Heard about Qhubeka? An amazing organization that works to share bicycles to poor people in Africa.
Through an annual event, Qhubeka 5000, everyone who wish to ride a bike / run / walk a certain distance (you choose yourself how far) is invited to participate in the period between 14-19 July. The activity is registered via the link on this page, and at the same time you donate a voluntary amount.
This project deserves a "high-five"! Please take part, because one single bike can actually save many lives. The entry fee is 10 dollars which you pay when you sign up clicking the link on the bottom of this text, but you are free to donate more through the "donate"-button up in the right corner.
