No contribution is too small
Close your eyes and think about every childhood holiday or birthday gift you received. What is the single distinct gift about which you remember the day, event, color, style, brand and what you did the moment after receiving your gift? For many, this positive lifelong memory will be the day you received your first new bike. Now, imagine the tears of joy and squeals of glee that children with a history of abuse and neglect would experience if they see a shiny two-wheeled surprise under the tree in 2013. Positive lifelong memories are in short supply for many of these kids. Help the Bike Lady create this magical experience.
FCCS annually serves nearly 25,000 children with about 5,000 youth under its direct care each holiday season. Please help the Bike Lady fulfill a fraction of those holiday wishes and also spread the love to other Ohio counties, too.
