Pedaling4Pennies is doing its 3rd Outreach-International fundraiser. Bob (& daughter Kathleen) biked Florida to California in 2010, and Canada to Mexico in 2014, with wife Doris driving support.
Now Bob is “getting his kicks on Route 66”, bicycling the 2,499 miles from Santa Monica Pier, California to Chicago, IL, in May & June. The goal is to raise $2500, or $1 per mile for Outreach-International, an organization we are supporters of, and have seen working first hand on “site visits” to Malawi, Bolivia, and Nicaragua.
Outreach-International is different from most organizations becase it provides sustainable solutions to help end extreme poverty in 10 nations. Local staff live for a short time in the villages to determine what their needs are, then work with and train them to be able to get resources, giving the communities the tools they need to maintain & continue their own success. It has been a joy to see the impowerment of women in the villages, and hear the "before Outreach" stories, and what they have become working together. We feel Outreach-International teaches people skills that are sustainable, rather than giving them goods.
Breaking the cycle of poverty is a team effort….won’t you join our team?? By donating on this link, Outreach-International will send you a receipt for your tax deductible contribution.
