Santa’s Bike Force 8th Annual Giveaway

Santa's Bike Force 8th Annual Giveaway

Article ‘Just An Idea’  from santasbikeforce.wordpress.com

OK…take a deep breath…slow down from the hectic Holiday “Busy Ness” and think back…way back.

Remember getting your first bike?

Remember how shiny and new it was?

Remember the feelings you had for the person who gave it to you…the loved one who put it together for you…taught you how to ride?

Remember your first taste of freedom as you wobbled down the driveway for the first time…training wheels and streamers and all?

My first bike…what a wonderful, happy day!

Just an idea?

What if…

You and everyone on your email list or Facebook page or Tweeters bought a child their first bike this Holiday Season…a child that most likely would not get one this year…whether you know the child…whether the child is a stranger…doesn’t matter.

What if…

You ordered a bike on-line and had it delivered to a needy neighbor?

What if…

Your social club…your cul-de-sac…your place of worship organized a last minute bike drive?

What kind of difference could we make this Season?

Excuses…plenty…

It’s last minute…I’m not organized…that takes work…so what?

Make it happen anyway!

It’s a lot of money…I’ve spent too much already…so what…the smile on the kid’s face will be worth it.

Make it happen anyway!

It’s a pain to get to the bike store…don’t you know how much traffic we have in our town…don’t you know how crazy people are in the stores this time of year…and the lines…so what…it’s a lifetime memory for some great kid.

Make it happen anyway!

Rules of the Game

There are no rules…do it anonymously…do it publicly…do it with your company…do it by yourself…buy one…buy 10…buy 1,000…doesn’t matter…just consider the idea of spreading this idea to everyone you know. Invite them to do the same…this is going to be fun.

2012 has been another wonderful and prosperous year…and we going to celebrate it with a trip to the bike store…I invite you to join us for the fun.

This is our 8th year and it get’s bigger and bigger every year…last year the idea spread to 12 countries…let’s double that this year.

Find us on FACEBOOK under Santa’s Bike Force…upload your photos…ideas…thoughts. Read about the stories from last year and see more photos.

It’s just an idea!

With sincere love and gratitude this Season,

Billy and Tom

PS: Share your story…how did it go…pictures of the kids…help this become an annual tradition? Let’s put the stories on Facebook…who knows where this could go? Just an idea…

PSS: If you not able to get to the store, then please forward this email to your list…but also…

Santa plans on working with HotSpots Magazine and www.browardhouse.org here in South Florida again to give families impacted with HIV a bike this year.

Our goal is 50 bikes!

You can help us kick off the giving season by making a kid’s Christmas wish for a new, shiny bike come true!

Just click below:

We will go to the store and buy a bike and helmet in your honor. The package typically totals $100, but all contributions are appreciated.

Thanks again for being Santa’s Little Elf!

 

Thank you for sharing such an amazing idea with us this holiday season!

I am honored and delighted to share this with everyone!

What an extraordinary way to share in a child’s Christmas excitement by helping to make one of their dreams come true!

By creating a life-long, and everlasting memory of their favorite Christmas … a similar memory to the ones we still treasure today!

If we all get together and just do a little … it can make the biggest impact on a child!

❤ Together we can make a difference!  

Much Love! Be well.
