Last Chance to Donate and WIN!

September 23, 2010

Tomorrow the winner of the single speed 69’er will be announced!  You will have until approximately noon to donate (although please continue to donate if you just would like to help and don’t care about winning) until the winner is drawn and will be contacted via email.  Thanks to all who have already donated!  Every ten dollars equals one chance to win the bike.  You don;t have to have a PayPal account to donate, you can also use a major credit card or electronic check.  Your secure donation will help purchase glasses and medicines to help the very needy in India, and many children like these:

How can you say no to these faces?


I have ordered some glasses already from the Lions Club sorting facility in Midland, Texas.  I hope to take nearly one thousand pairs of glasses with me and will likely see about four hundred people over the course of three-and-a-half days.  Last year we ran out of some critical medicines, so hopefully we can have funding for more this year.  The area we are serving is a hotbed for tuberculosis, for which we saw a dozen cases last year, as well as malaria, dental problems, chronic back and neck pain (from days spent bent over tending to rice crops), cataracts, and one unknown pregnancy.

Here is a picture of my clinic last year, set in a 9’x9′ dirt-floored schoolroom.  This year we are to have a slightly larger facility.

2 clinic lanes and an optical in 9'x9'.


Following are a few more pictures of the single-speed 69’er.  I am also including a new Spaceman flask holder by Ahearne and a Surly flask to hold your hydration beverage of choice (CarboRocket in my case).  Rumor has it it will also hold whiskey.  Let me assure you your odds of winning are still quite good!  Please dig deep and help those much less fortunate.  Winning a $1200 bike for $10 would be an excellent investment!

Win me!

Donate to win.

Surly Tuggnut tensioner: also serves as a bottle opener!
