Just wanted to send a huge thank you to everyone who came out for the RUBARB Fundraiser a few weeks back. Despite the weather and a couple logistical errors, a ton of people came out and had a great time dancing and hanging at Dashing Bikes well into the night! For those who don’t live in New Orleans, the fundraiser isn’t the only way to show your support this season. This Tuesday, May 3rd is GiveNola Day in New Orleans. The website is Givenola.org This is a one-day, online giving event which over 700 non-profits are participating in, including RUBARB Community Bike Shop! This is our first time participating and WE NEED YOUR HELP! There are sorts of erxra prizes for the organizations, as long as we get folks donating.
RUBARB is an all volunteer community bike shop in the 9th Ward that has been going strong for 10 years! We help folks repair, maintain and build bicycles, as well as go on field trips(Jzzfest WOOP!) with youth, provide health snacks and get affordable bikes out to the community.!
Help us raise funds in the exciting, citywide event next Tuesday May 3rd(YOU CAN ONLY GIVE FOR THAT 24 HOUR PERIOD)
P.S. Even if you just donate $10, it can make a big difference
