Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Good Karma Bikes (GKB) provides homeless people, youth from low-income families, and the working poor with safe, reliable bicycle transportation to provide them the freedom and ability to travel to the places, appointments and people that can facilitate their improved quality of life; and sometimes, a way off the streets and into a better life.
Homeless and very low income workers are often deprived of a basic personal freedom most of us take for granted - the ability to travel where and when they desire. That's why Good Karma Bikes is dedicated to: Transportation for Transformation!
Our Good Karma Bikes manifesto is simple and straightforward: provide and repair homeless and low income youth and adults' bicycles, for free. No need is turned away at our community bike repair clinics, where we teach bicycle mechanic skills to interested clients and volunteers so that they may join us in service to others. The "pay it forward" spirit is strong within our community. And if that weren't enough, Good Karma Bikes serves as credible and compelling job references for our client-volunteers.
Transportation for Transformation.
Supporting the homeless.
They take re-use of parts to the next level.
Friendly, knowledgeable and supportive staff and surprisingly good working conditions (given their resources).
