Hello All! It's Jody and DeDe, aka, "Team Kickstands for Kids", our fundraising team for Foundation Rwanda's Build a Bike Campaign. For those of you that don't know the both of us, we have been close friends for over 10 years, we met in NYC and over the years we have bonded over many things including good wine, travel, music and sports. Some of our most memorable times together have been riding bikes along the West Side highway of Manhattan. Bike rides like this for us is a time to escape, enjoy the outdoors and see the sights. Half way around the world in Rwanda, a bike ride means so much more.  It means an education and an opportunity for a better future.

For a few years, Jody has volunteered her time and public relations expertise to Foundation Rwanda to help generate awareness for the amazing work that they do. Jody enlisted DeDe's help on a few projects and now we're working together on the Build a Bike Campaign this summer.

We hope that we can count on your support and donations (big and small!) to help change lives in Rwanda. Jody and DeDe - Team Kickstands for Kids!
