Thank you to all who have contributed to and/or shared our Diaper Drive Event! Our original goal was to raise $2,000 in funds to purchase diapers and baby supplies for three Minneapolis mutual aid organizations (Phillips Free Store, Community Aid Network MN, and Al-Maa'Uun) but that $2k goal was quickly exceeded thanks to the generosity of our community! A few generous donations quickly brought us to our target and we decided to up the goal to $3,000!!!
Now, with our deadline/event just six days out, we have raised over $2,500 and are just slightly short of that $3k mark! If you'd like to help us meet our goal, you can Venmo us at @bikesandbitesmpls or feel free to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange an alternate donation method. We are so grateful for your support and can't thank everyone enough! With nearly $3k in funds, we should be able to buy over 150 boxes of diapers and baby supplies to distribute to the three mutual aid organizations above.
However - we desperately need help hauling these supplies on the morning of Saturday 1/2! We will meet at Richfield Target to purchase/load up bikes around 8:30am, and then distribution of diapers/baby supplies will be separated into three rides to the different organizations. The Phillips Free Store ride will be about 10 miles round trip, about 12 miles round trip to Community Aid Network MN, and about 15 miles round trip to Al-Maa'Uun. You can choose whichever route you'd like to take - just let us know if you'd like to join and we can talk details! We also have extra bike trailers and winter gear available for those of you who may want to join a ride but don't have equipment!
Please shoot us an email (email@example.com) or Instagram/Facebook DM if you would like to join us this Saturday! It will be chilly but a ton of (socially distanced/Covid-safe) fun.
Thanks again, everyone!
