Osprey Packs, Inc. has announced their continued support of the nonprofit 88bikes, a micro-philanthropy project that gives bikes to kids in developing countries, and their upcoming endowment of 200 bikes and a sustainable bike shop to the Navajo Nation.
Osprey first pledged their support for 88bikes in 2010, when they raised $2500 for the Navajo endowment through sales of their cycling-specific Raptor hydration packs at Interbike Dirt Demo, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to 88bikes.
In 2011, Osprey plans to repeat their successful fundraiser at the Interbike Dirt Demo. In addition, Osprey will recruit employees and friends to volunteer at repair and maintenance clinics for the bike recipients, and help lead the kids on a local bike tour. Additionally, they will help launch 88bikes’ first sustainable bike shop, to be located in the Navajo Nation.
