Bikes for Japan

Do you have a bicycle sitting around unused? Would you like to send it to Tohoku to help survivors of the earthquake/tsunami gain a mode of transportation to get to work, find work, get to school, whatever? With many cars disappearing in the tsunami, a gift of a bicycle can offer some independence to people with very little right now.

Check out this link: Bikes for Japan. Someone will actually come to your home and get the bikes you are willing to donate (looks like this program is for the Tokyo area only though).

This is a terrific grass-roots program organized by a bicycle mechanic. Please look into it if you have any bicycles to offer.

Go here for pictures of volunteers and a count of how many bikes have been gathered so far.

Thanks to Eucharia from MIJ for making me aware of this program.
