How it works
-For every $5 donated between Nov 7th, 2013 & Midnight of December 16th, you will earn one chance to win the Trek Remedy 9.7 bike and other listed prizes. So if you donate $25 that is 5 chances at a bunch of prizes.
-The winners will be selected from a spread sheet using random.org.
-The winners will be notified by e-mail and asked a mountain bike related knowledge question.
-We will ship worldwide ... Customs fees and other applicable taxes will be the winner's responsibilities.

Where will your money go?
- $50 is enough to buy one child a new bike and a helmet.
- We are working with community centers, schools, youth and family service programs and established charities to identify children from low income families who will benefit from this gift.
- We will be working in locations across Canada and the USA and with enough donations, world wide.
- We aim to ensure that the children receiving these gifts are educated on basic bicycle safety and maintenance.

 I'm only 21 as of September. I grew up in a rural town just outside of a small city, We used to race little xr50s, build jumps and steal diesel from farmers to light fires after school. Now the kids I see only play grand theft auto and troll on instagram. its a sad thing to see. I am all for this program I hope the money ends up in the right hands

 It's bad here in Houston Tx, all I see is kids walking around glued to there phones or ipads. Its like people today are losing the ability to talk in person these days, instead they tweet or instagram everything now. Since I got out of college I started to donate old bikes and fix up old dirt bikes to encourage kids to go out an enjoy the world as it was meant for us to enjoy, which is far better then watching it through social media junk. I like this program I hope my money goes to right people to encourage the next generations to become athletes one day.

 But the cost to the companies that donate the equipment as prizes is MUCH less than the retail value.

 tax write offs my friend. Its all about the tax write offs. Its for a good cause and it gets them a bunch of exposure. Win win I suppose. No one really loses here.
