I am Winly Mai, the 2014 Margaret Chin Academic Scholarship winner, set to embark on a summer challenge/trip. This summer I'm biking on a coastal route across America renovating, building, & fixing houses along the way with a nonprofit organization called Bike and Build. Which is incredible since I have never been to any of the places scheduled in my route, and what's even more amazing is that I will be fixing their home! I'll give you a sneak-peak of my schedule:
Jul 12 - Portland, ME
Jul 15 - Salem, MA
Jul 17 - Nantucket, MA
Jul 18 - Martha's Vineyard, MA
Jul 23 - New Haven, CT
Jul 26 - New York City, NY
Bike and Build is a nonprofit organization dedicated in recruiting volunteers of ages 18-21 (I believe I forgot the age gap). Each volunteer is required to fundraise $2,250, but for scholarship recipients like myself, our goal is $500. These donations go towards other nonprofit organizations such as Rebuilding Together, Habitat for Humanity, etc. that rebuilds homes. Our mission is to renovate homeowner's houses to make it more safe to live in. For example, we volunteer and do tasks such as:
-installing safety devices (fire alarms etc)
-install insulations to reduce gas/electric bills
-basically we fix anything to keep homeowners safe and warm because they can't financially afford to do it themselves.
So from July 6th to July 27th I'll be biking over 800 miles from Bar Harbor, Maine to New York City, New York for the cause of affordable housing.
I can't wait to start this trip but before that I need your help, well, I actually need your help in helping others! As you may know, I'm a Bike and Build scholarship recipient and also a volunteer. We count on donations made by you to buy supplies to renovate houses. Luckily for me as a scholarship recipient, I only need to raise $500 instead of the regular amount of $2,250.
I would love it if you could donate any amount to my bike&build page, which is also my favorite page on bikeandbuild.org .
And since I'm so excited for this trip, I'll add in an extra little something: For those who donated $50+, I'm willing to draw a portrait for you. BUT:
-You need to screenshot your transaction of every page you're directed to. (You could blur out your credit card number & any other personal information.) Make sure you show me that the amount you donated is $50+.
I know that $50 is a lot, but bikeandbuild nor I earn any from it, all of it goes toward others. And again, you could donate as much as you want.
If you're still not convinced that bikeandbuild is a great organization, watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lGmXUt4yEM !

Thank you for supporting us!
