Habitat 500 mile bike ride

This is always the hardest part.

Asking you to donate to something you may or may not see.  This year I’m hoping to make sure you get to see it and the people who will live there (post ride).  I do, however, get to see what your donations build.  Every year I do the ride we have ridden to the house that your donations help build.  You see, when I ask you for a donation it’s marked to go to the “bike.home” project for Habitat for Humanity.  To me it’s a very tactile donation.  Your donation goes directly to a thing, something you can touch, a place where people live, a family, and a home.  If you wanted you could drive to the “open house” ceremony every year that we help build a “bike.home” home and take a tour.  You could walk through the house and meet the family who will be living in the house you helped build with a financial contribution.  On the Habitat for Humanity 500 mile Bike Ride (HFH500) I get to preview that house.

Please make a donation to Habitat for Humanity on my behalf, I’m rider #114.  This year I’ll post pictures of the house so you can see it too!

Mail your contribution, by July 5th 2011, to:

Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota

2401 Lowry Ave NE, Suite 210

Minneapolis, MN  55418

Or you can try:

If you use this site a 2.9% processing fee is deducted from the amount.  That a small amount compared to some of the other services, Network for Good @ 4.5% or First Giving 7%.

Or stop by the shop and drop me a check by July 9th.

Either way, Thank YOU! in advance.

Make sure you mark it for HFH500 and on behalf of Mike Kmiecik, rider #114, and please let me know so I may send you a thank you and receipt.

Thank you.


PS: the shop will be closed July 9th through the 16th while I’m out on the ride.
