Maltepoo + African children = Open Heart

09-09-2010

Spinner Trixie - 1-50pc

I’m so inspired! Just heard about a couple of bicycle riders who have made their way aross the U.S. to raise money for Living Compassion’s  Africa Vulnerable Children Project. The bicyclists are accompanied by Trixie Backman — possibly the  first Maltepoo to bicycle across the United States! (Er, well, maybe she isn’t exactly peddling … but still!)

The ride started in June in Anacortes, Washington and ends (Tuesday!) in Bar Harbor, Maine.  At the end of the ride, they’ll have racked up more than 5,000 miles on the road.

If you’re inspired and want to donate, it’s not too late! 100% of your donation goes to the Africa Vulnerable Children Project. $15 covers all the basic costs of food and education for one child for an entire month. Donation info. below.

What a  fun and exciting fundraiser. I love how these folks combined doing something they love with raising money for something they love. Does it give you any ideas for how you might raise money for a cause that is close to your own heart?!
