Tall Paul's Bikes for Kids

Tall Paul is an amazing man and a community role model: with extremely limited resources, he builds and tricks out old bicycles for ANY child who has a report card with at least three As. Did I mention he is 60 years old and homeless? He lives in an old RV that is parked in an industrial part of West Oakland, and he recycles scrap metal in order to get the supplies he needs to work on the bikes. 

Times are tough all around, I get that, yet here is a man who has NOTHING and is motivating children to stay in school and get good grades. More kids in school = less kids getting into trouble on the streets. The donation link on his Facebook page (Tall Paul's Bikes) has expired, so because Tall Paul is so inspiring, I have taken it upon myself to help him raise money so he can continue to do good work in the community. And don't worry, I know exactly where his RV is parked so I can get the funds to him ; )

If you are so inclined, any amount that you can donate will be very much appreciated. I will keep you all updated on our progress.
