I’m a strong advocate for Charities that have big hearts and are close to home/local.
My friends have organized a great event, called PBR’s Ride-Rock-n-Rescue Charity Bike Crawl Presented by Helping My Cause and Ear Candy. I have some awesome friends, Weird Is The New Cool performing and kick-ass crew to bike crawl with. The ride is FREE, so no excuses – and what better way to start off the New Year on the right foot to help a great cause! Let me know if you’re going to be able to make it!
Ride, Rock-n-Rescue will be raising money for RESCUE, a no-kill, animal shelter that relies on donations. This organization does not lack in compassion. They frequent the state-run pounds and rescue dogs and cats on the list to be euthanized the next morning. These angels are the animals’ last hope for a loving, wonderful home. RESCUE is non-government funded and struggles to keep their shelter open, so it is very important we do something to help support them. Your sponsorship will go directly to helping these animals live instead of die alone in the pound.
The ride will also benefit Ear Candy; an organization dedicated to providing youth access to music education. Who would have ever thought that there would be no such thing as band or choir in schools? With budget cuts on the rise, more of these programs are being chopped out every year. To make things worse, Arizona is almost dead last in educational funding. We would like to raise funds to make sure these kids are getting their fair chance at music. That means giving it to an organization that will spend it on the kids and not on a new Mercedes Benz or a bloated Superintendent salary.
