Please Support @Phoenixbikes During the DoMore24 Campaign (Today) #Arlingtonva

"The DoMore24 campaign is more than just one day of fundraising…it’s the next generation of online giving. We are creating a local movement that leverages the power of the crowd to support our region’s nonprofit organizations through focused, online giving that is directed at creating maximum impact. We have built an innovative platform to allow donors to track the progress of the campaign, see who else is participating and watch the effect of their contributions in real time. Do More 24 is funded and powered by United Way of the National Capital Area and is graciously supported by a group of committed community and corporate sponsors."   Contribute today (due to technical difficulties, the campaign was extended till today)! 

"Phoenix Bikes has two primary operations –a youth development education program and a full-service retail bike shop and. Both make up our commitment to the economic, social, and environmental health of the D.C. Metro region.

Through the use of bike repair, mechanics, and sales, we provide local youth with real-world skills and education that will better prepare them for the future.

Through our storefront, we provide the local D.C. community with affordable, refurbished bikes and repair services that help the environment, the recipient and local youth. As the largest used bike and parts shop in the D.C. Metro area, sale proceeds from our shop support the development of the organization and fund ongoing youth education programs with Phoenix Bikes.

Greatly assisted by our youth participants and volunteers, we believe that our shop provides an unparalleled learning exercise for the development of young leaders, within an immersive, real-world retail operation, providing the opportunity for:

2012-08-17 KeithInShopLearning – Youth in the shop take on new challenges, use both academic and practical skills, acquire analytical problem solving skills and engage in operations management.
Healthy Peer Interaction – Learning to work together as a team, participants gain confidence, appreciate diversity, and develop healthy, long-term friendships.

Community Service – Youth learn to plan, develop, and complete a finished product from start to finish – with its sale providing a direct impact on local neighborhoods.

Fun – Our program is meant to build friendships and promote a healthy, active lifestyle among participants.
