Good Karma Bikes was the recipient of a $550 donation from Ms. Lamb and Mrs. Manfre's second grade class of the Monticello Academy to purchase bicycles for our clients.
The second graders made a goal to raise enough money to donate 3 to 4 bicycles. Instead, they raised enough money for eleven bicycles.
Most of the second graders did extra chores to raise money to contribute.
It was a huge success. The second grade class has never done this well.
For their efforts, Good Karma Bikes gave each of the 44 second grade students a Good Karma Bikes button.
