Bike-a-thon Fundraiser

One of the ways I am going to raise money to buy the 42 bicycles for the children at the Machao Orphanage is to set up a Bike-a-thon. After talking with the director of the Orphanage, Carolyn Rowley, we have decide to set the Bike-a-thon on May 4. Setting up a Bike-a-thon is a difficult process, so I have contacted a young man, Jaime, at Crank LA Clothing Store. Him and his friends have organized many bike-a-thons and other various biking events. They have also offered to create a unique Bikes 4 Orphanages logo and redesign my flyers and posters with the help of their talented graphic design team. With their help, the bike-a-thon will be something amazing we can all look forward too. I don't have specific details on the bike-a-thon but it will be incorporated with my high school, St. Francis High School in La Canada. See you all there!

American Giving Awards!

Cameron Sinclair,  the co-founder of Architecture for Humanity, gave my mother and I tickets to see the American Giving Awards. I am very grateful for the tickets because the stories I heard at the American Giving Awards inspired me to not give up until the orphanage had the 42 bicycles and a functional electric irrigation pump. The host Joel McHale was hilarious, the musicians like Colbie Caillat, Natasha Bedingfield, Darius Rucker, Lifehouse, and Randy Travis were also amazing and entertaining.
