a bike is a terrible thing to waste

The local, non-profit organization Wheels to Africa will be collecting bikes on Saturday, December 10th from 10am-3pm at Swanson Middle School, Washington-Lee High School, and Yorktown High School.  All collected bikes will be donated to Africans in need of bikes.

A bike can provide critical transportation to reach food, water, work, school, and medical care.  If you have a bike that you don't need, don't let it go to waste.  Donate it to Wheels to Africa so someone who needs it can ride it.

Suppose you have six bikes, and you need them all. You don't need a vacuum cleaner, a dishwasher, a television, a sofa, and most furniture other than the most basic.  Unfortunately, Africans and everyone else don't really need that stuff either. But a lot of people will buy it anyway.  So you can sell such stuff and donate the proceeds to help Africans get bikes.
