250 Bikes for Kids

Goal

$20,000.00

Make a tax deductible donation today and help raise $20,000 to achieve our goal of delivering 250 top quality bikes to children in need across Australia.


Because every child deserves to experience the joy of riding a bike.

Every $80 donated will enable us to put a fully reconditioned, high quality bike in the hands of a child in need – a first nations child, a refugee, a child with a disability, or child from a disadvantaged background.

 

Right now, thousands of bikes are lying neglected and unridden across the country … rusting away in sheds, dumped on the streets, in parks and rivers or left out for council clean up, headed for landfill.

Revolve Recycling has been working to change the destiny of these abandoned and unwanted bikes. We’ve been rescuing these bikes from the waste stream, diverting them from landfill, and giving the bikes a second life. Of the bikes we’ve rescued about half are children’s bikes.

With your help and through our charity arm, Revolve Recycling Foundation, we will ensure these rescued bikes are fully restored, safety-checked and given to children who really need and appreciate them. Children who would not otherwise get the opportunity to ride a bike.


We are working with first nations organisations in the inner city and in the outback, schools for children with disabilities, family and child support services, refugee groups and others to identify and get bikes to the communities, schools, families and children who need them most.


The benefits of bike riding for children are huge:

  • Bike riding is an excellent way to improve children's physical health and abilities, including balance, muscle strength, and coordination skills. 
  • Bike riding provides a practical, cheap form of transport to get to school each day. It helps improve school attendance in disadvantaged areas.
  • Bike riding provides children with a sense of freedom and independence that they may not experience in other areas of life. It provides social connection for children who feel isolated or don’t fit in.
  • Bike riding provides a real boost to mental health and wellbeing.


Your $80 donation will help cover the transport cost of collecting and delivering one bike, the cost of parts and labour to restore and repair the bike, plus storage and other associated costs. And gets the bike in the hands of child who needs and appreciates it. Thank you
