Hi Chris/Yarra BUG

A bunch of passionate Melbourne folk have started the first Melbourne
chapter of the worldwide organisation, Bicycles for Humanity. Its aim is
pretty straightforward - collect disused bikes and send them to people who
really need them. There's an animation on our homepage that sums it up
nicely - see www.bicyclesforhumanity.com

We are holding our first collection in East Brunswick on 21 & 22 March.
We're aiming to pack 400 bikes into a shipping container destined for
Namibia, where the bikes will be distributed to HIV/AIDS remote care
workers. Our partner organisation BEN Namibia will also turn the shipping
container itself into Bike Empowerment Centre - a bike workshop - providing
skills and employment for the local community.

It's a great project. It would be much appreciated if you could spread the
word to the Yarra BUG and help to promote the project. Our web page has
heaps of further info and a copy of our flyer is pasted and attached below
- please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks again.
