Please Support three very worthy causes which we are cycling across Africa in support of, with riders already under way as I write this. I will join up with the crew in April in Zambia in Livingstone, famed site of Victoria Falls.
Jen, James and Chris carefully selected these three organizations to benefit from our ride as they are either involved with them (Jen helped co found Zawadisha) or know them personally. The funds will go to direct action and impact, not paperwork, mailings or inefficiency. These organizations have a proven track record of impact to improve the lives of the humans, and animals, they work with radically.
About the Campaign with African Spokes
Africa is the last place people picture lycra-clad cyclists dashing down dirt roads or climbing striking switchbacks. And that’s exactly why we created African Spokes.
We're switching gears into an adventure like no other, cycling through game parks and scenic countrysides, along soaring cliffs and across sand dunes. We're doing it all on two wheels, and all while doing good.
AND THAT'S WHERE YOU COME IN
We are fundraising for three incredible charities who are working with local communities to make Africa a better place for everyone and everything, all in their own unique way. From the environment, to education, to women's empowerment, to wildlife conservation, our beneficiaries are making change and we can help them take it to the next level.
Whether you contribute a penny or a pound, you will help me to make my ride have impact beyond what I experience, but to create actual change in places we travel through.
This isn't charity, it's change, and we invite you to join us.
