Ride for Veterans

Cycling and anything that keeps the wheels turning. Marine veteran remembering the time I served as well as looking to help others.

Homeless Veterans’ Thanksgiving 2014. (I’ll need your help.)

My initial plan to do what I can this fall and help some local homeless veterans have a Thanksgiving and a show of support.

How many times have you been sitting in your car and came upon a man holding a cardboard sign? I know not everyone has a handful of change or money they are willing to hand over and that’s fine. I’ve been guilty of it before as well. Pretending not to see the individual, changing the radio stations or playing with my phone just so I didn’t have to look them in the face. I’d like to begin to make up for all those times with this small effort.

For Thanksgiving this year I’m going to cook a turkey and deliver it with whatever food I can gather. In order to help these veterans for more than just one day I’ll be setting up a site for crowd funding to collect monetary donations. My hope is that by getting this small gesture out to as many people as I can that it’ll be enough to change the life, or better yet lives of the men and women that are out walking the streets of a country they fought to protect.

I’m unable to begin my main ride around the perimeter of the United States, however that doesn’t preclude me from starting to help. If you’re in the Orlando area and would like to help on Thanksgiving by delivering the items please let me know! (LegsBPedaling@Gmail.com)  DONATIONS WELCOME HERE.

 

The ABSOLUTE minimum favor I’m asking of those reading this is to get this message in front of anyone that is grateful for their FREEDOM.

 

Let's do this

 ADDITIONALLY: For every $2.00 raised I’ll ride 1 mile. Let’s not make this a ride around the block…http://www.gofundme.com/Ride-For-Veterans

 

Again when I have everything set up and ready to roll I’ll make a part 2 to this post. Thank you all in advance and I challenge you to also help in your local area. Don’t let them believe no one cares!
