A couple of years ago, I was hit by a car, thrown from my bike and landed on my head. The EMT's, police and every doctor in the hospital agreed that I probably would not be alive today if it weren't for my bike helmet.
For my mitzvah project, I am raising money to purchase new bike helmets for those in need. I will purchase new helmets from Helmets R Us (a not-for-profit organization). These helmets will then be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Newark Bike Exchange which has volunteered to distribute the donated helmets with bikes for those in need.
My goal was to raise $1,000, but due to overwhelming support we have increased it to $4,000. I hope to still exceed this goal with your help! I even came up with a cool fundraising name:
H.E.A.D (Helmets Eliminating Accidental Deaths)
