The images are riveting. The situation is desperate. Those fleeing conflict in Syria and other war zones around the world, along with survivors of natural disasters such as the earthquakes in Nepal last spring, need aid to rebuild their lives. With winter approaching, even just their immediate needs – warm clothes, shelter, and food, will be more important than ever. Bike Doctor wants to help. So we will be donating a percentage of our profits  to three registered aid organizations working to alleviate the suffering.

There’s lots of great reasons to make cycling part of your everyday lifestyle. Improved health, less stress, and reduced fossil fuel reliance are just a few. But we’ve added another. From now until Dec. 31st, 2015, when you make a purchase at Bike Doctor, we will donate 5% of our profit to one of the following organizations:

We chose these groups for a couple of reasons. They are well-regarded, effective organizations doing vital work ‘on the ground’ where people need their help the most. They have the experience and expertise that can make the most of the donations they receive. And importantly, donations to UNHCR and Doctors Without Borders triggers matching funds from the Canadian government via the Syria Emergency Relief Fund. So when you come in to Bike Doctor for your cycling needs, every dollar we send to help refugees has an impact.

Take a look at that Christmas list, note the bike riders you’ll be buying for, and come down to Bike Doctor for great selection, expert advice, and an easy way to make a difference. Your gift to a loved one will also help those in dire need. Or, treat yourself. Maybe it’s time for a great new bike, waterproof panniers, or even just some winter riding gloves? With end-of-season prices in a climate that’s ideal for year-round riding, this is a great opportunity to come into Bike Doctor – to get the gear you want and help those less fortunate at the same time.
