For Kids in Need, the Gift of Wheels
Why focus on children with a parent in prison?
We [my mom and I] had had experience with loved ones in prison, so we knew how it's a lot more difficult around the holiday...We don't want these kids to feel abandoned or anything, so when we're able to give them a Christmas gift, especially a bike, we try to show them the joy and the good in life.
And how did you decide on bikes?
I loved bikes when I was little. And all kids want bikes, pretty much.
What kind of impact has the project made on you?
It's become a huge part of my life. We don't even question if we're going to do it again the next year or not. Christmas season for us is bike season.
What is your goal with the project?
We've been trying to start a franchise so we can get bikes out to more families in other cities, not just in San Antonio.
