Han’s Rey’s charity Wheels 4 Life provides bikes for people in developing countries in need of transportation to get to work or to school. This movie documents the dramatic impact the gift of bicycles had in one remote Tanzanian community. To be used as an informational and inspirational tool, the movie will be available soon on the Wheels 4 Life website.

What’s neat is that a lot of times they purchase the bikes in the country where they are needed so they not only help the person who receives a bike, they help the local economy too. It also helps in finding parts for fixes easier, too. You can help by donating money, check their website for more information. $150 will buy a bike, but any amount can help. If you are in the USA, you can donate $10 just by texting “WHEELS” to 85944 and then replying “YES” to confirm your donation.

  1. wow. I love the idea of wheels for life, but it’s been a while since i’ve seen anything that paternalistic. is this about bikes for africa or an ego trip for hans rey?

What do you think?
