Support World Bicycle Relief by eating chocolate

Theo Chocolate in Fremont loves bikes. We featured their Bicycle Benefits deal a few months ago (half price chocolate!), but now they have gone a step further: A bar that benefits World Bicycle Relief.

From Theo:

“We are partnering with World Bicycle Relief to advance our mutual efforts to create economic and educational opportunities in African communities. WBR’s programs align beautifully with Theo’s own in that they emphasize cultivation and support of sustainable livelihoods for people. At Theo, we believe this is the most impactful way to effect positive, long-term change.” Joe Whinney, Theo CEO & Founder

Our newest partner bar features Theo’s award-winning 70% dark chocolate and a pinch of sea salt. Proceeds from the sale of each bar will help provide students, health care workers, and entrepreneurs in rural Africa with specially designed, locally assembled WBR bicycles.

This comes as World Bicycle Relief reached a milestone of 100,000 bikes distributed to people in sub-Saharan Africa. The organization is also the beneficiary of Cascade Bicycle Club’s new Red-Bell 100, a fully supported scenic ride from Redmond to Bellingham June 30.

World Bicycle Relief — whose Chief Operating Officer Michael Kollins lives in Seattle and works out of Seattle Bike Blog partner Office Nomads — provides bicycles to people in Africa who can use them to dramatically improve their lives. The bikes are specifically designed for life in Africa and are in large part sourced and built in African facilities.

    For those of you without dogs you can by cocoa mulch for your garden. Works great, looks great, and smells great too.

    Here is a video of me hauling three bags home on my cargo bike.
