Here is an organization after my own heart, the fine folks at Bikes Not Bombs use bicycles as a vehicle for social change and they need our support.

About Bikes Not Bombs:

“Bikes Not Bombs uses the bicycle as a vehicle for social change.We reclaim thousands of bicycles each year. We create local and global programs that provide skill development, jobs, and sustainable transportation. Our programs mobilize youth and adults to be leaders in community transformation. Each year we collect roughly 6,000 used bicycles and tons of used parts from our supporters around Greater Boston and New England. We ship most of these bikes overseas to economic development projects through our International Programs in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.”
