Pactimo Supports World Bicycle Relief this #GivingTuesday

Pactimo Supports World Bicycle Relief this #GivingTuesday

Pactimo is proud to honor World Bicycle Relief this #GivingTuesday

Pactimo, a longtime supporter and clothing partner of World Bicycle Relief (WBR) is extremely proud to the global nonprofit this #GivingTuesday. For over 10 years, they have been dedicated to distributing specially designed, high quality bicycles through philanthropic and social enterprise programs.

Entrepreneurs use the bicycles to increase productivity and profits. Students attend class more regularly and their academic performances improve. And, health care workers visit more patients in less time, providing better, more consistent care.

WBR also promotes local economies and long-term sustainability by assembling bicycles locally and training field mechanics to service the bicycles. To date, WBR has delivered over 300,000 bicycles and trained over 1,200 field mechanics in Africa, Southeast Asia and South America.

This year, WBR has set a goal to empower 1,200 students with bicycles through #GivingTuesday fundraising on November 29th.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of charitable giving and a collaborative effort to kick off the holidays in the true spirit of the season. 

WBR participated in #GivingTuesday in 2014 and 2015 - each year exceeding their fundraising and impact goals. In 2015, they surpassed their goal of mobilizing 800 students with bicycles when supporters raised enough funds for 1,000 bicycles.

Since 2005, WBR has mobilized students, especially girl students, who face long, difficult and often dangerous journeys to school. WBR believes a simple, sturdy bicycle has the power to change lives. By providing a girl a way to get to school safely, she’s empowered to stay in school, get an education and break the cycle of poverty. WBR is confident that the power of bicycles can play an influential role in progress for all students, but especially girl students, worldwide in rural developing areas.

Pactimo will donate $25 of the cost of each World Bicycle Relief Jersey sold to support WBR's mission and 2016 #GivingTuesday goal.

You can also participate by donating directly to WBR on their website. All contributions to World Bicycle Relief’s #GivingTuesday campaign will be matched 1:1, making your gift go twice as far.

"Along with their custom and off the rack clothing for the warmer months, Pactimo has been helping cyclists warm as well. Pactimo’s Alpine Thermal RT jersey remains one of my favorite cold weather pieces, but this time Pactimo sent along a couple jackets that sit on either side of the Alpine in terms of warmth and weather protection."

As a rider, I’m picky [my friends say tweaky] about my kit. If we dress sharp, we feel good…If we feel good, we go well. The proper cycling shoe color is white, because it’s Euro, and because the European continent is the Mothership of all cycling. Life is way too short to bother with bargain kit. Did that sound tweaky?
