Free used bikes for Burmese Refugees wanted!
This is for people living in Central/North Jersey or Philly...
I'm running a bike drive and I'm looking for bikes, male or female, for refugees from Burma.
Bikes need not be in great condition, must be fixable to some extent though, and need to be free. i can come pick them up.
Rest assured, they'll go to a good home and a grateful person.
If anyone care, the background for this is: I just ran a winter boot drive for a group of refugees in Trenton, and now am working on a bike drive- most of them are working crappy jobs and can't get a drivers license yet so commuting has been rough on them. i want to get bikes, fix them up, and distribute them to the refugees that can use them for commuting. so you'd be doing me and them a huge favor by giving me your crap bikes.

(or PM me, but I make no promise when I'll remember to check, so email is better)
