A couple days ago, a teenager and a new friend approached me to offer his help with Bikes 4 Orphans. Kahui is an example of a teenager who has decided to combine his passion for cycling with charity. Like the rest of the Bikes 4 Orphans team, he is an avid cyclist. He is also part of the junior cycling team of the PAA (Pasadena Athletic Association), a prestigious cycling team and association. As an 11th grader at Arcadia High School, he has already taken initiative and has began making plans to organize a fundraiser at his school to raise more money and create public awareness about Bikes 4 Orphans. He has already proven to be an valuable team member. With his help we can attract more cyclists to our Bike-a-thon at Mt. Wilson on June 2nd. Kahui is a great role model for future teenagers who want to be part of something greater than themselves and combine their passion with charity!

Recently we turned in our application for the Peace First Prize. This organization awards $50,000 to projects that promote peace, like ours. Bikes 4 Orphans promotes peace by donating bicycles to orphans so they will have the opportunity to go to school and receive a better education. This education will prevent them from living lives of violence and crime in a country where poverty rates are high and crime is prevalent. You can visit their website here and read about interesting projects they have funded to promote peace: http://www.peacefirst.org/prize/ .
