The Get Lit program organized by Jeff Bernards and Shift to Bikes has been a great success. This year they’ve given away over 500 pairs of high-quality Planet Bike lights…for free! Jeff’s innovative program has inspired a similar program by the Portland Police and the City of Portland.
Despite this success, there are still many cyclists who are very vulnerable because they’re out on the streets at night without adequate lighting. You can help put lights in the hands of the needy by donating to Jeff and “Get Lit”. Besides a small grant, Jeff relies on your donations to keep this awesome program going strong.
There are two ways to make a donation:
- Online at ShiftToBikes.org
- Snail mail – Make checks payable to “City Repair Project” and put “Get Lit” in the memo, then send to:
