We help you and your company put on a charity bike building event and build a sense of team and community goodwill.
Bikes for Goodness Sake is a non-profit 501c(3) that helps companies and individuals create charity bike build events. We have helped with events all over the United States ranging from one bike to hundreds. Groups from 2 to 180.
Here is a great video of a fantastic, if not over-the-top event. It will give you some ideas. Below are some other things to consider in preparation for organizing your event.
It is easy, fun, and gratifying. Here is what it takes to put on a charity bike build event:
- You tell us how many bikes you want to build and the number of team members. Typically four to six members per team is optimal.
- Bikes for Goodness Sake (BFGS) will work with a local Bike Shop in your area to deliver the bikes, helmets, and tool kits. The Bike Shop will also have a bike mechanic at your event to check over the bikes after assembled.
- BFGS sends you a quote for the bikes, helmets, and tools. We offer only bike-shop-quality bikes and helmets for these good kids – light weight high-quality aluminium bikes from a bike shop, not heavy steel lower quality bikes from a big box.
- You identify a charity or you can select one, sometimes BFGS can help identify them.
- You can choose a simple bike build or a more engaging team building event. We have programs for both. A simple bike build will take about an hour.
- For a heartwarming surprise, we work to have the recipient children rush into the room after the bike build event to surprise your team. That is a special moment that no one will forget. Your team gets to enjoy to look on a child’s face when they get their new bike.
We are not an elaborate training company with a facilitator that flies in, so our cost is much lower. You are paying only for the bikes, helmets, tools, and a mechanic to be at your event. If you are looking for a simple charity bike build event that you or someone on your team can facilitate, then Bikes for Goodness Sake is right for you. However, we do have activities to spice up the build that engage the builders. We have been working through corporations, groups, and individuals for eight years giving good bikes to good kids.
One of our sponsors, Tornier, put this video together of their event. We connected Nacho, the bike mechanic, and his organization with Tornier along with delivering the bikes, tools, and helmets for the event. This embodies what Bikes for Goodness Sake is doing to help kids realize the joy of a bike and connecting them with good people like you.
Take a look at our Testimonials. We have many happy sponsors, bike shop partners, and even more happy kids.
