Community Gift Card Blitz!
MARCH 1 – 10, 2021!
This link will be live on March 1st! Follow it to purchase Community Tune Up Fund Gift Cards! They are reserved for lower income cyclists who find themselves falling short of their repair bill.
1. Enter the amount you desire to pay
2. Skip the promotion code
3. Your name, your email
4. As recipient, put Robbie, and email@example.com
5. In the “personal message box,” write “community” and your phone number.
You will receive an email, and I will receive your redemption code, so that I can apply it DIRECTLY to repair tickets when a customer cannot afford proper, even sufficient, much less complete repair. Folks will fill out a form saying that some or all of the services/goods they received here, detailed by a copy of their receipt attached, was paid for with gift cards bought for the tune up fund. These will be kept for accounting records and taxes.
I’ll then notify you via email or phone as to how your gift card was used and when without revealing their identity to you.
More generally, on the live Google sheet maintained here, the public can find summarized repair tickets and see how the program is progressing to date.
You are free to choose any amount. Small amounts will likely assist one or maybe two people. Larger amounts have the potential to assist several people, and to make your dollar go further, I will apply as much as possible to labor first, so no sales tax must be collected on it. Stay tuned! The link goes live March 1!!!
