Joy-Based Philanthropy

The 88bikes Foundation provides a simple and direct way to make a difference for a heroic girl, especially the survivors of human trafficking: Buy a girl a bike and she can go anywhere!

We've been endowing bikes around the world since 2007. Click the map below for an overview and check out our Impact page for more information. 

8,031 bikes have been endowed around the world since 2007.
