88 Bikes - You can go anywhere.
Agency by Others partner Nick Arauz played a pivotal role in the founding strategy for 88Bikes, an incredible non-profit which endows bikes to kids throughout the world, especially the heroic survivors of human trafficking. Working with Founders Dan Austin and Jared Austin, we laid the groundwork for the one-to-one giving principle and early social media and email strategy.
With each donation given to support one individual bike purchase, 88Bikes purchases bicycles from local vendors, hires local labor and connects survivors one-to-one donors. Volunteers return to lead bike rides, organize repair clinics, paint murals and lead dressmaking workshops! Founder Dan Austin calls it 'Joy–Based Philanthropy' – elevating happiness to a human need. Since 2007, the organization has given nearly 5000 bikes to heroic kids in seventeen countries.
