For 70 days this summer I will be pedaling across the United States with 32 other cyclists all having the same goal in mind. Promoting awareness about affordable housing, raising funds and building homes for those in need is the core of this organizations credo.
9.5 million low-income, working American families are spending over half of their combined income on housing. By raising awareness and funding through service oriented cycling trips, Bike and Build has year after year done something to benefit affordable housing across the country. 2012 is no different. We will be building 9 homes on our way from Providence, RI to Seattle, WA. The best part is, we aren’t the only ones. There are a total of 7 other routes going west this summer putting in the same amount of effort.
It’s through years of consistent service that Bike and Build continues to make a difference. This consistency can only be upheld with the help of people like you. No matter what our walk of life, we can all agree that everyone needs a place to call home. This is an opportunity for you and I to combat a serious problem. Please join me in helping all Americans find the safety and peace of mind that a roof provides.
