Keep in mind that you can donate as a group or family and have BAP buy a bicycle in your family or organization’s name. BAP will then keep you posted on the progress of the family using the bicycle you bought for them.

Donate your Birthday to BAP

Instead of asking for Christmas or birthday gifts from families and friends, you can have BAP send emails to all your friends and family asking that they donate to BAP the money that would have been spent on your gifts. See our facebook page for details.

Spread the Word

Gather fellow friends, family and colleagues that are interested in the BAP idea and help us fundraise and spread the word.

Students can look to gather peers interested in the idea of BAP to organize fundraisers and come up with other ideas to help achieve BAP's goals. Also, talk to campus organizations to buy/fundraise for a bicycle to be given to a Ugandan family in their name. Ask BAP to send you fundraising materials and stay up to date with current BAP events:
