As extra credit, we are taking donations for a “class bike” to be sent to someone in Africa (and/or also a mechanic’s toolkit to help create a lasting job for someone). To learn more about what bicycles can do, view this video:
Now, come up with a creative way to raise awareness and money for the “Power of Bicycles!” Here is a link to helpful tools with information, statistics, and logos that you can use to create your own flyer, video, etc. to spread the word.
Donations are welcome, but I can’t just give you points for money. To earn extra credit, you need to RAISE AWARENESS. This could be something as simple as tweeting a video or information mentioning @PowerOfBicycles, taking a screenshot, and emailing it to me. That would be 1 point.
For more points, you can get creative! Have a lemonade stand and pass out flyers that you make showing people where the money goes. Sell some old stuff in your garage and pass out a flyer you make showing people where the money goes. Come up with a fundraiser to do here at school, again involving a homemade flyer that shares information on the World Bicycle Relief. Donate a portion of your babysitting earnings, grass-cutting money, etc. and give the person who is paying you a homemade flyer showing them where their money is going.
Depending on the time and effort involved, you can earn up to 10 bonus points. Collections will be taken through Friday, June 6th. Grab some friends and make a difference!
