Here is an example of where your money is going with Bikes for Kids

Dear JB and Sandy,

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing my grandchildren for a bicycle this year. I can’t put into words how excited I was to receive Holly’s message on my cell phone yesterday evening. I had to leave the room so my own 10 year old daughter would not see my emotions and want to know what was going on as she and my granddaughter (her niece) are the same age, same school and best of friends. The tears on my face were tears of joy and relief for my son and his family! I immediately phoned my daughter-in-law after I got myself “together”. She had no idea that I had elected my grandchildren and just earlier in the afternoon I had phoned her for some Christmas ideas for the kids. She still had no idea how or what they would be able to get for the kids and would not be able to even shop until Christmas Eve when one of them gets paid. So thank you JB and Sandy and to all the wonderful people of Austin who make this possible every year…thank you, thank you, thank you! You have made a wonderful Christmas day for not only my grandchildren but for so many others. You have a special place in heaven….I’m sure!
