WeeCycle. Weduce. Weuse. No, this post isn’t about the new trend in green baby babble. I’m talking about WeeCycle, our hands-down fav chartiy, founded by two of Ain’t No Mom Jeans’ bffs (they freaked when they found out Colorado has one of the fastest-growing rates of childhood poverty in the nation). WeeCycle’s mission is to distribute new and gently used baby gear--bouncers, swings, car seats, cribs, highchairs, the things that really add up--to families in need, and now when you use the WeeCycle Strider PREbike coupon code, Strider Sports will donate 10% of your purchase price back to WeeCycle and give you free ground shipping to boot.
We think run/balance/PREbikes are where it’s at with toddler cycling, because they operate on the theory that teaching balance before pedaling gives kids more confidence and helps them ride more safely. Makes sense, right? To find out more about balance bikes and why they’re so great, or if you were already planning on buying a run bike for your toddler to 5-year-old, just follow this link and enter coupon code Strider2WeeCycle at checkout. Strider Sports will donate 10% of your total purchase price to WeeCycle.
Strider also donated a PREbike to WeeCycle for the charity’s family fashion show and silent auction event, the Hopscotch Hustle, coming up on April 18th at The Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver. Ain’t No Mom Jeans will be covering the Hopscotch Hustle in greater detail (S. is the fashion maven who puts all the fabulous looks together)), but mark your calendars now! With grown-up drinks for moms and dads, carnival fare, and cupcake decorating and dress up for the babes, this event is the best way for a chic (or just curious) family to spend an April afternoon whilst benefitting families in need. Admission for toddlers 4 and under is free, kids 5-12 $10, adults $20 for standard seating, $45 for premier seating (which, I’ve heard, includes a fabulous goody bag!).

If you’re not in the market for a run bike or you’re booked on the 18th, there are a lot of other ways you can help WeeCycle: donate gently-used baby gear; shop WeeCycle’s registry at Babies R Us (55068293); hold a collection drive at your home, office, school or place of worship; make a tax-deductible monetary contribution (ask your employer to match it!); and, of course, tell your friends, family and co-workers about WeeCycle.
