries or similar programs are not gifts and, therefore, the price of the entry does not qualify as a tax-deductible charitable contribution. Check with your qualified financial advisor for additional information.
