GREAT CAUSE

So, what makes this trip even more special you might ask? Well, how about using it to raise money to the underprivileged children of the world.

How can I be so selfish to live my own dreams of traveling the world on a bike without helping others live theirs. I want to raise $18000 US Dollars ($1 for every mile ridden) to allow Room to Read to build a computer lab in Delhi, India where I will cut the ribbon and thank many of you while there. This money will also allow Room to Read to build a whole school in Nepal and fund a ten year scholarship to a little girl in Vietnam. Many lifes can be permanently changed! Your donation is like my fuel. How many miles can I ride under your support? Please share the vision, read on and see for yourself how important your contribution could be!!!


Why did I choose Room to Read and why should you?

First of all, I became a volunteer in the beginning of 2004 because I wanted to help those who help children. There are hundreds of organizations helping children so that's not really a motivating factor. What is motivating is that Room to Read believes in helping them in the long term giving them privileges that will last several generations besides helping children with the power of knowledge. Your donations have a permanent impact on many future generations. Think about it! Moreover, if you get to know the staff of Room to Read as well as I do, you will notice a tremendous commitment and incredible passion for anything they do. They truly love helping the children -- something I share as well.

How Can We Help?

For all of you who want to help, do so directly through their web site by donating whatever amount you can. They will love to hear from you. Just make sure that you mention Planet By Bike under their special instructions box so that we can keep track of all donations.

If you really can't help finance a book, a scholarship or a schoo or a computer labl, please download and print out my flyer and give it to your co-workers or post it in your work bulletin board, your favority school's board or places where people could get involved. If every visitor on this site did this, the word could be spread to millions.

You can also forward this page to all of your friends who may be able to help in any way. If you wish to translate this flyer to your own language, please do so by downloading the MS Word .doc file here. Send it to me when you are done. As you see, there are many ways to get involved, please choose every way you can.

If you would like to know more about Room to Read and other ways to get involved, visit their web site.

So, how do I help the passionate adventurer?

It's very important to me to help Room to Read build schools and support the underprivileged children. Any money donation will automatically go to Room to Read but there are other ways that you can help. If you can donate in the form of equipment, mile rewards, sponsorship, your satellite radio subscription or any creative way you can think of, just let me know or follow the instructions on the bottom of this page to contribute. I will retribute your favor by spreading the word about the benefits of cycling...the benefits of chasing your dream in the most inspirational, genuine way.
