Santa's Bike Force 2021 - 18th Year

JUST AN IDEA...
 
 
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 in your world 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.
 
2021 has been a challenging year for most of us. However, we are still going to celebrate with a trip to the bike store…we invite you to join us for the fun.
 
This is our 18th year and it gets bigger and bigger every year. Last year amazing Elves donated over $12,000.
 
The goal is to get your community involved and duplicate Santa's Bike Force in YOUR area!
 
Locally, Santa is arriving here in Orlando on December 16th at:
 
Joy MCC Church 2351 S. Ferncreek Avenue Orlando, Florida 32806
 
If you are near Orlando...come join us!
