• ————ENDED! See the bottom for results! ———–

    From July 28, 2012 – August 3, 2012, for every like we get on this post we will donate 1 dollar from the proceeds of the repainted Bianchi bike to Sick Kids hospital.

    The student life isn’t too glamorous and if you’ve worked a minimum wage job, you know there isn’t much room for disposable income. I’ve always had this idea of donating money I didn’t have to charity. If I could still give the gift of money without forcing myself to eat Kraft Dinner three times a day for the next week wouldn’t that be perfect?

    Pledges are nice, but you also have to guilt your already poor friends into donating what little money they have. On the other hand, when you are approached for a pledge, it’s a reminder of how little money you actually have. So this is TVB’s guilt free solution. We’ve done all the hard work and restored this bike back to perfection. We are now selling it for $400. For every like that we receive on this post, we will donate $1 from the proceeds of the bike to sick kids hospital (maximum of $400)

    This means if we get 400 likes, all of it goes to Sick Kids hospital. Simple as that. If all you had to do was click one button and we would donate $1, would you do it?

    Let’s make this a group effort! Tell as many people as you can, we want to see all $400 go! (If you don’t see the like button, click on the title and then scroll down)

    90 Likes!!! Let’s keep going we are 1/4 of the way there!!!

    *********August 1, 2012 Update**********
    110 Likes is more than we expected, let’s keep going, spread the word!

    *********August 7, 2012 Update**********
    I think we can do better than 118! We’ve sold the bike but we’re not happy with 118, so we’ve decided to extend it until the end of this Friday.

    Thank you for all 140 likes! Since our goal was 400 we decided we would match the 140 likes and then round to the closest 100.

    If my Math is correct….140×2 = 280….rounding up = 300!

    Hopefully next time we reach our goal! Thank you to everyone.
