What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a day of global commitment to generosity and giving. This year it falls on Tuesday, November 28. Since 2012, Nonprofits, community organizers, grassroots groups, and mutual aid networks from all over the world have been using GivingTuesday as a movement to raise funds and awareness for their work. Last year, over 35 million people helped raise over $3.1 billion dollars in just 24 hours on Giving Tuesday 2022.
What is Bikes Not Bombs?
Bikes Not Bombs (BNB) is a Boston nonprofit that uses bicycles as vehicles for social change to increase economic mobility for Black and other marginalized people in Boston and the Global South. Since our founding in 1984, BNB has collected thousands of donated bikes each year, which we repurpose by shipping bikes, parts and tools to international partners in Africa, Central America, and the Caribbean. We also use these bicycles in our innovative youth development programs, where hundreds of youth each year earn bikes they have learned to refurbish, and then become eligible for a three-year paid Youth Apprenticeship at BNB. Our mission-driven, full service Bike Shop & Training Center sells new and refurbished bicycles.
Your donation will now have an even greater impact, as each contribution made on Giving Tuesday to BNB will be matched dollar-for-dollar, creating a ripple effect of generosity and amplifying your impact.
