Bicycle Angels is a non-profit charity that loans road bicycles for free to people that want to participate and fund raise for an eligible charity cycling or triathlon event, but don’t have a suitable bike to use, and can’t afford one. Our bicycles are loaned to motivated and committed individuals who are passionate about charity fundraising but are not financially capable of owning a bike suitable for endurance cycling. We help remove a major barrier to charity fundraising, plus engage new people into cycling. About half of our loan recipients later go on to buy their own bike. Since our inception in late 2009, we have loaned bicycles to over 350 participants who have collectively raised over $2.4 Million for important causes. Charities that have benefited to date include the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (via Team in Training), Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Diabetes Society, AIDS Lifecycle, Arthritis Foundation, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, and more. However in order to really become the charity we should be, we need serious help fundraising. We are currently 100% volunteer and need expert, experienced help seeking and applying for grants and fundraising. We currently have a Fundraising Director position open on our Board but just plain need help. Our long term goal is to have paid fundraising staff as we start to see some more significant money come in. If you have experience in grant writing and/or fundraising and would like to help out an awesome, growing charity, please check out our web site, and contact me for further discussion.

Alonesy is a new concept that aims to make support more available to teenagers via an online mentorship program. We aim to provide teenagers with two different types of mentors. The main one, which is what we are currently seeking volunteers for is a typical Big Brother/Big Sister type of mentor that can connect with a child on an ongoing basis about everyday things such as school, dream jobs, family life, sports, etc. Our other type of mentorship program connects struggling youth to trained counselors whom are able to provide a higher level of support than our traditional mentors. Our mentor teams work together to ensure that we are providing the necessary support for each person. As a volunteer mentor, you would be asked to check in on a recurring basis with your mentee via text, FaceTime, WhatsApp, etc. and create a bond with them! This is a nationwide opportunity and does not require you to be in the same location as your mentee. Just having someone to talk to can make a huge difference in their lives. Before assigning a mentee to you, we will go over some basic guidelines and learn more about you to ensure that you are paired with the right person.

If you are unable to accept the long-term commitment of a dog or cat but miss their companionship, then the HART Foster Program is for you! Our Foster Program is one of our most important means of saving the lives of endangered dogs and cats. When we receive animals for rescue, our first thought is to place it into a loving foster home until a permanent home can be found. If a foster home is not available, we have to place the animal into a kennel. While a kennel does provide a safe place for the animal to stay until he or she can be placed, it doesn't provide the love and companionship of a foster home -- and the financial burden of housing an animal in a kennel is significant. HART has established a network of foster families that provides a wonderful service to the animals that are lucky enough to be placed with them. These families constantly tell us how having the love and companionship of a dog or cat improves their lives. Please consider joining our team by offering your home as a temporary safe haven for an unfortunate animal that is in desperate need of help! Foster homes are asked only to provide the animal with love, make sure veterinary care is supplied by one of HART's participating vets (HART covers the costs), and bring the dog to at least a couple adoption events a month. Once your home has been approved by a HART Officer, you will be contacted periodically and asked to foster a pet in need. Your choice! Your decision! Sometimes you'll have the pet a week or two. Other times, you'll have your faithful friend there for a few months. Once your foster pet has been adopted, you can either move right on to the next one, or take a break in between! So many animals are given up for varying reasons; without the Foster Home Program, approximately half of these loving pets would be euthanized. Please help them by becoming the link between their old life and their new. HART covers veterinary expenses. We supply the pets, you supply the love!
