Seeking Help Fundraising for The Jay Austin Simply Be Kind Foundation
Our Inspiration, Jay Austin
May 1st, 1989 - July 29th, 2018
At 389 days of cycling the world, after traveling through 27 countries, Jay Austin, a DC resident, was intentionally and brutally murdered on July 29th, 2018 in a terrorist attack in Central Asia, simply because he was an American. He was 29 years old.
After being postponed three times due to covid, our First-Annual Bike Ride & Picnic event is being held on September 19th, 2021 in New Jersey. We are so much more though.
Our mission to promote positive change consists of diverse topics, such as cultural diversity, literacy, nutrition, protecting our planet, sustainability, minimalism, and The Great Outdoors with an emphasis on cycling.
We also have merchandising ideas that will need the support of donors.
If you can relate to our causes, are passionate about creating change, and have expertise in fundraising, we would appreciate your joining our team.

Jay Austin, our inspiration, a Washington, DC resident, Georgetown University graduate with a Masters in International Relations, was cycling the world when 389 days out, on July 29th, 2018, in Tajikistan, a country in Central Asia, he and his partner, Lauren, were intentionally targeted and brutally murdered by terrorists, while literally riding their bikes, simply because they were American. Both were 29 years old. In honor of Jay, on January 1st, 2020, The Jay Austin Simply Be Kind Foundation was launched.
Jay was passionate about creating positive change for a myriad of issues encompassing cultural diversity, protecting the environment, minimalism, literacy and nutrition as well as having a love for travel and the great outdoors with a focus on cycling; living life every day to the fullest while respecting our planet. We hope to follow his lead to create a healthier and happier planet for all of us to share and to leave for generations to come.
Our current goals are to create community gardens, a cultural-diverse writing workshop and to follow the Cycling Without Age model, a world-wide program based on volunteer-piloted trishaws for seniors to 'feel the wind in their hair and return from their first ride with rosy cheeks and full of stories'.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
