Wheels4Life – Providing Low Cost Quality Bikes for Third World Countries

Two fundraisers, two continents

Posted:

In Wilmington, Delaware 7 year old Mallory Holloway was asked what she would like for her birthday. Unlike many of us who would be instantly thinking of a whole lot of things on our fun wish list, Mallory asked for no presents. Instead she aksed for donations to be sent to Wheels 4 Life so that others could receive a present from her. I think that is pretty amazingly selfless, for anyone, but especially for a 7 year old. Thanks to Mallory who raised $450, we will be able to buy four bicycles in her honor. 

Over the ocean in England Sheffield’s Brendon Tyree took on the challenge of riding from one side of the fair island to the other in the Coast to Coast ride.

A poem written by a young man that received a Wheels 4 Life bicycle

THE BIKE: TWO WHEELS MANY USES!!

I knew a bike before but I never knew it does great things,

My father rode it but never told me it’s a great means of transport

The bike took my father to work and we had our school fees

The bike brought my father back home, and we had it for domestic use

Mr. Bike, where did you come from?

I need to know your ancestors Mr. bike,

Be you Male or female, you are a commendable machine!

 

You have two wheels but so many uses!

During harvesting you bring our food home.

Every morning you take me to school and bring me back home in time after school

You make no noise, you make no pollution

You are environmental friendly

Oh you bike how useful you are!

 

When we harvested our maize, you took it to the market,

When I sold ...
