Many of our supporters at World Bicycle Relief are also our youngest ones! And whether they start their fundraising journeys at home or at school, we love to hear about the creative ways in which they raise awareness and funds for The Power of Bicycles.

The students at AIM Academy in Philadelphia got creative with their second-ever WBR fundraiser. This year, students learned about the members of Zambia’s Palabana community while raising funds for Buffalo Bicycles. Students use hummus, coins and candy to deliver 18 bicycles
A series of “TED”-style talks focusing on WBR’s work didn’t come from the usual presenters. A group of third-graders from TOPS K-8 in Seattle researched, presented and persuade their classmates and parents to support The Power of Bicycles. “TED Talks” for kids
