Help Pedal Love Grow!

 

Above: Melissa's original hand-drawn illustrations for the upcoming Pedal Love journals, day planners, gifts and more are being created now!

For the end of summer moving into fall 2017 we're working on a series of creative and leadership projects to move Pedal Love from a volunteer organization to a financially flourishing one. Our goal is to raise funds to pay our Director Melissa Balmer's salary, and for freelance work from Pedal Love Council members.

Fundraising Goal Aug 15-Sept 15, 2017 - $5,000

We're seeking seed funding now to prep our crowdsourcing campaign via iFundWomen.com. The projects we're working on are:

  • The Surprising Promise of Bicycling for America - by Jay Walljasper - Pedal Love has volunteered to host + promote this compelling digital report sponsored by Bosch eBike Systems Americas. Coming early September 2017
  • The Pedal Love Journals - to be available early November 2017
  • The Pedal Love Planning Calendars (print + digital) to be available mid/late November 2017
  • Pre-planning the Peddle Love Virtual Leadership Retreat for Women to be held late February/early March 2018. This event will be hosted on a Friday + Saturday so that both professionals and volunteers can attend.

Sept 15 - October 31, 2017 Fundraising Goal $16,000 for the Pedal Love Day Calendar & the Pedal Love Virtual Storytelling & Leadership Retreat

We have two projects for fall:

1) The creation of a series of bicycle themed print and digital day calendars featuring original hand-drawn illustrations by Melissa Balmer, and the layout designed in collaboration with the Pedal Love Council.

2) The creation of the first Pedal Love Virtual Storytelling & Leadership Retreat for Women. This low-cost retreat will be hosted completely online, but with guidance and networking for people to be able to meet in breakout groups in person locally if desired. The goal of the retreat is to bring thought leadership for storytelling, communications and leadership skills to women working and volunteering in growing active, sustainable, mindful mobility. Men are welcome, but the focus and presenters will all be women.
