Passport to Happiness

Project Completed

Thank you for believing in us!

Since the first Moment of Happy in Cambodia in January 2007, 88bikes has been on a journey of joy and serendipity, a perpetual ascent. Thanks to you, our supporters, thousands of girl survivors of human trafficking from the Philippines to Nepal are exuberantly riding their bikes, while dozens of girls in Cambodia have designed and sewed their very own handmade dresses. Volunteers have led dozens of bike rides with hundreds of girls from the Navajo Nation to Mozambique, while girls in India and Mongolia have painted beautiful murals.

88bikes has a singular mission: to empower and celebrate these heroic girls so they can lead the happiest lives they were meant to lead. Now, it's time to take 88bikes to the next level. This is your personal invitation to the Passport of Happiness. You have done so much already, and we'd love for you to keep riding with us as we empower thousands more girls through this exciting campaign.

What is the Passport to Happiness? It is a new project fund established to sustain and support the growth of 88bikes. It will allow us to expand and amplify, while still maintaining the intimacy of our one-to-one connection. It will enable us to launch new Joy-based Philanthropic programs, and it will allow us to continue to use 100% of bike or dress donations for bikes and dresses.

88bikes has always been about creating a circuit of joy between donor and recipient. We've worked hard to connect people one-to-one by having each girl pose with her donor's picture and sending this picture back to you. In this same vein, we're offering unique, 88bikes gifts at every funding level, including signed and numbered 88bikes fine art prints of your choice (and, as always, a hand-written thank you card, of course!). See the donation page for details.

Thank you for believing in us, for believing in the power of Joy-Based Philanthropy™. These girls deserve happiness. They've already done the heroic work of looking forward. Now they're waiting on us to help them move forward.
