Let’s Ride!?

It’s here! Yes, our One Year Assessment report is available and we’re excited to share it! This report demonstrates what all of our supporters have helped us accomplish in the first year of Little Ripples.

Now what’s on the way is an exciting season ahead. Fall will be a critical time for our program as we embark on expanding Little Ripples using in-home centers called Ponds. In order to raise funds to launch more Ponds, we’re hosting the Tour de Goz Amer! For the entire month of October, we’re asking you and your community to spin your bicycle wheels for peace and education for Darfur refugees. By collecting pledges for every mile you bike around town, for exercise, in a spin class, or to and from work (yes, your daily bike commute counts), you will help us open more Little Ripples Ponds, reach more children and empower more women.

Then, while our i-ACT team is in camp Goz Amer where there is a strong biking culture, we will organize a bike race among refugees, the Tour de Goz Amer, and supporters like you will be able to follow the race and meet the racers through social media and on our blog!

#Spin4Darfur, please say you’re in!? If so, register here and download the Tour de Goz Amer Toolkit to guide you. The toolkit has lots more information, how to’s, tips, and ways to get your friends and family involved.

Lastly, we can’t say it enough. Thank you for your support. With your ongoing help, we continue to create Little Ripples and plant a seed of peace and hope for Darfur.

Cheers, Sara-Christine
