The other day we got an email from Cleary Bikes telling us about an opportunity to donate a bike to our local Whole F0ods. The bike would be part of a raffle with all proceeds going to support the Whole Planet Foundation, an organization helping to alleviate poverty through micro-credit loans.
So, last week we dropped off a “Very Orange” Cleary Starfish balance bike to the Whole Foods on 2001 Pennsylvania Ave and the raffle is now under way.
We’ve heard from Whole Foods that the bike is making quite a splash with shoppers. It’s uniquely built like a real bike, but for the smallest of riders.
And definitely buy a raffle ticket to support the cause. You can get one for a dollar, or seven for $5….don’t be dismayed if you don’t win the bike, we’ve got several here at the shop!
