Building, customizing, and up-cycling bicycles is an art we cherish so much, but the real drive behind what we do sits in the smiles of the children we donate bicycles to every year.
If you ask any child in a refugee camp: what do you want for your birthday? The answer is almost always: A bicycle! We could all agree that riding a bicycle comes with a sense of endless freedom, childhood, and stimulation, where all your senses are experiencing life in all the right doses. That sense of happiness is what we believe is a necessity and not a luxury, so is education and the right for females and males to get to the schools that are often far away from the camp they live in and are often a gruesome walk on foot when the moody seasonal weather kicks in. That is the main reason we donate one bicycle for every five bicycles we sell. Giving back to communities by contributing to children's mobility is a lifelong dream. Now, we see it happening every year and it brings our hearts a sense of warmth and hope. Paying it forward is a real concept, it works, it changes lives and every Charicycle you buy contributes to that.
This video is one of our first donated batches. This year we are planning an impactful program with a bunch of inspiring organizations and we can't wait to tell you all about it... stay tuned.
