Between February 7-14th, Portland Design Works (PDW) will be donating 100% of its sales to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
As PDW states, “The bicycle is a simple tool—a couple of circles and triangles that enable self propulsion. But those of us that ride them know that they’re more powerful than their design suggests. We know that the bicycle can power revolutions—those in our legs, in our hearts and minds and in our communities. We’ve witnessed their positive impact in the past and are hopeful for the change they will bring to our future. Bicycles are machines of freedom.
The American Civil Liberties Union is also a machine of freedom, a non-partisan organization that works to protect and defend the rights and liberties which have been guaranteed to us in our country’s Constitution. In support of the important work the ACLU is doing we’re donating 100% of our sales to the ACLU for the next week—Tuesday, February 7th thru Tuesday, February 14th.”
PDW co-founder Erik Olson says, “Normally our charitable contributions are aimed at efforts to get more people out there riding bikes, but these aren’t normal times. We have to do what we can to ensure, like we recited in grade school, ‘liberty and justice for all.”
What can you do? Just buy something from PDW, and they’ll donate that money to the ACLU. It’s a win-win. Or, you can choose to donate directly to the ACLU Foundation.
