Happy Birthday Deena!

I knew that in order for this project to succeed, I needed to inspire teenagers to help these 42 orphans! I am honored and proud to say that this has come true, especially from a generous donation from a teenage girl, Deena. She just celebrated her 14th birthday. Most teenagers want to buy clothes, video games, shoes and other "stuff", but instead she decided to donate $300 from her birthday money to this cause. She is an inspiration to all teenagers, that we do have the power to change lives. Her generous gift will allow us to buy 3 bicycles for orphans, some of them which are teenagers like Deena and I. Her donation will change the lives of these three orphans forever and give them the precious gift of education. I hope Deena can be a role model to other teenagers! Thank you Deena for your support and for believing in this cause!

With her donation, I am pleased to say that we have now raised $3300! Only $900 until we reach our goal!

Hi everyone! I am pleased to announce that we have raised $3000 out of the $4200 needed. I am very grateful for the donation on behalf of the Armenian Youth Federation (AYF). After giving a presentation about Bikes 4 Orphans to 40 kids from ages 8-16, they donated $500 to this project. The good news does not end there. I have been applying for many grants in hopes of being awarded money for this cause and The Pollination Project has been very generous and donated $1000 to Bikes 4 Orphans. These past couple of days have really advanced this project toward our goal of $4200. Thank you so much to AYF, The Pollination Project and all the other donors.

In order to raise the rest of the $1200, we have planned bake sales at St. Francis High School, a dinner fundraiser at a local restaurant, and the Bike-a-thon in May.

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped with this project. We are changing the lives of 42 very deserving orphans!
